Sehsucht: Auto Trophy 2007


For the past several years, Hamburg-based Sehsucht studios has been creating show-opens for Auto Trophy, an annual auto show in Germany. Their latest in the series is a spellbinding trip that takes you from 3D realism to 2D abstraction.

Director and 3D artist Timo Schädel headed up this effort, with 2D assistance from Martin Hess. The music is from Sebastian Zenke at Blunk & Will.

Matt Lavoy


While his work focuses more on compositing, particle generation and vfx supervision than most of the folks we talk about here on Motionographer, LA-based Matt Lavoy’s reel is a solid bit of viewing. The sustained level of polish in his work stands up to frame-by-frame scrutiny, and the fluidity of his transitions is astounding.

I’d also love to see more cut lists like the one Matt has on his site. It’s a helpful, non-intrusive way to make sure we all know what we’re looking at.

PS — In case it wasn’t clear from Matt’s site, the still above is from the Superfad Pioneer spot we featured here a while back. Matt was one of about 20 people on the team.
