Black Dynamite Trailer

They did an amazing job creating the look of 1970s films. I wonder if they used the same stock or used something like Magic Bullet Looks? They probably had an expert with a Divinci System color grade it.

It has been a while since I've been totally blown away by something but this piece is amazing! Waldemar Borth sent me some links from his work and this one absolutely knocked my socks off. It was done before Waldemar joined the company, but it looks like he's joined an amazing company.

Flashback Friday: Ruby - Kaiser Chiefs (2006)

Yes, I realize it's Thursday but I don't think I'll be updating the site tomorrow!

I LOVE this song and LOVE Kaiser Chiefs. I saw them at Lollapalooza 09 and I was blown away. Best show by far and I was up close. They had so much energy in 90° heat and rain. I had never seen the video for Ruby until today. They just don't play good music videos here and I have cheap cable, so all I ever see is Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

Mathematic partnered with a company called Stink UK and Stylewar of Sweden to create this amazing piece of art for Kaiser Chiefs. It was shot on greenscreen and a miniature city builds around the band. It's a masterpiece for sure!

Final Fantasy XIII Game Trailer

Dazzling as usual, the team behind the Final Fantasy series does not disappoint with lucky #13.... aside from the US version not available until April or so! It already has sold over 1.5 million units in Japan within the first four days of its release last week.

Guess it's time for me to bite the bullet and finally purchase a PS3.

Neutra Face : An Ode On A Typeface (A Bearded Poker Face Parody)

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

Thought about Futura but the em space was to wide
not even when condensed,believe me i've already tried
Gill sans the G is wack when it's in lowercase
Avante Garde you make me hard but like Helvetica you've been played

Trapcode Test - Adam Wozniak

This is just pretty.

Sound/Vis Test from Adam Wozniak on Vimeo.

After Effects.
Broadcast 2000.


Colorama - Makeover

Colorama - Makeover from Upper First on Vimeo.

Client: Colorama
Agency: McCann Malmo
Direction: Upper First
Director of Photography: Keith Loutit
Production: Upper First
Sound design: Kungen & Hertigen
Year: 2009

The idea is based on a technique called tilt-shift, combined with time-lapse (developed by Keith Loutit). It makes reality appear as a miniature model moving with a stop-motion flow. The thought is to create a visually interesting expression that give the audience something out of the ordinary, while at the same time providing a good overview of events. We would shoot from a high angle using specially developed lenses with a short depth of field. The fact that the world appears to be miniature makes the viewer think ”is it for real or not”. It is hard to tear your eyes from the images, something that works well for our purpose.

A gigantic hand will appear in the middle of events helping the workers to get the house ready for summer. It will light the barbeque with a magnifying glass for example. The idea is to create a visually absurd situation using displacement of scale between the people in frame and the giant hand. It is meant to underline the contrast of small and big, where the hand symbolizes the consumers ability to effect the environment and in the extension his or her own environment. Through time-lapse we’ll reinforce the ”before and after” scenario as you’ll be able to see small changes appear quickly. The film will start in a winter worn backyard and in 30 seconds evolve to a wonderful summer barbeque.

Ataque de Pánico! (Panic Attack!) 2009

Giant robots invades Montevideo! A short movie directed and animated by Fede Alvarez on a shoestring budget of only several hundred dollars. (Probably not factoring in his actual time to make this...) Hollywood quickly took notice and offered him a bigger budget.


"Alvarez ended up signing with CAA, Anonymous Content and attorney Karl Austen the week before Thanksgiving and entered immediate talks with Ghost House after bonding with its principals, which include director Sam Raimi."
