Creative Direction for the opening keynote and on-demand segments of, an annual deep dive into the future of data featuring interactive workshops, AMAs, and new product demos. This year, we transformed the keynote into MongoDB World News: fully outfitted with a bespoke set, news anchors, a press conference, newsy camera jib movements, and an animated graphics package to tie it all together. We also led the charge to concept and produce digital shorts called Brain Breaks, fun segments to break up the dense informational run of show; topics included the code to wellness (mindfulness, sleep, posture), a couple of funny guys, how to make the perfect cup of Joe, and a 60 Minutes spoof on how to fold a fitted sheet (you read it right).
