The Incredibles | a Scene of Revelations

https://youtu.be/_h3tpiJLsQw

A look at one crucial scene in Brad Bird's The Incredibles.


Mended Little Hearts

https://youtu.be/hiLefHwZmE8

 

Check out the breakdown here: https://youtu.be/xODCdqTWzRo

The MENDED LITTLE HEARTS organization supports children, patients and families suffering from congenital heart disease. To create more awareness of their important work, they commissioned BLACKLIST & STUDIO AKA to create a unique set of animations that illustrate the proposition that the more you donate the better the story gets.

There are five different versions of the animation which range from sparse renders in which most if not all the background is invisible, forcing us to rely on sounds and shadows only for instance - through a version with increasingly more apparent elements; and a final complete rendered version.

The perception of the same story told in different visual renders makes some subtle differences to how the story is perceived and rewards the commitment of the viewer with each successive viewing.

Film Contact 1997 - Brilliant Tricky Mirror Shot Explained

https://youtu.be/Fxa3j8bK-c4

Contact visual effects supervisors Ken Ralston and Stephen Rosenbaum explain how this amazing scene was shot.


From VFX Blog... read more here.

 

vfxblog: So how did you plan it and how did you pull it off? I think people are still bamboozled by it.

Ralston: Well, the idea was to present it in a simple way. The beauty of it is, anywhere else, there’d be cutaways of course to show what you need to know. So first of all, once we had it boarded, and I don’t think we ever did previs in those days on most things, but we knew what we wanted. Plus you have to realise, when you’re on a set you have to be there to let the reality of what you’re shooting dictate the next step sometimes. So the first thing you obviously have to get is her.

Mirror1

Our camera operator, who was also a great Steadicam operator, had to keep running up those stairs with her over and over, and he was dying. I forget how many takes we got of her running up. Plus there’s this ramp slow down, which is also happening as she runs up, it goes into slow-mo.

So, using all of that as her timing reference, then I try to figure out, well, okay what’s the simplest way of shooting her? Do I have to tell her where to reach so that the hand coming in from the other side matches as if it was a mirror reflection? It’s all just, how fast do we pull out of this mirror?

I’m trying to remember all the pieces that we shot. I know that we pulled back, we had the medicine cabinet obviously that we come into, and then the mirror closes slowly. That’s all these separate pieces. And the only reason to separate them is you never know down the line when the director might say, ‘Could we…’, and then they want to change it somehow. If you can break if up into little minuscule little parts, you can make your job a little easier. Although I don’t think we ever did anything on that.

I know we added bevels on the mirror, because there was no mirror, and it was just a blue screen stuck to a medicine cabinet mirror that should have been there. And we just put a little schmutz on it so it looked like it was a real thing, and on you go.

Travelling Through Brush and Ink | Making of 筆墨行旅 | 幕後特輯 from annlinchao on Vimeo.

 

Watch "Behind the Scene" here: vimeo.com/224334164

**Winner of Worldfest Huston International Film Festival 2017**
"Travelling Through Brush and Ink" is a stop-motion animation of a little modern man traveling through four significant ancient Chinese paintings, transforming himself into animals and plants, and becomes part of the nature. Each painting represents four important stages of landscape art in Chinese history. Based on the original paintings, we built the sets and animated little character inside- all frame by frame. The animation is the opening film of 2016 annual exhibition National Palace Museum Taiwan.

**2017休士頓國際影展動畫獎得主**
“筆墨行旅”故事敘述一個現代男子進入畫中世界展開旅程,在旅程中形變成動物或植物,與自然合而為一。動畫中的四個場景分別為四幅歷史上重要的中國山水畫,畫中景色被製作成真實模型場景,人物和動植物在其中全是逐格拍攝。
四幅畫分別為唐代〈明皇幸蜀圖〉、北宋〈谿山行旅圖〉、南宋〈巖關古寺〉及元代〈鵲華秋色圖〉,呈現中國山水畫講求可行、可望、可遊、可居之意境,為中國山水畫的歷代風格演變的代表。本動畫是台灣國立故宮博物院2016年度典藏展的開幕片。

AUTO NOM

https://vimeo.com/221472035

Oh hello lovely machine, emancipating yourself from function... You look adorable, you know? Yes dear, you were built to be autonomous, it said so in the campaign brief.
No rush – getting from A to B was never an exciting idea to begin with, for your kind. Dance yourself clean, pull your metal frame apart and let the sun burn through your circuits. Ride your autobiography, guided by the beauty of your code.
Fresh freedom smells like common place, and "authenticity" like a frivolous illusion of your makers. So your character was designed to be self-organizing: a beautiful homage to the combined effort of all of those minds that built you – considering your appearance being a quite sloppy imitation of life.
Regardless that those who started this are no longer around:
Still looking forward to your feedback.
What do *you* think?

Auto Nom offers an upbeat alternative on unexpected consequences of autonomous mobility. It is the latest work by ZEITGUISED’s new offspin f°am Studio, and part of a series of character animation narratives based on the personality of Autonomous Rolf. Written, directed and designed by f°am Studio, this fictitious self-driving classic german car gets under your hood with its freedom loving behaviour.

Pixar reveals an all-Latino cast for Coco (and a new poster!)

Along with a beautiful new poster, Pixar released details today of the large cast of characters that we can look forward to seeing in Coco later this year, all voiced by actors of Latino descent (including Gabriel Iglesias, Renée Victor, Sofía Espinosa, and Edward James Olmos). It’s worth remembering that Pixar put a lot of effort into making the cast of Brave entirely Scottish or of Scottish descent (save a few lines of dialogue, like the now-essential John Ratzenberger cameo), so it’s great to see them doing the same and more for Coco.

-COCOON-

What is this? I don’t recognise this
Pain broke in
And took it all
Took the song from the Springtime
And the dance from the flame
Took the noonday warmth
And the morning hush

Now the ground’s spilling beneath me
The ropes are uncoiling
The trees are leafless
The sky is torn
My breath’s a broken feather
There’s no beauty left
There’s nothing here for me I’m paper thin
I’m in a room of shadows and it’s caving in
I’m turning in circles
I’m giving up
The world is giddy
The sense is gone
The floor is an ocean
I’m sinking in

Where are You now?
Where is Your touch?
Where is the reason?
The answer?
The end?
Now I’m chasing Your shadow
And I’m grasping for questions
I’m calling out
I’m asking why?

Yet when I turn You turn
When I reach You reach
And in the searing burn
You wait for me
Dress my tears in kisses
Cradle my grief
Touch me in the silence
Hold me in the heat
And when the ragings rush
Drown me in defeat
I make my bed of dust
And you lie with me

Robot & Scarecrow

Set amidst the euphoric madness of a summer music festival, Robot & Scarecrow is a uniquely modern fairy tale about love. When a robot pop diva flees her keepers she runs straight into the arms of a lonely scarecrow desperate for adventure. They spend an incredible night together, caught in a heady vortex of music and magic:

Produced by Factory Fifteen and Nexus, the 15-minute-long Robot & Scarecrow was commissioned by social media network Vero and Michael Fassbender and Conor McCaughan’s production company DMC Film under a new partnership initiative aimed at supporting emerging directors. The CG-driven short, which stars Jack O'Connell and Holliday Grainger, was shot at U.K. music festival Secret Garden Party by cinematographer Luke Jacobs, and was directed by London-based director Kibwe Tavares (JonahRobots of Brixton) and produced by Daniel Emmerson (Assassin’s Creed12 Years A Slave).


Legio XVII

https://vimeo.com/216002023

Jérémy Cisse presents his new short film LEGIO XVII, directed during his 4th year at Supinfocom Valenciennes. 

The story was inspired by a historic battle of the ancient Rome, when the Germans clans join the rebellion organized by Arminius and push the Romans out of the Germania.

Germania, 9 ap. J.-C.

The story was inspired by a historic battle of the ancient Rome when the Germans clans join the rebellion organized by Arminius and push the Romans out of the Germania. This Roman army was the greatest army of this time, composed by three legions ( XVII, XVIII, and XIX ). Arminius had an army much less important and yet, he decides to attack the biggest Roman army on the German territory. He attracted them into the forest and took them in ambush.

All three legions were destroyed in what is known as the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, After their destruction, the Romans never used these legion numbers (XVII, XVIII, and XIX) again and never come back to Germania.

I worked closely with Warren and Nick from W&N studio to bring this piece to life over the last few months. We started with allot of experimenting in 3D, exploring the themes of death and decay, transformation and rebirth. Bjork fell in love with the organic/biological tests we had done early on and we set out to build on this theme.

We used Maya and V-ray as our rendering platform and Houdini to generate the detailed growth systems.

Many thanks to W&N and Bjork for the opportunity to run wild and create something rad.
