  • Matthew Seely Animation Reel 2018

    by / December 3, 2018 /   Some fairly solid work from Portland animator, Matthew Seely. His 2018 reel spans some solid animation work and styles. We were really liking the classic feel of the work he presented and the fact that Seely seems to be more of what we would think of as a classic animator—no mo-graph, just solid animation work. Don't get us wrong, we love motion graphics big time, but it is nice to see[Read More]

  • Roundhouse x Adidas Originals x Utility Crossbody Bag

    by / September 25, 2018 / The thing we found fairly interesting about this short bit of media work Roundhouse did for Adidas is the unique format of the video. Very street coupled with a very low-key feel. We imagine this was a spot designed for social media, again given the odd aspect ratio. We really dig the immediacy of this 15 second piece, though. To us, that is the power of advertising in today's economy. So much m[Read More]
