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!

For some reason this Emperor Yes track makes me want to drink beer in the sunshine – it’s got such a wide open feel, and a strong flavour of Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips.
Visually – wow! – there’s a lot going on – Chris Boyle’s effervescent imagination certainly on fine form here. Band dressed as yetis, check, animated ancient explorer maps, check, something to do with ants and a spilled fizzy drink, er, check. Also what looks like a firm nod in the direction of Studio Ghibli in some of the animation style. Continue reading “Chris Boyle – Emperor Yes-Cosmos Music Video” »
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” »
The Chinese are well know for their fiendishly detailed craft skills – which is exactly what MIE have simulated for Shanghai Motion Magic who approached them to create three new idents for Dragon TV – one of China’s biggest mainstream broadcasters.
When asked to give the look a seasonal spring refresh, they took their existing “page turning” concept and developed it further, while also embracing the year of the snake. All three idents were designed so they could be bolted together and played consecutively, to form one thirty second sequence. (which you see here, above) Continue reading “MIE – Dragon TV Spring Idents” »
