This is some inspirational story telling and graphic work. Not certain of the technique used..feels like the C4D motion capture tool. Definitely some paint brush work done to achieve that great texture on the characters.
Giant Ant produced this animation for the Tom’s company. It’s a brief re-telling of their journey and brand mission. Giving a pair of shoes to the less fortunate around the globe. I originally saw the is piece floating through the Motionographer site. One of my favorite past times.
Deep on the 32nd floor of Viacom’s Times Square Headquarters, Slanted Studios and Hard Work Party have teamed up with Viacom Catalyst again to bring the future of exhibition interaction to the present. Designed to tell the history of Viacom, this combination of real-world artifacts and digital animation creates an experience unlike normal touchscreens or museum displays. Part diorama, part deep-dive interactive, the History of Viacom blends the physical and the digital like never before.
History of Viacom pairs a transparent 84” touchscreen with twenty dioramas to highlight key moments from Viacom’s 45 year history. Each diorama features custom 3D-printed models, addressable LED lighting and bespoke motion graphics. The touchscreens remain opaque in their attract mode, only revealing the artifact when touched by the user. Each of the dioramas features a unique object and a unique digital story. For instance, touching the “Birth of MTV” display reveals the iconic MTV Moon Man from the station’s launch, while the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” installation features a maquette sashaying under dancing lights.
The installation is coded with custom software designed for flexibility. The totally modular system can change exhibits on the fly, allowing Viacom to add new artifacts and new animations as needed. This system, its software and the transparent touchscreen all mark technology firsts for Slanted Studios, which has expanded beyond its animation roots to tackle innovative interactive projects that push the boundaries of technological sophistication.
Quick take: As a former Viacom employee myself is feeling like apart of my very own working history. I’ll definitely view this installation one day and would recommend others do the same.
Seems to be a developing theme today with my daily inspirations.
That theme…dancing! Maybe I’m in a jolly mood. LOL
It’s been a while since posting something inspiring in the VFX realm.
Until Violet Sands “No Matter What” video created by Dress Code. I’ve always been of fan of the saying less is more, especially in the vain of design.
Dress Code the production company who piece this video together achieved this daunting task.
One of my top artist to watch “RuffMercy” . His work is eclectic.
Blurb about the video from the Artist
Apparently this was meant to be on EARL’S ‘I DONT LIKE SHIT…’ album but didnt make it at the time due to sample clearance issues. It was meant to come after the track ‘FAUCET’ my favourite from the project. Last year i started drawing up ideas in a sketchbook what a video for that might look like but as was a self initiated project i shelved it to pay the rent. When the chance came along to make a video for this track i jumped at the chance. The idea here isn’t the same as the one i have worked out for FAUCET… hopefully i’ll get around to making that too.
This is one of new favorites of this year. The visual tone reminds me of some old Hitchcock films. Great staging.
“A trip through an electric desert, Dry Lights unfolds in an imagined environment of cacti and canyons, moving from hidden caves to lonely cliffs along pulsating rivers of light.
This experimental film lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes. Like an imaginary city flickering in the dark, the lights beacon fragments of vague memories – faded moments, experiences, and topographies. A world in an erratic state of flux that seems to evade any grasp of clear control plays host to constantly alternating physical and mental landscapes. Moving without a destination in the dead hours of night, mesmerising, intermittent apparitions illuminate their surroundings, allowing personal narratives to breed.
Rising to the technical challenge of creating the foundation for this full 3D film almost entirely on my own, I partnered with composer Thomas Vaquié to set the stage for a singular universe to emerge.”
not a Coldplay fan, but this music is pretty cool. Nice VFX comps.
