We recently worked with Moxie Communications to promote a new product called 'Little Sun'. The idea behind little sun is a "global project addressing the need for light in a sustainable way that benefits communities without electricity, creates local jobs, and generates local profits." To shed some light on this initiative we did a flash mob outside the TSB Arena in Wellington, just after the Doctor Who symphony spectacular had finished! Together with Moxie Communications we performed a short flash mob piece using Highly Flammable characters and the Little Sun product, along with volunteers...
