An inspiring video from Chris Harmon that illustrates just how dependent we truly are on oil. Chris does a great job telling his story visually while keeping it very informative . I really like the overall tone and colors used. Chris nailed the crude oil feel while still keeping it very clean looking.
So I’ve only been to Coachella once, and to this day it continues to be my best festival experience. This year though, Intel and Vice got together via their Creators Project, to encourage collaboration between the brightest of artists, geniuses and designers and to create an experience that would enhance the live performances and blow people’s minds. This makes me GREEN WITH ENVY to not have witnessed the spectacle live.
Spend some time on the website—all the artists are ridiculous. and inspiring enough to make your week full of magic.
Korean-based Studio Shelter created a fun Lego-based stop-motion short which brings human personalities to the blocks of color. This short tells the story of a happy Lego world that is quickly overrun with chaos and slowly drained of it’s color.
Spoiler alert: Lego bricks humping. Yeah, you heard me.
I have no capacity for motion design/animation so I’ve naturally got mad respect for those who do. Joel Lazano is a freelance designer/animator hailing from Barcelona who has a nice, slick vintage design inspired style that translates super well to animation. No official real, so enjoy these four clips from his portfolio!
A great video showcasing numerous title screens from history. If you are digging this video, you should definitely check out their website www.artofthetitle.com. It’s chock full of inspiring title design videos.
Great black + white animation from Adam Gault that brings visuals to honest Abe’s Gettysburg Address. I love the visual style of this piece, each scene is very well done and the buffalo just kill it for me. Check out Adam’s professional portfolio here.
I’m not even going to pretend to be enough of a geek to understand how this is done, but I do have an enormous amount of respect for anyone that can program the laws of physics, fluid dynamics, and materials science into a computer program. The ramifications for the motion graphics and video game industry (assuming consoles can handle the intense processing going on) are pretty enormous with this kind of control and granularity. Even if you’re not a total dork though, you can still enjoy it if you have a thing for flying digital goo-rabbits.
I saw the title of this on Vimeo and first thought it was going to be a “Starwars Kid” type video of some dude, bored, playing with his beloved childhood toy in his mom’s basement. Half of that is true. Patrick Boivin is talented stop motion animator who created this well thought out short film showing what life would be like with a pet At-At. Totally cool concept and very well executed. I mean, even “Jabba the Poo” makes an appearance! Check out his other awesome stop motion work on Vimeo. And yes, he has a Michael Jackson vs. Mr. Bean dance off video. Shamone!
