“A chorus of women are borne from the movements of a single dancer in this dreamlike “pas de trente-deux.”
‘Choros’ premiered at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2012 and has gone on to play dozens of festivals worldwide. The film is currently broadcast in Europe by Canal+.”

My friend Mike Walters turned me onto the bizarre Photoshop compositing work of Android Jones. It’s a heavily-layered affair that would no doubt put a crunch on your machine. His work has sparked some interest as of late and he may actually be exhibiting here in Denver soon. Keep an eye out. I would imagine it would be something else altogether to see his imagery in print.

There is some excellent compositing done by John Harrison in this video for Badly Drawn Boy’s single ‘Too Many Miracles’. The video was directed by Sam Mason and produced by Tamsin Glasson. I should also note that I am a big fan of Badly Drawn Boy. Double whammy.

Yeah I know, it’s Linkin Park but hey the compositing in this video is awesome. I am not sure who directed or animated the video but it’s a great effect and even more kudos go to giving Linkin Park a makeover.
Motion designer Ed Laag is currently freelancing for Shilo where he is belting out some pretty kick-ass visuals with a truly cinematic slant. He’s super good at what he does and it shows right from the moment the thumbnails load on the homepage. Impressive work.
