I seem to have a thing for posting in pairs lately. Weird.
Jake Portman & Bill Sneed: The Forest in Winter
There might be something wrong with Jake Portman?s mind. This is good news, of course. As long as keeps making movies like his latest creation, ?The Forest in Winter,? I wholeheartedly encourage the further deterioration of his sanity.
You might remember Mr. Portman?s excellent ?Rainy Day Fun for Children Ages 6 and Up,? which was nominated for a 2005 Tween Award ?The Forest in Winter,? a collaborative project with Bill Sneed, makes ?Rainy Day? look pedestrian by comparison.
I won?t spoil the fun by trying to disassemble the piece. Just watch it. You’ll see.
David Holm, a Senior Designer for FAD NYC, has some nice moments in his reel. I like the grungy aesthetic; it’s a nice change of pace and it fits well with the music. I only wish the soundtrack was a little more dynamic; it’s repetitive nature draws attention to its own monotone character.
Speaking of FAD, congratulations to Eric Edwards, a recent SCAD graduate who’s been hired at FAD’s Seattle office.
I predict that FAD is on its way up, and I’m going to keep them blinking on my radar. If I’m wrong, please publicly ridicule me. I love that.
