Flying People Over Manhattan’s Skyline

  • Sky-writing and airplane banners are pretty nice outdoor advertising concepts, but not as outstanding as flying people! These remarkable objects in the the sky are remotely controlled human-shaped aircrafts. This is a marketing campaign of 20th Century Fox to promote its newest blockbuster Chronicle. The creator of the controversial concept is Thinkmodo, the office that also created the iPad head girl in Bryant park in New York, which we wrote about last Summer.

    “Since the three main characters of the movie have the ability to fly, we came up with the idea of staging a few “flying people” sightings around NYC. We achieved that illusion by having 3 custom-made aircraft (which were shaped like human beings) fly above designated areas in NYC and NJ.”
