Just wanted to hit you guys with a fresh new trailer for a fresh new movie called “Rango“. Looks pretty interesting, especially with Johnny Depp lending his vocals and production by the team that brought you the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

Urban Abstract

Posted in Artwork, Film + Video, Graphic Design with tags , , , , on December 11, 2009 by bendey14

This nice little digital piece titled “Urban Abstract” comes from Musuta Ltd. design studio in Helsinki and Tokyo.  Careful, it’s easy to get lost in this beautifully executed pixel flurry.  Enjoy.

“Urban Abstract is a journey across urban space that unfolds in forty, 5 second parts. The journey, in one, two and three dimensions, is a bit like abstract surfing in which the original destination is only reached after a number of seemingly random yet linked detours occur. Points , lines, planes and other abstract elements create a journey through an Urban Abstract.
The space between things is as important as intended space, perhaps creating a fourth dimension. Meaningful shapes and purposes occur in this dimension’s reality as well. The concept of negative space has meaning here.
Nature plays a part as well. To be able to understand and differentiate what is urban one has understand what is nature.
The style of the shorts is fluid and, though seemingly random, stream into a cohesive whole. Perhaps watching them in a different order would be more like seeing the same journey from another point of view. The sound world is also very important — movement in space is sensed even if watching the shorts with eyes closed. Sounds overlap, fade, come and go.
Architectural, abstract, someway minimalist and abstract with a touch of humanity.
This feeling is reached through mixing techniques such as vectors , hand drawn lines and painting.
Urban Abstract was realized in Tokyo by a team of artists, designers and animators from Finland and Japan. Urban Abstract was created by Jopsu Ramu from Musuta Ltd, a concept, art & design -studio based in Tokyo and Helsinki.”

Pigeon: Impossible

Posted in Film + Video with tags , , , , , on November 22, 2009 by bendey14

This is a 6-minute CGI short done by writer/director Lucas Martell.  The film, “Pigeon: Impossible” took nearly 5 years to complete and the detail shows it.  This is Martell’s first attempt at CGI animation and it’s a solid performance that leaves his viewers standing in line for more.

“Walter, a rookie secret agent, is faced with a problem seldom covered in basic training: what to do when a curious pigeon gets trapped inside your multi-million dollar, government-issued nuclear briefcase.”  Read more about Martell and his film at Pigeon: Impossible.

This latest viral is absolutely hilarious.  Done by Durex and titled “Get It On”.  I love the squeaking sounds throughout the video.  I’m not sure what to say about this one…except maybe…get it on?  Be sure to check out the outtake clip.

Short Films and Viral Vids

Posted in Artwork, Commercials + Virals, Graphic Design with tags , , , , on January 12, 2009 by bendey14

Nothing is better at killing time than surfing the web and watching short films, virals, and even the occasional banned commercial.  While doing just that, I stumbled upon a sweet little creative studio put together by 3 friends all with a passion for animation and design.  It’s called 3 Legged Legs and it’s very obvious that in between working for clients, they seem to keep doing this stuff for fun.  After watching a bunch of their videos I found a couple that were    just    plain    awesome.

Ricochet:  [WARNING-  This one is pretty graphic in some parts, so if you’re not a fan of movies like Saving Private Ryan or Black Hawk Down…you might want to skip it.  And if you actually take my advice and decide to skip it…you’re totally lame.]

 

Humans:  This next one is also a little graphic, but it’s all cartoony.  Has a pretty thoughtful message too …so what’s not to love?
