Yes its time for more summer frolics and inner city fun – the See No Evil summer special is coming to town – and this month they are featuring the quirkily-creative Moth Collective. Its not often you get to watch socially conscious animation that has such a beautiful look and feel – the visuals are really engaging and you never feel like you are being patronised… I thought the white on black section at the start of the HIAS film was a very powerful way of dealing with a very tricky subject.
‘Planet Under Pressure’ is the second film Moth Collective has produced for the Global Canopy Programme, a tropical forest think tank working to demonstrate the scientific, political and business case for safeguarding tropical forests as natural capital.
Should be a great event – so come and have a drink and a chat!
When: August 4th 2015, doors Open 7.00pm, talk Starts 7.30pm
Where: Cafe 1001 91 Brick Lane London E1 6QL – Free entry

I really wanted to share this.new project coming out of Google Labs at the moment called Deep Dream. No only is this fractal style imaging amazingly trippy to look at, but it’s been developed as part of a project that looks at neural networks. Why should we care about this? you might ask – well it’s all part of research that looks at how the human brain processes images and delivers visual recognition to us.

Well, it’s that time of year again the International Motion Graphics, Animation and Broadcast Design Awards – also known as the BassAwards have just announced their winners
As usual the quality level is high and the competition intense. I’m pleased to say that the Best Agency of 2015 (kind of a best in show award) has gone to the UK’s very own Art&Graft, winning the gold in Best TV Channel Branding with the work “Boomerang Global Rebrand”, (which dotmogo has already done a full post about) as well as two Bronzes in the Best Experimental category with “Idn Intro” and “The Walk”.
