The Team

Vincent Morisset, the director, and founder of AATOAA, has been working with Arcade Fire since the album Funeral was released. To create the digital experience for Just A Reflektor, Morisset worked with Aaron Koblin, the creative director. Koblin has been developing immersive digital experiences for several years now, one of our favorite examples of his work is The Johnny Cash Project and The Wilderness Downtown, another interactive film for Arcade Fire. Below is Koblin’s 2011 TEDTalk, where he talks about crowdsourcing data to create digital visualizations.
