Chevalier Advertising asked Monovich to direct and animate a spot for Nikon that (literally) highlights the unique features of products it offers for the active outdoorsman. Monovich took the existing aesthetic of the Nikon print campaign and brought it to life with light streaks and a seamless camera move that ties all of the products together.
Fresh Paint came to Monovich and asked for a hand putting together a concept for Turner Classic Movies. The concept for the piece, a movie open, was a Rube Goldberg type machine set up by a worker on set who wanted to take a break and catch a flick. Monovich created a contraption that used stage lights to bake popcorn, bearings to flip on the projector, and pullies that reclined the lounge chair just in time to watch the curtain open and the lights dim.
When it comes to training employees, its hard to keep people engaged…especially if your video is five minutes long. Nike enlisted Monovich to direct a training piece which educates its employees in all manner of sales and service. The piece had to include a ginormous quantity of training information while at the same time keeping its viewers engaged and entertained enough to retain its important message and apply it later on the sales floor. This montage shows a selection of those memorable moments.
Factory Labs asked Monovich to lend a hand in the form of an intro video for the Ironman 2 / Audi R8 Spyder micro-site. Monovich took Ironman and Audi footage, sliced, diced, and added interstitial motion graphics to co-brand the two while maintaining the established aesthetics of each brand.
Tronic asked Monovich to join the effort to redesign Saatchi Gallery, an online art portal. Monovich was asked to imagine a new online gallery experience that presented art in a dimensional space with an added social networking component. Monovich created an abstract space that presented the user with multiple ways to discover, view, and interact with the art and other online visitors.

Psyop asked Monovich to lend his CG eye to the look/feel development for a Lincoln MKT pitch. Monovich worked remotely with director Laurent Ledru to show the client the seamless blending of highlights and camera moves that would be used to underscore the various features of the MKT itself. Psyop won production of the full spot, which they produced in LA and NY.
Digital Kitchen invited Monovich to lend his design and 3d abilities to a pitch effort for Walmart and 1-800-Contacts. Monovich created a metaphorical world made of paper that celebrates the arrival of the 1-800-Contacts brand at Walmart stores everywhere.
Instead of simply showing static frames for the storyboard, diorama-style motion boards were created.
