Some of the work in Le Soupe’s montage of IDs for Europe 2 TV really gets under my skin.
Sorry. Bad joke.
But hey, the work is good. Yes, the whole thumping 3D speaker thing is a bit played out, but Le Soupe has given the disembodied graphical element a plethora of inventive new homes that catch the eye and stick with you.

Thanks for the tip, Chris.
This new VW Touran ad is chock full of clever details and fun transitions. (I wish the people responsible for the Regal Cinemas roller coaster animation would have seen this before creating that abomination.) Conceptually, it’s similar to the Goldfrapp “Twist” video from a few years back, but being a commercial for a car and not a music video for a super-sexy diva, the Touran spot has a slightly different goal in mind.
Thanks to Seth for the tip.
A couple months ago, Jeremy Lasky (Design Director) and Danny Gonzalez (Effects Director) of NYC-based studio Perception visited the Savannah College of Art and Design to give a talk about a series of six promos they created for ESPNâ€™s coverage of the Major League Baseball playoffs.
I was really impressed by Jeremy and Dannyâ€™s presentation. They showed us everything about the project, from concept to deliveryâ€”including boards and ideas that didnâ€™t make the cut. As a student, I found the whole experience to be incredibly informative, and we all thought itâ€™d be a good idea to essentially recreate much of the Perception presentation in Q&A form here on Motionographer.
