Newton Investment Management
Newton Investment Management is a London-based global investment management firm with more than $70 billion assets under management.
Speakeasy manages the firm’s annual conferences and produces high-impact event opener films.
One of the event themes was optical illusions, reflecting the deceptive and complex nature of the situation in world markets.
Our opening film recreates a series of classic optical illusions to fool the audience and open their minds to the idea that all may not be as it seems.
Featuring shapes that continuously change, pulsing neon lights, visual distortions and sparsely used captions, the animation encourages the audience to see challenges, scenarios or possibilities from new angles.
The rhythmic, techno soundtrack is key feature, adding an other-worldly, future-looking mood to the film.
