German illustrator Mark Gmehling has some very unusual and terribly fun 3D illustrations in his Behance portfolio. They are very well rendered and look like they would make for nice vinyl toys.

From The Dark Past, is the title of the current animation by Rafaël Rozendaal. There is a definite physical quality to the animation that almost tricks the eye into believing a camera is panning across a dimensional landscape. Be sure to click and play as well.

Via the amazingly curated and always interesting Today and Tomorrow.

“Machu Picchu Post is a short 3D film made at Supinfocom Arles in 2008 by Clement Crocq, Margaux Durand-Rival and Nicolas Novali.

This is the story of the unexpected meeting between a young peruvian boy living with his lama and a pilot from the airmail flying above the boy’s house.”

The style and animation in this short film is really expertly executed. You can learn a little more about the project here.

Hugo Arcier was trained in 3D graphic arts at the Supinfocom school (Valenciennes). His work is just bizarre but really interesting.

From the Hoop is a 3D Short directed by 3 students from Supinfocom Arles.

The story was inspired by the life of Earl Manigault, a basketball player who lost everything in drugs. Near the end of his life he dedicated his time to helping children of Harlem avoid the same fate. It was during this time that he started the “Walk Away From Drugs” tournament for kids. He died in 1998 from a heart failure.

The storyline in the actual film very non-linear and I think it is meant to be more of an abstract subjective interpretation of Manigault’s personal struggle with his inner-demons. It’s a beautiful little short though and the color and animation are really great for a student film. Impressive work. You can learn a little more about the project at the official website as well.

Sebastien LABAN emailed me today to let me know about a 3D animated short-film project he and his wife, Virginie GOYONS (why the capitalized last names [I don’t know]) have been working on in their spare time entitled, ‘Meet Meline’. They have released a trailer for the film that you can view above and in my opinion it looks amazing.

Some pretty kick ass 3d from David Lohr at the newly relaunched Science Under Fire. Super cool. Crazy how those simple forms can combine to create something so compelling.

Finally forced me to start a 3d category.
