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.
“A montage of works from the past year, ranging from live performance visuals with renowned VJ Vello Virkhaus to interactive installations for our agency and client partners.” – Leviathan
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.
Vinicius Costa sent a humble little, ‘hey check out my latest work’ type of email and I have to say very humbly that I am floored. Wow. Absolutely gorgeous work is spilling over his amazing portfolio. What a talent.
AXN LatinAmerica called on Plenty to develop a promo of one of its primetime shows, “Criminal Minds”, whose main characters are a team of FBI profilers who analyze ‘Criminal Minds’ to deduce their next move.

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.”

“An abstracted visual interpretation of the creation of the Arab Spring. While not setting out to to be a polemic, this short is an optimistic piece about the amazing manifestation of people power that is the Arab Spring. Please note: The cube is NOT meant to represent the Ka’abal.” Well okay then. Credits go to Marxº
“This Short Film Animation Project has been created by students of The Animation School to gain vital work experience.” Well okay then. This is a pretty amazing piece for student work. It seems like there has been a lot of that going around lately. Stick around at the end to see the credits for all involved.
Old Black is a music video for Egyptrixx created by DAT DAT DAT aka Andreas N. Fischer in who is a Berlin based motion designer and 3D animator.
The guys in the studio turned me onto the motion work of the German studio Polynoid today. The work is slick, psychedelic and totally awesome (case in point the work for Mtv above). You can visit their website and portfolio here.
Well I am sure you have noticed that my blogging pace has slowed quite a bit these past few months. The reason being is that about 20 months ago I launched the Changethethought production studio. In the past year we have completed around 50 or so motion design, 3D, illustration and graphic design related projects. Our focus so far has tended to be motion and 3D but we are still delivering a lot of illustration and graphic design based projects for print. We are still very much just starting out with this new venture but we’ve managed to work with some exciting agencies and clients already. Our best projects so far are currently in the pipeline so please keep an eye on our portfolio as it will be changing often.
You can view our new site and reel here: changethethought.tv
Thanks so much as always for supporting Changethethought and expect a lot of new things to happen in the coming months.

Anck is the work of Renaud Futterer. He is a motion designer who recently relocated to London and is on the hunt for new projects. Judging by his reel, it probably won’t take him long to get busy.
Benjamin Simon is a young 3D illustrator, motion designer and graphic designer based out of Madrid, Spain. He is working freelance currently and has some very slick work in his portfolio.
“Brixton has degenerated into a disregarded area inhabited by London’s new robot workforce – robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of Brixton has rocketed, resulting in unplanned, cheap and quick additions to the skyline.
The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.”

David O Reilly does his wonderful thing for Tim and Eric who are even more wonderful in their own fantastically weird yet totally hilarious way. And those very adjectives perfectly describe what’s on display here. Awesome.
