This is some amazing work right here from Danil Krivoruchko.
“Jägermeister wanted to create a stylised video piece to promote their drinks brand across a range of clubs in Germany. Displayed on large flat screen monitors and digital media throughout various participating venues, the content needed to speak about the brand in a refreshing, energetic way.
Creating something interesting, and quite abstract, whilst simultaneously telling a story was of importance during this project. The finished piece was designed to loop indefinitely, yet it can still be interpreted as a journey through the dimensions of evolution, moments in time and kinetic energy.
Thanks to Angelo Wellens, who spent many late nights helping with the animation. And Henrique Matias for the soundtrack. Created at Hi-ReS!”
Imaginary Forces is once again cranking some jaw-dropping work for the God of War series of video games. I was incredibly inspired by their previous work for the game and this little preview ups the ante and does not disappoint.

This is apparently a compilation of works from not just this year but the past two years from the remarkably talented motion studio We Are Seventeen.
A short film about hidden meanings. Music was done by Ivan Arnold. For more visit rokpredin.com or trunk.me.uk.
Lucio Arese emailed this absolutely brain exploding insane experimental music video he cerated titled ‘Mimic’. The music was composed by Yu Miyashita.
“Shot into a cattle market, the film rides the verge between nonsense, random noise and organic, structured audiovisual events, enhancing the plastic clashes of a digital inserted foreground into an old and rusty environment.
Humorous, lunatic, cartoonish, nightmarish, Mimic is an attempt to reach a complete unity between music and motion picture in an epoch of violent changes.”
There is some red hot work being fired out of the canon at Capacity, a motion design and production studio based like so many other out of LA.
This is the official video by Dmitry Zakharov for the track “Micron” by Max Cooper, released on Traum Schallplatten.
“Life comes into being, blooms and vanishes. And where all life is built of smaller parts that form a living whole, in this video I created fractals of human body parts that are born, bloom to form a larger, more coherent whole, then die. They’re abstracted hands, ears, and faces similar to Max’s earlier ‘positive mutation’ visuals – tying a minimalist look in with abstracted shapes. Max often works with ideas around the aesthetics of science, and I wanted to connect the scientific idea of fractals to the experience of life itself.”
- Dmitry Zakharov, animator.

The New York Times recently approached our friends at Legwork to produce a video outlining the failed deal between Obama and Boehner. Not surprisingly Legwork’s signature style is again attracting a lot of attention. It’s official, they are on fire.
I wrote about the work of Daniel Moreno a long while back and featured his animation explaining the art of hand rolling a cigarette. He has since been busy and recently released his 2012 reel. It appears he has spent some time developing his craft and it shows well.
Jake Sargeant is an amazing motion designer and animator who has produced some kick ass works for agencies and film studios. Prepare to be inspired while picking through his portfolio. He’s the real deal.
I don’t know a lot, if anything about this project or the film that it’s for but considering the source material, cast and director, it sounds like it could be a pretty strong film.
“Title sequence for a film based on the Kurt Vonnegut novel. Made with Tal Moskovich.
Our goal was to create a visual interpretation of a phenomenon in space known as chrono-synclastic infundibulum, which is defined by Vonnegut as ‘those places … where all the different kinds of
truth fit together.’”
Music by Tomáš Dvořák
Ohio-based (yeah go Ohio!) Space Junk is cranking out some pretty good-lookin’ motion and animation work including the above piece for Magic The Gathering.
