Here’s the excerpt from the blog:

Bad contest

Mathieu and all the post-production team are working on BABYLON AD as I am typing these lines. BABYLON AD or BAD as we call it, is an adventure set in a close future, starring Vin Diesel, Melanie Thierry, Michelle Yeoh, Mark Strong, Gérard Depardieu, Lambert Wilson, Charlotte Rampling … and many more.

Mathieu’s goal is to enhance the authenticity of this film by adding futuristic and innovative ads and fake news footage. We will integrate them, throughout the film on various screens : futuristic TVs, personal tablets, vehicles and especially on a huge scale, on the sides of New York buildings. That is why he though he should launch this contest to give a chance to anyone who wishes to show their vision of the future.
