Monday Jul 31, 2017
American Express (AmEx) and its agency DigitasLBi are collaborating with the New York Times Company to leverage both its distribution and in-house experiential design agency Fake Love to raiseawareness for the repositioned Platinum Card.
The “Platinum Transported" initiative incorporates 360º virtual reality to provide viewers with an immersive digital adventure. Thefirst episode "Taste" features chef David Chang exploring different combinations of flavors presented in an unexpected ways.
DigitasLBi conceived of the initial creative across alldigital and social platforms while Fake Love helped to develop creative and the technical side.
"During the conceptualization process, we quickly discovered that 360º was the best way topluck the viewer out of their environment and transport them into this unchartered sensory experience," says Aline Ridolfi, creative director, Fake Love. For the Taste film - which "focuses on perhapsthe most intimate of the senses" - the campaign wanted to bring the viewer as close to Chang and his creative process as possible, "only inches, or seconds away from digging in," says Ridolfi. He isseen talking about the uni with chickpea hozon dish at two Michelin starred Ko.
AmEx will next roll out “Sound” and“Sight” featuring influential individuals who have made a significant impact on one of the particular senses in the coming months. The series appears as branded content across the NY Timesas well as AmEx's platforms.

Several people have expressed anger over details that were reported in the interview feature, specifically over how children were cast for Jolie’s new Netflix film, “First They Killed My Father,” while other details about the making of the film have human rights activists concerned.The magazine piece reports that Jolie and her casting director “looked at orphanages, circuses, and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship.”Casting directors are described as having “set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism” in order to find the movie’s young lead.While this method was meant to get raw emotion from the children, many people are finding this “game” mean-spirited.“Cambodia went all in — closing off Battambang for days, giving the filmmakers permits to land in remote zones, providing them with 500 officials from their actual army to play the Khmer Rouge army,” the the VF article states.Brad Adams, executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division, told NY Mag’s The Cut that using officials from the Cambodian army is alarming.“To ask for permission to make a film and thereby invest in the local economy is fine, and you’re going to have to have some meetings with some government officials,” Adams told the outlet.[...] working with the Cambodian army is a no-go zone, it’s a red flag, and it’s a terrible mistake.“This is an army that is basically an occupying force of a dictatorship, it’s used to put down environmental activists — the kind of thing that she stands for is in direct contrast to what this government is,” he continued.[...] Adams told The Cut, There’s moral hazard in having any relationship or dealings with the Cambodian government.The film is based on a memoir of the same name by Loung Ung, and chronicles the death of her parents and two siblings — along with two million other Cambodians — in the Khmer Rouge Cambodian genocide.
