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” »
This month at See No Evil they have the immensely talented Analog Studio. They are a creative visual effects studio based in London producing commercials, music videos, short films and web content. I’ve put a small example of their work above – their recent exploding room for Citizen watches. They produce original content and work together with directors and animators on unique ideas for film and television – and have been featured here a few times on dotmogo. (UKTV Watch idents, CBS Chellozone rebrand and Discovery SCi , to name a few…)
Between them, they have been awarded a VES, Bafta, RTS, Promax BDA Gold and had work nominated for an Emmy, RTS, D&AD - so they definitely know what they’re talking about!
As usual it’s FREE and there are great prizes to win courtesy of their friends at Stash Magazine.
So get down to SNE where you can meet some liked minded creative people, and have some fun in the process!

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” »
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” »
ModernEye are a new motion design and VFX agency fresh on the UK scene in the last 6 months, a collaboration between directors Frederic Bonpapa and Jon Uriarte. Their introductory project, ‘A Twirling Day‘ is a short film set in a harsh but minimalist environment with a single, silent character.
With 10 years of experience working in the VFX industry in Paris it is an exciting debut for the duo, with a second film called ‘Light Motif‘ now also in production. I caught up with them to talk about their first film, to find out a little about their inspiration and process… Continue reading “ModernEye – ‘A Twirling Day’ film & Interview” »
