There are very few brands more recognizable and impactful on today's cultural and technological landscape than Google. We at BGSTR were thrilled when they approached us to help with a graphics package for their brand film - "Trillions of Questions, No Easy Answers: A (home) movie about how Google Search Works". It was a massive, all-encompassing project that had us pushing the limits of what we can do, and hopefully helping to convey the bold ideas of the film.

This was such an expansive project in the best way possible. We were not limited to one particular art or animation style - but instead got to explore many different methods of communicating Google's vision.

From an Alice in Wonderland themed segment to a sequence about Deep Space One - we developed numerous infographics and explainer animations, re-created search bars, comped webpages onto live video, and used a number of other innovative techniques of visual storytelling.

Thanks to Google for this amazing collaboration, and we are looking forward to working with you more in the future!
