I just got back from Universal StudiosÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Islands of Adventure at about 2am last night, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a little groggy. That park is frigginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ amazing, by the way. The fire and ice dragon roller-coasters are without a doubt the best roller-coasters IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever ridden.
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of work I want to post, but in the interest of proper digestion, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to spread it out over the next few days. Okay, here we goÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
I never knew watching Jenna Jameson destroy a machine could be so entertaining. To see what I mean, check out TronicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s short film for the launch of Adicolor, a new sneaker line from Adidas.
The ultra-white aesthetic of the spot is in keeping with the Adicolor concept and brand campaign. For more information about Adicolor, see the official site. For a little commentary on the brand campaign, read this post from Wooster Collective.
Like some of TronicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s other conceptual work, the Adicolor spot uses the visual devices of destruction and disassembly to create dramatic tension and visual interest. JennaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ample breasts also help in this effort. It seems to me that Tronic had a good deal of fun with this spot, even poking fun at themselves a little in the process. Well done.
Fad: “Pachuca Sunrise”
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to comment much on this, but I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worth your time to watch FadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s music video for Minus the BearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s “Pachuca Sunrise,” if only for its sensual textures and beautiful use of color.
As IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve said before, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know much about vfx, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a sucker for before-and-after sequences and making-of videos. Grid VFXÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s site is full of this stuff, in addition to containing some solid vfx work.
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a ton of work on their site, and their reel is jam-packed with a wide variety of projects. I was so impressed, in fact, that I went ahead and added them to the Cream. Welcome aboard, Grid!
Feel Good Anyway: Smorgasbord Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ06
Feel Good Anyway has added a new reel to their site, Smorgasbord Ã¢â‚¬Ëœ06.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always liked FGAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s quirky take on the world. Their understated, subtle humor permeates everything they do, imbuing their work with a freshness that eschews trendiness.
Thanks Ryan Rothermel.
