I love this MTV bumper from illustrator James Jarvis and animator Richard Kenworthy. I can’t find any info on the project, but it seems so consistent with how so many skate spots are filmed (as far as angles and movement) that I’m guessing there was some reference footage that may have been used for rotoscoping or timing. Either way, it’s awesome.

Strong piece for Ronald McDonald Charities via DDB Chicago, produced by Thornberg & Forester. The message is powerful, and the charity is important. T&F did an outstanding job of creating a beautiful animated spot that doesn’t overwhelm the story or goal of the initiative.

With the ambitious goal of raising $1 million by December 31, 2012, the Charity has launched a campaign using innovative multimedia strategies to unite people around its cause, and help them understand the impact its family-centered programs have on improving the health and wellbeing of children and compel them to donate. If you believe in the cause and feel like making donations, you can find more info at http://www.rmhc.org.

Not really sure why I never thought to post this before as the author is a close friend and mentor of mine, but here is stunning VFX and compositing piece created by Ognian Bozikov with audio by Boulder’s Coupe Studios. I was fortunate enough to be able to see this develop over the course of many months but the VFX breakdown still blows my mind in the complexity of what was involved to bring this all together. Enjoy.

 

Growing up as huge fan of the James Bond movies, I was of course excited with the release of the latest installment in the Daniel Craig world of Bond. While the discussion of the movie is a whole other topic, I was intrigued to find that this was the first 007 movie to incorporate CG shots into the post and production workflow. In my mind it was pretty darn seamless and personally cannot wait to see more behind the scenes from Skyfall.
