THE LONELY ROAD

This is an ancient tale about freedom and bondage, it tells us about how two apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary,

Once, goes the tale, the means of production were violently privatized and taken away from the many by the few.

“In letters of blood and fire”, this expropriation created a new class of homeless and landless travelers who roamed the Earth looking for work.

Predictive data analytics is just one of the many spells cast upon the city dwellers. They make their way through the comprehensive battle-space of a billion sensors and capacitors, through the haze of statistical layers and urban smartness.

WE HELP OUR CLIENTS DEFINE
AND ACHIEVE LONG-TERM GOALS

From science to real estate, from human resources to show business: we help our clients map their strengths, plan ahead, and deliver on their promises.

We apply a multidisciplinary toolkit to research and develop robust strategies. Our team relies on the methods and techniques of Journalism, Sociology, Cinema, and Software Studies.

CONTEXT

DIALOGUE

chumbo

Our stories are told in short and feature films, in reportages and interviews, in podcasts and in songs.

Our narratives happen across format, genre and channel, mixing different tones and voices to create deeper and more meaningful experiences.

We deliberately mix documentary and fiction, fact and illusion, past, present and imagined futures - like in a dream.

FLOW

We create circular flows of content that move through the internet and the street - evolving, mutating and being affected by external conditions such as location, relationships, audience insight.

chumbo

More than statistical and data analysis, our clients need useful insights about the state of their industries or field of activity.

In order to adequately plan and execute its vision, a business or institution needs to understand current and future trends, identify threats and opportunities - to reflect on how society is changing.

We provide exclusive expert insights based on field investigation, speculative design, games, scenarios, user and team-wide qualitative research.

Our main focus is on the future of media, storytelling, advertising, audience and consumer behavior, community engagement and collective empowerment.

Reports can be shaped into talks, meetings, workshops and masterclasses, audiovisual and interactive content.

DREAMS

From the turbulence of global markets to local innovations, from social conflict to hidden and disruptive cultural change, from the next big thing to the smallest ancient detail - we can provide you with the insight you need to better plan and execute your vision.

DREAMS

chumbo

21st century media can be thought of as a liquid substance.
It flows, it crashes, it disappears. Its shape is defined by whatever device or environment it happens to be in.

Media is made by and for people, places, machines.

We create recursive, multipath, multishaped, and multiplayer stories.

Our narratives are produced in alignment with the needs and goals of our clients, reinforcing their values and business cultures. They happen across format, genre, and channel, mixing different tones and voices to create deeper and more meaningful experiences.

Our stories are told in short and feature films, in reportages and interviews, in podcasts and in songs.

We deliberately mix documentary and fiction, fact and illusion, past, present and imagined futures - like in a dream.

In a dream, geography does not exist and travel is always immediate. Each scenario is adjacent to the next, contaminated and remixed by whatever is happening in other parts of the brain, in real time.

Dream communication is powerful because it operates without regard for specifics, without respect for control. It erases the distinction between a sound and its echo. It is only concerned with special effects.

On the web, social networks, print and streaming, our stories unfold in a dynamic and responsive fashion.

We create circular flows of content that move through the internet and the street - evolving, mutating and being affected by external conditions such as location, relationships, audience insight.

In the city, the cloud, the platform and the network, we ignore boundaries and travel instantaneously between text, photography, video and music.

Between symbol and meaning there shall be no distance.

Talk to us.

The lights need to be done right. The music can't be too loud, too soft, the guest list must be a diplomatic compromise between the essential and the generative.

Live, warm, uniquely designed and dedicated experiences are something people cherish and support, and remember.
