Gentleman Scholar


Upgraded from a quickie, we felt that Santa Monica based design studio, Gentleman Scholar, needed a closer look and a proper introduction.

Scholar is a collaboration between veteran Executive Producer, Rob Sanborn and Director/ Designer Duo, William Campbell and Will Johnson. Campbell and Johnson, have known each other since their days at the Savannah College of Art and Design. They first collaborated professionally at Superfad, where they met and worked with Sanborn.

Their work showcases a wide range of design from live action to fully animated CG. Their newest include a live action Chevron campaign,  an in-house short film called “Ike’s Kream,” and a haunting collaboration with director Sandro Miller and John Malkovich with “Butterflies.” Keep these guys on your radar!

SALESMEN BUCK DROPS AND THE CROWD GOES WILD

Two new shorts, “Meet Buck” and “Salesmen Pete,” have emerged from France by a group of extremely talented filmmakers coupled together on the same site.

“Meet Buck,” directed by Denis Bouyer, Yann De Preval, Vincent E Sousa, Laurent Monneron, takes us on an exquisitely designed and perfectly paced piece of storytelling featuring an antler-laden hero in search of some quality time with his girlfriend.  Just when you thought things were cool, enter: her dad, the hunter—and the real fun begins.

“Salesmen Pete” directed by Marc Bouyer, Max Loubaresse, Anthony Vivien, takes us on an equally intense ride as we follow a government enhanced super-agent out to stop thieving bad guys who now control an extraordinary magic stone. This ride is chocked full of fun characters, fast-paced action and spot-on design and animation. You gotta love it.

Be sure to check the Salesmen Buck site, under gallery, to find some cool process work on “Meet Buck,” and also check out this entire blog dedicated to Salesmen Pete and its process.

Superfad : Preguntas Hermosas

Superfad Seattle has just released a new short film called Preguntas Hermosas, a beautiful tale of a time shared between two people told through a combination of “Poema X” by Pablo Neruda and “Under the Harvest Moon” by Carl Sandburg. As explained by Director David Viau, “The story unfolds in three parts; a fond remembrance, loss, and then finally acceptance.”

With cinematic transitions and methodical pacing, Preguntas Hermosas casts dark characters in epic worlds for its arresting narrative. The film’s narrator, Gabriel Puerto, complements the score and adds depth to the amazing visual journey. The camera work shows great restraint, leaning more toward a practical approach to cinematography in the CG environment.

David was kind enough to share some of his thoughts and a bit of the process, after the jump:
