More than the Lightbulb Guy

Capturing the impact of Thomas Edison through color, animation, and archival assets.

Thomas Edison is among the most recognizable and iconic figures in human history. His invention of the light bulb is synonymous with a good idea and he was named Man of the Millenium for his extraordinary accomplishments. Everyone knows his name, but they may not be familiar with his humanitarianism and the impact he’s had on all of our lives. 522 Productions produced this video to take Edison’s image and larger-than-life persona and bring it into the modern day. We leveraged archival assets to bring Edison’s values and images to life with color, animation, and a tight and snappy script.
