Friends of Mine was asked to contribute to the ‘Radical Openess’ TED Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland in collaboration with illustrator and director Superdeux. A friend of mine (no pun intended) Burke Miles developed the animation using the illustrations from Superdeux. They turned out a nice little intro along with sound produced by Dynamitve Laserbeam.

Good show Burke.

This is a fun little self-initiated project by . Hopefully it will serve as a friendly reminder to get out there and create. Don’t wait for a project. Just do it. If you create, it will come.

My friends at Legwork have released their latest reel for 2012 and it’s chock full of whoop ass. I had a chance of working with these guys maybe 4-5 years back just as they were very first starting out and turned down the chance. I’ve been kicking myself ever since. They continue to amaze me with the kind of work they are continually putting out and their star is fast on the rise here in Denver. All of it is deserved though because they work their asses off. Keep it up guys. I’ve got nothing but love.

Motion designer Jonathan Kim lives and works in Los Angeles where he is an Art Director at Royale. He was kind enough to send in his portfolio that is rich with stunning visuals. He’s got some real talent and I’d imagine he’s felt the pull of more than one or two studios in LA because he looks like a hot commodity. Great work all around.

He was invited by SICAF and the animation was developed using his personal sketchbook created through observing day-to-day life in the city. The story is based on the lives of 3 people who live in Seoul where they are always watched over by the mountains that lie just beyond the city.

Joshua Catalano developed this simple music video that in many ways almost feels like the graphics are generative based on the actual audio. It doesn’t look like Proce55ing though I could be totally wrong. If you know any more than I do, please leave a comment or two.

This is a surreal and super psychedelic experimental 3d animation piece completed entirely by Russian motion designer and animator Dxmiq. It’s trippy to say the least and made me wonder what a director like Kubrick would’ve been able to do with abstract visuals like this if he were still around today.
