Coldplay - Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

It's likely that you'll hear this song a million times this summer but the music video is pretty cool... stop motion and graffiti. It does look a little like Chris Martin has Tourettes but it's a fun and colorful video.

Inspirations: Webby Edition: 2011 Webby Award in Animation to "Do You Know What Nano Means?"

2011 Webby Award for Animation in the Online Film & Video Category: "Do You Know What Nano Means?" for Wonderville

Artist: Daniel Gies

"Nano may mean small, very small, but when it comes to making your body work it is big, very big. If your fingernail is about one millimeter thick, and a nanometer is one millionth of a millimeter, you can imagine that there are a lot of nanomaterials making up that small space."

Basic Head rotations using 3D Layers, Distortion Mesh & Expressions in After Effects

"This is a really quick overview of one method to approach head rotations and Blink animations. It is not a definitive method, but if your character design suites the process it can be quite effective.

I just skim over the expressions and property linking so if you need a more detailed overview of linking sliders to layer attributes check out my earlier tutorial on Using Sliders."

Flashback Friday: ""CNN" News Network Motion Graphic circa 1991" by Robert Lyons

"CNN" News Network Motion Graphic. Read the description: (Should be titled "Don't Complain About Renders")

"Produced in 1991 at R. Greenberg Associates in NYC, by Anezka Sabek, this CNN logo with the (not included) James Earl Jones voice-over was used for the next 7-8 years as the station identification. I was hired as technical director to shoot this to 35mm film on their Oxberry camera. It may not look like it, but this five seconds of film, after all the tests were completed, took almost 18 hours to shoot and involved over 100 separate exposures on the film including slit-scans and strobes of each piece as it flies in. I saved the optical exposure sheets that I drew up for this job because they were among the most complicated I had ever done."
