Air New Zealand has a new in-flight safety video – Air All Blacks – which celebrates and supports the All Blacks rugby team. And, of course, shares important in-flight safety information.
Team members and staff, as well as a celebrity or two, are featured alongside crew members in the video, which takes place in the headquarters of an imaginary new airline – Air All Blacks – right when ideas for the airline’s first safety video are being discussed.
The release of Air All Blacks marks the ten-year anniversary of the airline’s groundbreaking and unique take on safety videos.
Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new in-flight safety video, which not only reminds passengers of the safety procedures to be mindful of, but takes viewers on a panoramic journey across Singapore.
In the video, passengers follow the Singapore Girl as she travels to landmarks such as Boat Quay, The Intan Peranakan Home Museum, River Safari, Haji Lane, Adventure Cove Waterpark, Henderson Waves, Capitol Theatre and Gardens by the Bay.
Given the wacky one-upmanship airlines are into these days with their safety videos, it’s refreshing to see one airline resort to a cool use of art and animation.
KLM called on the Delft Blue artists to help make a new safety video that will be shown on intercontinental flights starting November 1.
To make the film the safety instructions were translated into a series of Delft Blue-style illustrations, which were sent to a digital animator, who turned them into the series of images that would end up in the animated video. Those images were painted onto more than a thousand Delft Blue tiles and photographed using the stop the stop-motion technique to create the video.
This short film shows that process.
KLM has a long history with the Delft Blue design. Since 1952 the airline has been giving out miniature Delftware houses to World Business Class passengers on intercontinental flights.
The Delft Blue miniature houses are copies of real houses from throughout the Netherlands and the collection now includes 96 models.
