CICLOPE Shanghai last Thursday was a huge success, gathering over 150 of the most active players in the local market from creative agencies, production companies, post and music houses.
Hosted by leading local production company Gwantsi, post production house Fin Design & Effects and digital creative production company MediaMonks, the conference and networking event was held at the trendy Waterhouse Hotel, at South Bund, and was locally organized by SHP+.
Jacqueline Zhang, Executive Producer at Gwantsi, gave a very enthusiastic opening speech sharing her experience as a judge of CICLOPE Festival in 2014, and explaining the importance of a having a festival like this in China.
In words of Jan Willem, responsible for developing MediaMonks in Asia Pacific, “Given the amazing growth of China as well as the exciting development of the digital space in this market it really was quite a no-brainer to come to Shanghai.”
The conference started with Eric Cruz, Executive Creative Director of AKQA Shanghai, who shared the process behind the making of Nike Rise, which probably was one of the most challenging brand installations recently done in China.
Then Fin Design´s VFX supervisor Stuart White shared the latest works developed by the company in the local market, including a cutting edge VR project on which they are currently working.
Last but not least the evening ended with drinks and good music, becoming the very first edition of what will probably become a ‘must do’ event for the local ad community.
