It’s not often we post material that does not originate from a professional studio or artist – however the effect that Rhett Le Compte achieves with the app called Face Swap Live is quite startling. Continue reading “Face Swap Live – We Are The World” »

“Sometimes you need to let go of who you are in order to move forward” – this was the thinking behind this wonderfully quirky music video hand drawn and animated by Mr & Mrs director/animator Nina Pfeifenberger.

Here’s a special post showcasing the Gold winners of this motion graphics, animation and broadcast design awards. That’s not to say that there wasn’t a lot of other very interesting work to see from around the globe, in those that did not win. The best thing to do is go to the Bassawards website winner’s page and have a look at as many of the other pieces as you can.

Another day, another new studio to dotmogo – how many of you that we don’t know about out there…? This time round we were very happy that DesignStudio got in touch – set up about five years ago by Ben Wright and Paul Stafford and in the business of motion graphics, animation and print.
For their first send-in they gave us “Hachinoko”, in collaboration with Jack Featherstone – a darkly humourous music video for electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco & German house legend, Roman Flügel. Continue reading “DesignStudio – Hachinoko-Video for Simian Mobile Disco & Romain Flügel” »
