Empire state of mind

September 19, 2010

Colin Hesterly is a very talented individual who will definitely go places if his work to date is anything to go by. Still studying in The Florida his work ranges from animation, motion graphics to photography. He’s got a cinematic eye and there’s a real commercial flavour to all his work.

Nice stuff here.

August 27, 2010

Invader, an artist from The France is most famous for putting space invader characters in urban locations. Now he’s turned his hand to another 80’s phenomenon the Rubik’s cube.

Tarp surfing

August 23, 2010

I’ve been a bit rubbish recently (see what i did there) and not posted as much as I should. Soz. Anyway Tarp surfing was one of those things I meant to put up here but just forgot. But as it’s doing the rounds again and because it’s pretty cool I’ve posted it anyways. If you didn’t see it the first time round enjoy.

Star wars Uncut

August 20, 2010

Star Wars Uncut is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating new and fun experiences on the web.

Working as a developer at Vimeo, Casey became interested in using the internet as a tool for crowdsourcing user content.

Star Wars Uncut is the product of 2 years of hard work for Casey who wanted to test the appetite for creating a crowd sourced movie.

Rather than create a film from scratch Casey broke the first Star Wars film down into 15 second segments and asked the general public to make their own favourite segment of the  film. The results are in and the final edit is now available to view online.

If you love Be kind Rewind you’ll love this. Very lo-fi but none the less entertaining.

Pixarrrrr

August 19, 2010

Pixar are renowned for making fantastic, human interest full length animation films. And preceding a Pixar film has always been a short movie, often showcasing the latest visual techniques Pixar have developed or characters they want to introduce us to.

Before Toy Story 3 filled the screen and made me want to cry, we were shown the amazing little film called Day & Night ( and no before you ask it’s not the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz debacle) in fact this was a sweet tale of two characters that find love and friendship. Typically Pixar, beautifully made.

Check it out here.

If like me, you enjoy a good bit of stationery. Then you’ll love the work of Jung Von Matt Ag to promote the mobile phone horror flick 13th street. You’ve got to see the letter tear. Gory stuff here.

What’s your secret?

April 28, 2010

50 people one question is a fantastic website/video project where the creators have gone out onto the streets of New York and asked 50 people one simple question (funny that) What’s your secret?

Boring, I hear you say, but the results are strangely intriguing and mesmerizing. The answers range from the ridiculous to the heartfelt and scary the end result makes for compelling viewing. Check out the master film and the four other they have created here.

Old stuff is rubbish

More 3D stuff.

3D in 2D

April 12, 2010

Probably the most incredible thing you’ll see……today.

If you’re first thought when looking at the painting above by Alexa Meade is “What’s so incredible about this?” Then like me you probably thought they were just paintings of people done on a photo. But if that were the case the paintings would be pretty dull? What makes Alexa Meade’s technique so interesting is that rather than painting on a flat surface to make it look 3 dimensional, she paints real 3D surfaces to make them look like paintings. Got it? Each photographic portrait is actually a real person painted to look like a flat painting. Mad but brilliant. Check her daubs out here.

Adam bomb

April 9, 2010

John Pound is an incredible comic book artist who is probably most famous worldwide for his illustrations that adorned The Garbage Pail Kids stickers and cards in the 80’s. You used to collect the cards by buying Topps chewing gum and were greeted with such fab illustrations as Adam Bomb and Drew Blood. You can view this bit of nostalgia here.
