The Adventures of Tintin is about an intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high-stakes adventure. The site weaves film animation into the navigation, placing users in the cockpit of a propeller plane and soaring to exotic locales from the film. With each destination, users are treated to a brief scene from the film before enjoying a suite of games, trailers, photos, and links to mobile content. Character dialogue hotspots, filmmaker interviews with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson and a score by John Williams round out this truly cinematic experience.
Working with the studio and filmmakers, it was clear that the heart of The Adventures of Tintin rests in its characters and in the thrill and wonder of exploration. Together, my team and I envisioned a fully immersive site that leverages the film’s action sequences and spirit of adventure. Following our initial brainstorm, we sketched out a concept around ships and automobiles traveling the globe. After comping out several interior pages and receiving feedback from the studio, my team and I decided to bring these elements to life by throwing users literally into the cockpit of an airplane with Tintin as they traveled to each region of the globe to discover the content within the site’s internal pages.
