I was at a meeting at multi discipline powerhouse Territory the other day and conversation got round to the work they have done for a couple of recent mega films – Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty.
They are usually commissioned for all sorts of interesting types of work – websites, iOS apps, channel idents, game trailers and print design. However I was particularly interested in the area of animating screens and projections for movies. It’s definitely an area that adds a lot of realism to the movie experience, and always leaves me wanting to have the same experience in my everyday life, but somehow my car HUD just isn’t the same… Continue reading “Territory – Prometheus & Zero Dark Thirty graphics” »
Following the stupendously good Playgrounds Fest 2012 titles, Jordi Pagès was invited to create the main titles for the Sci-fi Fest 2013 held at the BFI Imax in London.
The brief from the festival organisers was “Sci-fi is born here”. Armed with that short simple sentence and references to several iconic films from the genre like Alien and E.T and his love of submarine imagery, Jordi set to work. Continue reading “Jordi Pages – Sci Fi London 2013 Titles” »
RKCR Y&R team up with Red Bee media and The Mill with director Anthony Dickenson to create the new BBC promo using archived BBC footage
The BBC is one of the world’s most iconic brands and, this is a sort of feel-good piece showing their heritage and the fact that they are forward looking as well.

However as soon as you look at the list of credits on this job you can see that it was a lot more involved than sticking an editor in a room armed with their trusty After Effects… Continue reading “The Mill – BBC – Where Next? promo” »
Here’s an intriguing Daft Punk-esque title sequence for Formula 1 Magazine show for French channel Canal+, by Devilfish.
A nice mixture of live action shot in house at Studio Fortynine, and CG effects. This sequence has a very mysterious feel to it – with it’s abstract shapes and black background. I think, if you didn’t have the familiar bee like buzzing of formula one cars in the background, it could easily be a promo for the next Ministry compilation or something.

I was recently approached by Pryce Duncalf – head Honcho of animation and VFX studio Nimble Gimbal about his latest 3D project for a Discovery show called Swimming With Monsters produced by Spun Gold.
I don’t know about you, but I always tend to take it for granted that 3D animators are knocking out technically accurate 3D animals of various sorts all the time with the myriad of templates available. However after talking to Pryce, I realised that it wasn’t as simple as that! Continue reading “Nimble Gimbal – Swimming With Monsters 3D animation” »
