Describe the brief from the client
The brief was to create a music video & promotional items for the Japanese band androp's single ‘World. Words. Lights.’

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to create a music video and promotional items for ‘World. Words. Lights.’ with only a low budget. The output had to be engaging and appealing to the tech savvy young audience of androp.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We developed a series of music video ‘toys’ for the band androp's new dance track ‘World. Words. Lights.’ The lyrics such as ‘lights’, ‘dance music’, and the mechanical beats inspired us to create a series of real dancing robot toys, which we used for the promotion. We filmed the toys to create a music video, brought them to concerts and exhibitions and also sold them online. The profits went to the creators to compensate for the low production budget.
The toys allowed fans to interact with music in a new way, whilst we experimented with a new business model for low budget projects.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The video was showcased on numerous blogs, magazines, and TV shows, and androp's all-Japan tour that is showcased the toys. They sold out in just seconds.
