Vice recently interviewed Cody Wilson and took a look at the project he has undertaken to fashion parts of a semi-automatic weapon using a 3D printer. Yikes! This is extremely interesting. 3D printers kick ass. You can read more about Wilson's project in the Vice article on their website.
This new Adidas spot highlighting the Chelsea Football Club looks great. The slow motion footage immersing the players in blue paint is completely surreal. How long does it take them to clean that up? Probably not the point. The intriguing spot is the handiwork of UK agency, The Corner. Full credit list after the jump.
Every wonder how they get all those crazy effects on The Walking Dead? Want to see three minutes of the those crazy effects in one ultra succinct effects reel? Well, Stargate Studios, the production and effects company working on the wildly popular AMC series, aims to please — putting this bit of nastiness together. We also found their virtual backlot reel a pretty interesting peek behind the curtain as well.
There's something that we deeply love about the art of photo compositing. When it's done well it is a great mix of fantasy and reality. We hadn't seen much of the work from Portland-based illustration and re-touching crew, Danklife, before today. What we're seeing though we're digging. The hyper-realistic, fantastical nature of the work is what we look for in this type of work. The above illustrations were created in conjunction with Nike for last year's March Madness. The effects add to and heighten the already amazing physical nature of young ball players in today's game.
We love attention to detail. Sweating the little things, while working all the visuals and art that will go into a job, is what we're all about. One look at the work done for IR Mobile Resume, and you can see the attention to detail. Awesome. Colorcubic handled the company's branding, web design, and UI/UX and it doesn't take a wizard to see how much love went into crafting these pieces. Overall, we love just how unified and complete this entire package feels. Getting a client to hand over the keys to ALL the graphic work is the way to do it. A fresh start, big dreams and solid visual solutions. Is there anything better?
In an effort to raise awareness of bowel cancer, The Scottish government just released this nifty little song that will have you humming all day long. The Leith Agency, UK gets credit for helping get them get the word out.
This spot caught our eye for a couple of reasons. The first is because it reminds us an awful lot of The Matrix, and personally, we love those movies. The second is because of the hoops they went through to make this piece. 500 cell phones were used to create the city and sky backgrounds shown during the short animated sequence.
The commercial is for the new Pantech 6, which is a technological powerhouse (sports a 13mp camera). Animation for this segment took 170 hours and over 1600 paper characters (500 cell phones... we covered that already) to create. The spot is the brainchild of Korean firm, Mr. Romance.
