• Nexus directors Factory Fifteen and Nexus Interactive Arts (NIA) has collaborated with agency Mullen on behalf of American Greetings Corporation, a leading greeting card company and manufacturer of innovative social expression products, to create the ThankList; a digital experience that encourages everyone to start practicing gratitude by writing their own ThankList. All messages of thanks are aggregated into a collective, never-ending ThankList.

    To write your own ThankList and learn more about this movement encouraging gratitude, visit Thanklist.com.

    At the heart of the experience, Factory Fifteen, created an elegant particle-based film that can be seamlessly customized to thank up to four people and shared via Twitter, Facebook and Google+. In addition to the customised thank you notes embedded in the film, users are also able to input their own photo to be rendered in particles as part of the big reveal at the end.

  • NEW PROJECT: THE BUG MUSIC VIDEO 
    "Set in a landscape which combines London’s brutalist architecture with CG-generated skyscrapers, the new short film by Factory Fifteen for The Bug’s "Function / Void" sees the daily, monotonous routine of its protagonist suddenly and inexplicably start to crumble. A collaboration with digital studio and production company Nexus, the new video, was created for two tracks off The Bug’s album, album Angels & Devils (out now on Ninja Tune) and was produced in conjunction with The Creators Project". - Kevin Holmes
