They say you need to know how to do ‘everything’ these days to fit into the current creative job market, especially on a global scale. Whether or not you actually believe or buy into that bullshit is probably left to your own personal experience. Talent finds a way to shine regardless of the medium. Taking all of that into account, Sebastian Onufszak is a creative of the times. He practically can do everything and is pretty damn good at all of it too. The even crazier thing is that he keeps getting better at just about everything he is doing and you can see that in his updated portfolio.

Powerhouse motion studio Buck relaunched last week with some spectacular new work. We spent nearly an hour last week just discussing and trying to figure out how they produced the above piece produced for Good Books. They are a huge source of inspiration to a lot of studios right now and have consistently cranked out stellar work.

…on a side note I apologize for the lack of posts lately. We are currently working on a big merger with our production studio and it’s been a little crazy lately on the ‘work’ side of things. I promise to get the ‘blog’ side back in business this week.

I’ve been insanely impressed by the fledgling motion studio Diestro in the past few months. They literally kicked the door down when they first posted their portfolio and they are elevating their broadcast work to that rare echelon that might daringly be described as ‘art’. Their recent update is a testament to that statement.

I just returned the week before last from a 3 week trip to Brazil. My wife’s family (in case you don’t know) is from Northern Brazil. Teresina to be exact. So I spent a few weeks there along with a trip to Parnaiba and a few days at the beach for Carnival in Luís Correia. Yes it was nice.

I am always curious as to what is playing on TV when I am on the flipside of the equator and immediately noticed some standout branding spots for TLC and after a little research uncovered they were of course done by none other than Brazilian motion designer Nando Costa.

Iván Flugelman A.K.A. VVSVS has relocated to Berlin where he has started his own business. He already has an adept body of work to show including some work for notable clients like Subaru and Lady Gaga. It’s a nice combination of solid art direction, 3d and graphic design.

Some absolutely amazing c4d work from Daihei Shibata, who describes this video simply as ‘Synchbody for PMLS_IV_D from Jade Fib EP by Yaporigami’.

In addition to creating some killer hair dynamics and a dope video that explores some very current themes of human representation in a simulated environment, Daihei also very generously makes his entire c4d project and audio files available for download. (Japanese plugs in required)

Blur Studios does a great job nailing that sexy/evil thing with the opening titles for Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.

Naked instructed me to ‘ignore the music’ and watch the visuals but they are kinda part and parcel with one another when it comes to this sorta thing. I actually think they work rather well together but I will also admit that the visuals are definitely the more amazing of the pair. Bright, bold, neon and beautiful are words that are easily put to use.

Stash has posted their best videos from 2011 and if you lean more toward the motion, animation, 3d and broadcast side of the creative business, it’s an inspiring list to pick through.

This is actually Chris Moberg first ever demo reel. So if I were you, I’d be on the lookout for this guy in 2012. Solid work.

This is the trailer for Sascha Geddert’s next short film. Looks pretty sweet.

“In the vastness of space, there’s a a small speck of rock inhabited by the most peculiar lifeforms: Dark little dots that start to replicate fast and begin to show signs of intelligence. „Globosome“ tells the story of the rise and fall of these little creatures.

This film is inspired by the special times we’re living through on our own planet. We’re at the crossroads. The question is what makes humans actually different from bacteria in a petri dish. Surely we have culture, science and art but what does remain of these achievements if you look at our world from a global perspective. The Film will be released in Summer 2012.”

Written and Directed by: Sascha Geddert
Executive Producer: Philipp Wolf
Technical Directors: Tonio Freitag, Patrick Schuler
Compositing Supervisor: Johannes Peter
Stereo Lead: Andreas Feix
Concept Design: Jin-Ho Jeon
Music: Patrizio Deidda
