Love is in the air! We couldn't have been more excited for our friends at Eleven when they collaborated with Virgin Group airlines to make a groundbreaking short film that tells the tale of a whirlwind airplane romance. The film was the first ever to be filmed at 35,000 feet, covering three continents and 28,000 miles. After premiering at the LA Film Festival, the Rom-Com needed a suitably sweet place to live online.
Joining forces with Eleven, we developed a parallaxing experience with finely crafted animation details that worked to house the one-of-a-kind film as well as showcased the unique features of the fashion-forward airlines. The end result was a simple (yet stunning) engagement that went on to win a People’s Choice Webby.
From their upper class suite to their fancy sit-down bar, we featured all the ways to travel in style on Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia."Departure Date" was shot alongside Virgin's real passengers on regularly scheduled flights. Pretty cool!
