Citizenfour

The Contraband team designed and built these unique rich media and mobile banner ads for The Weinstein Company’s film, Citizenfour. The rich media banners feature a screen glitch and scrambling text animation which hammers home the technological aspect of the film. The mobile banners respond to the user’s mobile device orientation, making the banner change perspective in 3D depending on how you hold your phone. A surveillance camera glitch animation is coded in Pixi.js for buttery smooth animation on mobile GPUs. Combined, these effects give the impression that Edward Snowden is a hologram trapped inside your phone, reinforcing the surveillance themes of the film.
