Captimax Alstrom

Microfibre technology told through CGI animation

Consumer Segmentation Project

Really ecletic mix of styles in these series of animations from Dutch firm PlusOne.

The names of the consumer brands have been removed but all the more intriging.

Organic Machines

Beautifully crafted  title sequence by Beijing visual designer Zaoeyo (aka Xiaolin Zeng, aka Mike Zeng) detailing insects constructed with glassy, organic materials.

Anonimo

So this is how they make Swiss/Italian watches! A really nice animation playing on scale from Parallel. Also a great piece of sound design from Alexandre Poirier which really adds to the whole atmosphere.

Ultimate Fighter

One of a series of promos for Ultimate Fighter on Fox using rapid editing and splashes of hand-drawn type and scratched elements. By State Design.

A great piece of work using many visual/shooting styles. Great voice-over script and sound design.

Production Company – The Sweet Shop
Director – SEGA

Prophets of Science Fiction

Ridley Scott’s promo for “Prophets of Science Fiction” has been brought to life by Prologue by tracking the graphics to the table top, transitioning to the CGI versions of his notes, in a techy intricate manner.

Hide

Motion designer Christian Stangl has put this music video together for Strange Freedom´s track “Hide“ by means of thousands of single microscopic photographies, merged together, creating a dramatic timelapse scenario.

Ministry of Sound Headphone

Headphone systems might seem pretty simple to you and I but not if you look at this excellent animation from Paul Clements.

Marco Polo titles

Mill+ co-director Ben Smith and co-director Bryce Wymer teamed up with Netflix to create the title sequence for Marco Polo and most appears to be achieved on camera but with a lot of planning.

Crossbones Main Title (Director’s Cut)

Slight alteration to the aired version as the cross was taken off. Short and simple but nice idea with the flag transition. By Imaginary Forces.

Manhattan – Main Title

Simple idea of diagrams on paper done very well in true Imaginary Forces style, similar in fashion to their popular Rubicon title.

Sky HD “Fragments”

Parallax used to the highest degree to create these idents by Brothers & Sisters. Although looking like slowed down footage, stills were placed within a 3D environment, composited with animated details and moved with a virtual camera.

Eva Film titles

Titles by Dvein, fromthe Spanish film director Kike Maíllo’s retro-futuristic sci-fi thriller.

Beautiful abstract film celebrating the OFFF festival of design, photography and motion

A History of the title sequence

A nicely shot and animated homage to the individuals who have produced landmark titles for features in the past.

Historia branding

Idents and branding for the French History channel. Very subtle but with some very nice clever features to it, especially with the show times towards the end.

Enemy of the State

An old title sequence now but still quite memorable. By yU+co

Elementry title

Prologue piece together a clever device shooting close-ups with a muted palette and short depth of field. The series is a modern take on Sherlock Holmes by CBS starring Lucy Liu as Watson. I know, right.

Les Bleus De Ramville

Nice title sequence using interesting motion on hockey notation and jump cut editing

The carpenter

Nice bit of tracking and great cinematography but still slightly tongue in cheek – I think?

directed / edited / vfx – Dimitris Ladopoulos, Spiros Rasidakis

Short Depth of Field

A simple technique to use on photographs, some with poorer resolution to add a little more mystery to a rostrum move.

Documents with short DOF

These documents have been treated in a 3D program to suggest they have been shot with short depth of field and textured and graded to give that warm elegantly lit appearance.

The playground fight

What appears to be a great piece of motion capture was actually created using stills which were then applied to 3D models of human heads to create the idea of cameras moving around frozen action.

Bleeding Images

We’ve experimenting with techniques to bleed through images, either from one to another to fade in an image, giving it a natural, organic introduction.

Stills Move

Very simple move on stills, replicating a rostrum move, but we’ve added a more complex 3D virtual camera, a tighter depth of field, a table setting with lighting and a glossy reflection to the photographs.

Renaissance Remastered

By mapping a painting in extremely high photographic detail, stitching the images and using a proxy-morphing technique, we were able to create incredibly large zooms to square centimetre sections, all in HD for Renaissance Remastered on BBC2.

A title we shot some years ago in my house in Wandsworth doubling as a US government office in the 30’s. We used a boroscope lens which was about a foot in length attached to a DigiBeta camera to get in to see that dust.
