a52: Carnivale

Carnivale is one of the coolest title sequences I've seen in a while, and it's not for the titles. It zooms around some tarot cards, which suddenly move in 3D space, and then into old footage from Germany, the KKK, the Great Depression.

Incidently, a guy I dated when I was 19 did a tarot card reading for me and all I can remember was that he said I'd have a difficult childbirth. I just laughed it off because I never planned to have a kid.... guess what! Eleven years later I have a baby and had to spend 11 weeks in the hospital before she was born. Maybe he did know what he was doing.

Check out the video. Very cool. There's a link in the upper left called Work and you can see their other work. Nice stuff.

Editors Note: Here is an article on the making of Carnivale. I think it will answer all of your questions.

The video link has been updated too. Drives me nuts when webmasters redo their sites and leave dead links. A52 redid their site entirely in flash so that you can not link to individual pages.... hence, I linked to another site. Enjoy.

Van Helsing: Monsters, Magic, and Macs

Van Helsing: Monsters, Magic, and Macs is a 10 minute documentary on how a major effect - the Frankenstein monster and an angry mob of villagers - came together in After Effects. Industrial Light Magic's Todd Vaziri shows you some amazing work.

Now let's see how much bandwidth this guy has ;-)



More of those crazy roto people - this time created for the Jumbotron display in Times Square. Winterfresh:2004 is very cool, dynamic stuff. They shot the live action on a sound stage, used some pretty impressive camera moves in AE and some of my favorite Trapcode suite of plug-ins (and I do love those Trapcode plug-ins!)
