2016 North American Auto Show
For the North American International Auto Show, FCA in partnership with Spinifex and GPJ created the first of its kind at a global auto show—a choreographed, theatrical experience titled “Gears”.
I worked as a senior design creative on the project, developing the look, feel, and animations for the Ram, Dodge, and Alfa Romeo sections of the show.
Bringing together video content, lighting and audio in unparalleled synchronicity, “Gears” combined the power of theater with linear storytelling, taking the audience experience to dramatic new heights.
