A very simple and elegant painterly end sequence from Blur Studio.

Safe and Free

Gentleman Scholar recreate the gracefulness of a large humpback whale in the freedom of a forest to promote Whale and Dolphin conservation. A technical video of some before and afters of the realistic CGI process can also be found on their site.

Cymatics

No post production or VFX apparently, it’s all real. There’s an accompanying making of if you don’t believe me. Interesting results by Nigel Stanford.

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.

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.

True Detective titles

Antibody created the main title sequence for HBO’s critically acclaimed drama series True Detective. Working through our LA-based production partners, Elastic, and with compositing support from the talented crew at Breeder.

A test by us to showing parallaxing a an old photograph celebrating the queens jubilee in Bethnal Green. The photo is split into layers, digitally repainted and then placed into a frame with a 3D virtual camera.

More difficult than you would imagine to make. Rotating landscape cube.

Quayola (aka ‘dQ’) and Memo Akten through digital production outfit Nexus Interactive Arts, have created ‘Forms’, a multiscreen digital artwork commissioned by the National Media Museum for the exhibition In the Blink of an Eye: Media and Movement, which is part of the Cultural Olympiad programme.

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.

Kerala advert

Very slow pensive advert but some of the photographic shots are superb.

John Carpenter's The Ward

Titles incoporating archive stills by placing them against a plane of breaking glass. Not for the very squeamish…

Cinema Philips Film

Some serious time-freeze action going on here. My guess is a mixture of parallax, 3D mapping, plenty of wire and mannequins. (..too many people in masks..)

Stunt poetry

A study in high speed photography or clever morphing of stills using twixter plugin for After Effects.

Parallax Horse

Animated pitch using a form of parallaxing to create an extreme slow-motion effect of a horse mid-jump.
