Ok – time for a bit of beautiful slow-mo Sci Fi animation. Get your good speakers plugged in, hit full screen and treat yourself to what could be star clusters or a microscopic look at your brain. Either way – it’s beautiful and very tastefully executed. I think this is the look and feel of my perfect video game – everything is so lush that I wanted to climb inside.

Writing with a remit to showcase solely UK-based motion graphics and animation can be restrictive and sometimes it’s good to take a trip off-shore. At dotmogo we write about the UK as we want to try and connect the community, encourage collaboration and showcase our brilliant work.

At Dotmogo, as well as showcasing top work from companies out there, we actively look for interesting self-initiated projects from the freelance community. Recently we came across this great piece by Jordi Pages called ‘Ments’. It reminded me of a previous piece we featured, entitled ‘Krak’ by Joan Masoliver, and funnily enough when we followed it up we find out that Jordi and Joan are flat-mates!
Jordi has been working as a 3D designer with Seeper for the past few years and explained that he wanted to try something that was free from the constraints of architectural mapping. He explains “I felt the urge to create something that didn’t have to work on a particular surface, the grading wasn’t conditioned by the projectors brightness, or even choosing the camera angle.” Continue reading “‘Ments’ Experimental Animation by Jordi Pages” »
As soon as I saw this inventive and staunchly unncommercial video I thought of Gunther Von Hagen’s amazing Bodyworlds exhibition – where he slices up real bodies in crossections. In this case I think it’s a bit more figurative than literal and we get a look into a bust of SiBegg’s head. Done as a collaboration between Atyp & Si Begg to promote his latest album – it was produced as a result of a brief based on the story of a jazz drummer who had tourette’s syndrome. (I challenge any advertising agency to use that as a starter for one of their briefs…)
Regular readers will know that we mainly post about work originating from the UK – partly because there is so much talent in the UK and partly because there are other blogs that serve all the other countries so well. Having said that every so often a film comes along that we get so excited about, that we have to share it anyway. Andrew Huang’s “Solipsist” is a weird marriage between film and fine art – it has three distinct movements, but no clear narrative.
Personally I love the use, or appearance, of all these organic elements – sand, feathers, material, water, powder etc which are tightly controlled by software and editing technology. After seeing the making of film, I was amazed at how low-tech a lot of it was – but I guess that helps with the organic feel. Although I admit to not knowing what was going on most of the time, I was totally captivated each time I saw it (which was many…) Continue reading “Andrew Huang – Solipsist experimental short” »
