Got ya and it’s not even April Fool’s yet. :) The scale has been ‘tipped’ and we’ve sold out our early tickets.
What’s surprising is the response from other creative communities; not only have the motionographers come out in support, but there’s also been an unprecedented response from creatives in fashion, fine art, publishing… even pharmaceutical marketing. You all share the desire to break out of this harsh winter and start the spring anew. Happy.
Regular tickets are now available at the price of $480; student tickets at a reduced rate of $280. These prices will remain until the end of the festival.
Tune in next week for another announcement—this time about what’s surely on everyone’s minds…
Despite its criticisms, the unanimous consensus regarding TRON: Legacy is that it’s both visually and technically stunning. We had a chance to catch up with the crew that made it happen, Digital Domain. Not only were they the forces behind its production—alongside director Joe Kosinski, of course—they helped shaped the film far before a pixel was even rendered.
Giving us a fully detailed account of their creative and technical processes were Eric Barba, Visual Effects Supervisor; Ed Ulbrich, Digital Domain Commercials Division President and Executive Producer; and Darren Gilford, Production Designer.
Another major note is the integral involvement of some very familiar veterans of the motion design scene, including GMUNK and Jake Sargeant as Lead Animated Graphics Artists working with a team of David Lewandowski, Adam Swaab, Joseph Chan, Josh Nimoy and Karsten Schmidt.
