Amazing in Motion - STROBE

STROBE showcases Lexus' innovative design and technology through imagination. Directed by Adam Berg, STROBE features stunt men and acrobatic performers in advanced LED light suits to tell the story of one man's incredible journey across the Kuala Lumpur skyline at night. The bespoke suits were conceived by Hollywood costume designer Vin Burnham and technical director Adam Wright -- taking design cues from Lexus vehicles, including the iconic spindle grille and LED headlights. A purpose built computer system and complex DMX software was created to wirelessly trigger the suits to strobe on demand, producing the breathtaking display seen in the film. STROBE is the third in the Amazing in Motion project series by Lexus. Visit amazinginmotion.com to experience the full story behind STROBE and to see the other Amazing in Motion projects.

Amazing in Motion - 'Steps'

'Steps' is the story of an 11-foot figure moving through the city in search of something special. Directed by Daniel Kleinman, the aim of 'Steps' was to explore human motion in a different way. The figures featured were the result of painstaking hand craftsmanship combined with state of the art innovation, a balance of the organic human shape and technical precision where the story of their design was a story of a leap into the unknown. Standing over 11 feet tall, each figure required 5 puppeteers all working in perfect harmony. The result was a human story that was truly Amazing In Motion. THE STEPS TO 'STEPS' The process of creating the figures was an incredible one. We've created a website that includes documentary films about the design and performance behind the figures, along with behind the scenes photo galleries and interactive experiences that bring you closer to the figures and the process that brought them to life.
