i was watching the simpsons the other day and saw the unmistakable style of bill plympton gracing the intro’s couch gag sequence. congrats bill on both the great intro, new wife and first child on the way!
i saw this last night while watching intervention – yes, among other guilty pleasures watching other people hit rock bottom can be invigorating. i literally almost fell off my couch watching this. i actually could not believe that something like this could possibly ever make it to air. now, i have documented it for all to see in perpetuity on the interwebs.
for anyone who doesn’t know – those three odd images below the url are missing footage icons generated from either after effects or final cut pro. in other words, who ever created the final of this commercial failed to recognize these icons and proceeded to send out to broadcast. This is a pretty large slip-up from the production company who produced this work.
i imagine the icons that are missing are twitter, Facebook, and youtube – as seen on their website.
while the image i posted is of poor quality one can think – maybe i faked it? this video, also of poor quality documented the actual commercial. i did not make this up or alter the image. this is just an epic fail.
hey sylvan learning center if you ever a new company to produce your commercials – i know some people who are excellent at quality control.
We had a lot of fun working on a, animation for a new social media site PlayerGrid. They cater to parents and families with children involved in sports, providing simple applications to stay in touch with other parents and coaches with calendar updates and a unique photo album.
The video only lives on their website for now. So, please check it out!
we recently helped out n1on with vfx on a bust rhymes music video, featuring chris brown and directed by hype williams.
our section: 1:18-1:28 – busta in front of the club – and picks up and shakes it.
green screen key, modeling, animation, lighting, rendering, compositing.
i was recently turned on to a great band ‘gotye’. got hooked on his hit single with ‘kimbra’ “somebody that i used to know” – which has an awesome video. it’s very simple with one scene and two characters but it is endlessly entertaining. Not only because of how great the song is, but the visuals are well done. there’s also a little stop-motion and pixelation involved. take a look:
i heard the song a few times and i liked it. although it wasn’t until seeing a ‘walk off the earth’ cover that made me really get sucked in; purely by the fascination with their video. the entire band plays the ‘gotye’ cover with one guitar. all of them on one guitar.
while that rendition is really good, it only made me like the original song and video all the more. I think what i’m captured by is the amount of feeling that is put into the original video. the way the characters act. you can feel what they are going through. it’s very subtle but also very effective. this is lost in the cover version.
in hopes of arriving at a point, all this turned me on to gotye’s other video which are just as creative and artistic as the aforementioned – and all animations! kick ass. here they are, in order of my favorite.
being such a “cartoon modern” fan of course this video finds itself at the top.
keep on keepin’ on gotye!
