Impactist: Field Trip

Field Trip is an interesting new project from Impactist. Each of the three "trips" in the series is a little expressionistic gem of sound and video, capturing an ephemeral complex of feelings and memories and re-presenting it in an unexpected light.

My favorite is "Rainy Day Recess," which recalls the tortuous restlessness of being forced to stay indoors when all you wanted to do was go outside and get sweaty chasing girls and kicking balls (or chasing balls and kicking girls, depending on what kind of kid you were).

Big kudos to Impactist for making Field Trip. Yes, it can be thought of as only an act of self-promotion, but these are heartfelt works with the marks of their makers on them. They feel personal and genuine, unlike a slick new reel or self-promo spot can sometimes feel. I’d love to see more studios making work for work’s sake.

Some may even call it art. Or at least artful.

    Well, i am not sure why this guys made it toREs in first place.
    I dont see anything outstanding in their reel or work
    Sorry but very mediocre

    I really liked ‘Bread Factory’. I’m really tired of seeing stuff full of 3D and color these days. I don’t see how anyone could say this stuff is ‘mediocre’ given that there more than just eyecandy.

    It told a simple story –something most motion graphics pieces don’t even put the effort in doing.

    I love Impactist and their work. I wish I had the discipline to create outside of my job like they do.

  • i really liked bread factory as well.. that’s what i was hoping for with the other 2..

    they didn’t feel remeniscent of school at all to me
    i really felt disconnected from those..

    as if.. every modern day technical advancement decided to travel back in time and ruin my childhood by giving me a schedule and alarms to wake up to..

    not saying they’re bad.. they’re all nice pieces in their own regard.. but Bread Factory is where i think they all should have been shooting for..

    or a similar feel to something like the “Camp Cartoon” promos that i think Lobo made? (forgive me if i’m wrong about the studio)
