Build a Bigger Business – Shopify / Tony Robbins

Some very nice 2D motion graphics mixed with live action to make for a pretty dynamic piece for Shopify

Supplies – Justin Timberlake

Rodeo FX delivered over 100 visual effects shots for Dave Meyers dystopian vision of Justin Timberlakes Supplies”.

Art Directed by Erik Gagnon.

There will be haters – Adidas

A great rant using big named players shot on greenscreen and collaged with lots of GFX.

Japan Football title

Looks to me like a football title for Japanese or Korean channel.

The Punisher – Titles

Yest another great title from Patrick Claire and his colleagues at Elastic for the Netflix TV series.

Audi – Speed of Light

Film on the history and future of Audi’s light technology. Lots of motion graphics and trapcode plugins.

Man Meets Woman

A personal project from Terrence Ginja Martinho based on the book “Man Meets Woman.”

The Endless Scare

Great title sequence from “The Drawing Room” apparently about the U.S. government’s systematic persecution of gay and lesbian State Department employees during the Cold War.

Nike – Webelieveinthepoweroflove

Chaotic spot for Tiscis sportswear collaboration with Nike called NikeLab x RT.

Directed by JN director Luca Finotti

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.

Wilfred – Station idents

Really cool idents from Impactist, based in Portland Oregan

Don’t blink

Apple launches their iPhone 7 and new watch with a short 107 second summary of their conference in this video. It’s as simplistic as you’d expect from an Apple video, but always done very well. You can find out more about it’s cleverness here.

William Hill

Often seen as part bumpers during football matches these William Hill adverts combine live action and lots of different styles but it’s the comic strip overlays that appeal most to me.

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.

The Americans – Titles

Been meaning to post this one for a while. It’s from Elastic TV. A great mix of the banal and the political.

Fuel Up For Battle: The Detective

Here is another interesting video, spy stuff. Lots of overlays and tracking footage and data gives it that high-tech espionage look. By First born.

Crossroads

Looks like Rubicon but with a figure orchestrating. Another animation from Marcus Eckert.

Scarlet One Weekend Off

Quirky German animation with George Melieres overtones. Direction and animation: Jeroen Houben & Jurjen Versteeg.

Enemy of the State

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

Les Bleus De Ramville

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

John Baldessari

A short history of this artist told by Tom Waits in a quite comical montaged manner

Syria: The Real Mr & Mrs Assad

We created a large canvas here for Dispatches in order to connect all the different members in a complex system. The animation is made up of moves highlighting the important individuals. The styling is rough and ready conveying the underground espionage within Syria.

Green-screen presenter

Very good use of presenter in a studio cut with very stylised graphics. Design & Animation: Oz Smith
Creative Director: Greg Millar for BBC sport.

Heart of rebel

Conceptual trailer for female missionary who left American Civil war ravaged Virginia for China. Well crafted trailer.

Move

I guess these guys got in before airmiles added their fees & taxes. Great little sequence which must have been months in the planning.

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.

Dustin Hoffman – Sky Atlantic

Just lovely simple advert with actor, one camera and the sunlight. Like the brashness of the jump cuts.

BMW – Series One

Technical graphics and kaleidoscopic animation provide a data heavy car commercial.

Dexter

Dexter’s titles include extreme close-ups to get a dramatic feeling of intensity.

True Blood titles

Classic Title sequence for True Blood. Using a mixture of archive and shot footage with a edgy heavily graded look. Thanks, Bolex.

Edwardian Britain: Suffragette

[flowplayer src=’http://trainordavies.com/sketchpad/video/edwardianSuffragette2.mp4′ width=660 height=371 splash=’http://td-sketchpad.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/suffragette.jpg’]

We are most proud of managing to create an absorbing sequence which lasted well over a minute of tv time using just one photograph.
