Semi-Permanent Video and Breakdown

By General, Inspiration, Uncategorized No Comments

Every now and then in the motion graphics world, a piece comes along and sets a new benchmark for every one out there. For me, the latest one to do that is the Semi-Permanent opening sequence. From the second it starts, you’re immediately drawn in by the intensity and epic scale of the universe thats been created by Raoul Marks.

Another thing which is truly outstanding is Raoul has taken the time to do a breakdown video, giving you a sneak peak into his thought process and workflow as well as making the Astronaut 3d model for C4D available to the public.

It’s amazing to see how the motion graphics and 3D community are developing a culture of giving and sharing and it’s my hope that this will continue to grow and we will continue to push each other to do greater things.

The original video and breakdown are below together with the links and credits. Be sure to visit and thank him for his generosity.

Reaffirming Everyday Projects

By Inspiration, Uncategorized No Comments

I came across this cool talk by Ji Lee from a Creative Mornings (New York) keynote held in March 2011. Ji Lee, at the time Creative Director Google Labs, now Creative Director at Facebook.

The main takeout for me in this video is the importance of Everyday Projects and how creatives should start incorporating their personal projects into work projects.

Enjoy the keynote and I’m happy to keep the conversation going with comments so share your favourite takeout of this keynote.

Cinema4D presentations at FMX 2014

By Inspiration, Uncategorized No Comments

The FMX Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia is Europe’s most influential conference for digital entertainment where Art, Technology and Business meet. Every year, artists, specialists, scientists, producers and other key people come to FMX to network and to discuss production issues, exciting technologies and new ways of financing and distribution across the industries with an international audience.

I love live presentations and these are no exception. In these four videos, you’ll listen to Matthias Zabiegly (AixSponza), Florian Bruchhäuser (LIGA01), Oliver Meiseberg (MAXON) and John Hill (Vincent London) as they talk about production workflow, and share their invaluable knowledge.
