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.
3D and motion studio Blur has updated with a spectacular body of work including some downright mind blowing cinematic video game trailers. It’s amazing they even had time to put a site online considering how involved producing such work must be.
Round 6 is a made up video game trailer for a nonexistent game created by Snowball Studios. It’s a highly effective exercise and self-promotional piece to be sure. The attention to detail is staggering and it’s an impressive bit of 3D animation accomplished in a highly cinematic style.
This is radical. It starts off slow but give it a chance because once it gets going you have to find something to hold onto. Awesome. Be sure to click the link at the end of the details below to check out more of Musclebeaver’s work. They rock.
This animation we did was planned and animated for the prologue of a documentary.
(That explains the absurd, unfinished seeming, ending.That is where the actual documentary starts…. )
The briefing was to show an evolution of computer games.
The documentary itself is about different people, based here in germany, showing their everyday life, and their addiction to the same specific, famous MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role playing game):”Wo..”
Every game character in this prologue was reinterpreted, redrawn (…one pixel at a time), and animated frame by frame.
05/18 SENDAK PASSES The brilliant author and illustrator Maurice Sendak passed away last week at the age of 83 but will no doubt be remembered for generations to come for his amazing books such as Where the Wild Things Are.
04/12 ZIMMERMAN FACES MURDER In a case we’ve been following closely there is finally what we think is some good news to report. George ZImmerman, the man accused of killing the innocent teenager Trayvon Martin has been taken into custody and charged with second degree murder. At last there is some justice.
12/16 HITCHENS DIES Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.
11/23 BURZYNKSI CLINIC Is there an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer? Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski seems to think so and has been experiencing higher rate of success than the current accepted practice of treating cancer.
