“For FITC Amsterdam 2013, we created these titles based on the creative designed by mr Bradley G Munkowitz (aka GMUNK)
Since Bradley was already working on the creative for the print campaign of FITC Amsterdam 2013, and we loved his design work, we decided to step in and give FITC a complete and cohesive visual package instead of visually creating something completely new or different.

And so here it is.. our “Pyradical” main titles for FITC Amsterdam 2013. Pure disco!”

Produced for FITC Amsterdam 2013. More info at fitc.ca/amsterdam

Credits:
Design & Concept: GMUNK (gmunk.com/)
Production & Direction : ONESIZE (onesize.com)
Type Font Design: Brian M Gosset (briangossett.com/)
Music & Sound Design: MassiveMusic (massivemusic.com/)

The soundtrack was composed and designed by our friends @ MassiveMusic Amsterdam

Man I want to go to this so bad this year. Hmm. How to talk my wife into letting me go to Barcelona.

Paper Age from Ken Ottmann on Vimeo.

I’ll be perfectly honest and say that I don’t really agree with the premise here since I am a die-hard print man but it’s a well-done and clever animation none-the-less.

Researching character rigging, polygon reduction, depth of field and motion blur in Cinema 4D.

Wow this was a lot of work. Simple animation style but a lot of work.

This work is an alphabetical list of the most important architects with their best known building.
A lot of them have been left out with grief because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have differents nationalities. If you love architecture, for more stuff you can follow us in ombuarchitecture.tumblr.com

My good friends at Spillt here in Denver, Colorado recently created this promotional piece for the anual 2013 Paper Fashion Show. It’s a local show that has been running several years now but this is far and away the best promo-spot I’ve ever seen created for it. Excellent job guys.

I Love Dust was approached earlier this year by the Cartoon Network to produce something memorable for their 20th anniversary. What followed is this 2 minute mind-melting bonanza featuring original music by Mad Decent and nearly every character who’s ever moved across the screen since Cartoon Network began airing content. It’s most definitely I Love Dust’s crowning animated achievement thus far.

My friend Burke Miles was mentioned in an earlier post today but the man deserves his own space. He’s recently updated his site with a new reel and he is one of Denver’s best kept local secrets. He’s oozing with talent, he’s humble, modest and he’s a genuinely good person. All the right stuff to make for one of the best possible people to work with in Colorado. He was a part of the secret sauce here at Changethethought before we momentarily merged and then split with Friends of Mine and that is where he continues to work now. He does still accept freelance however and if you are looking for someone good to work with directly, Burke is most definitely your man. There isn’t enough room on this blog for all the good things I could say about him and I sure miss having him in my studio.
