Creative League

This site was posted awhile back as a quickie I think, but has since been updated, and tuned to be something that’s worth another mention. Creative League is a resource for motion graphic artists to post their own work, and allows for searching and sorting. All streamlined and easy. It’s worth checking out. Post your work. Get noticed.

It’s rare to me to find a piece of work in our industry that seems to have true meaning to someone beyond just creative expression. I recently was linked to this video on youtube which really affected me after reading what it was about, who made it and why. You can read in the description on the youtube page for it, but Mathieu Labaye made this stunning animation in honor of his father who struggled with multiple sclerosis.

Be patient through the beginning, it starts a little slow. Definitely read through the translation of the voice over, I’m sure you will find this piece to be much more than just a beautifully executed, tedious, and impressive bit of hand drawn animation. What a great expression of what it means to be free to move. I can only imagine how Mathieu’s father struggled with the desire to feel like this(meaning the part with the white background) every day of his life.

NOTE:This was posted as a Quickie a while back, but we felt it deserves a re-post and an upgrade to the main posting area.

NOTE 2:Here is a version of the animation with subtitles. Thanks Guillaume!

Craig Hubbard

Craig has an updated site which shows he’s a jack of all trades, master of all. Great work all around with a super polished look, and a distinct style of animation. He quietly preys on his clients amongst the streets of NY, so look out! Be sure to check out his reel commentary. Pretty hilarious! Someone give this guy some work so he can move out, for pity’s sake!

Jake Sargeant, unleashed…

Mograph Rockstar, Jake Sargeant, former senior designer at Motion Theory, has entered the freelance market with a freshly updated site. It’s packed full of stuff we are all no doubt familiar with, such as the hp hands campaign, or the House titles, so he doesn’t need much of an introduction. Check it out…

Diesel Holographic Fashion Show

It’s been really interesting seeing what new mediums motion graphic design spreads to. Clothing company, Diesel, recently implemented some holographic technology to use in a runway show in Italy, displaying floating images that interact with, supplement, and transition the live models. While the technology itself isn’t insanely new (The Gorillaz have used it for their live performances), it seems fitting that a company like diesel, who pushes the boundaries of design and many aspects, would use it in such an interesting way. Check out this link which contains a short write up about it and a you tube video showing the 17 minute show.

Spanish animation studio DVein created the animation, and denmark company Vizoo headed up stage production.

Pic Pic Andre

I saw the work of this French stop-motion artist (correction: it seems this is a duo from belgium, and here is their site) awhile back when his first short ‘Panique Au Village’ made its rounds, and I instantly loved it. The quirky characteristics of the animation are hard to mistake with any other stop motion I’ve ever seen and I love the use of miniature figurines that I remember from yester-year. Recently, two spots were done for Cravendale milk, which are equally as entertaining as the two ‘Panique Au Village’ shorts. Curiously, they all contain a trio of lead characters, consisting of two typecast males and a large barn animal, either a cow or a horse. And they always live together and sleep in the same room. Funny. Funny weird, or funny haha? Both? Definitely funny-haha.

Check it out. Nexus Productions is an assembly of multiple directors that create alot of work that we are very familiar with. The site is flash so I have to link to saved favorites containing Pic Pic Andre’s work. When you view one, just click back to ‘my favorites’ to access the others. Hopefully it works, if not, just find Pic Pic Andre in the directors list.

Justin Harder

This may be old news to some, I’m not really sure when it went live, but Justin Harder has graced the internet with a home for all of his notable work, seemingly from his entire career thus far. In addition, he’s indulged his fans with extra tid bits of info including process and styleframes for many of those projects as well. A wonderful insight into, dare I say it, one of the forefathers of contemporary motion graphic design. I’m sure that’s debatable, but at the very least, it’s true for me. Love him or hate him, it’s hard to deny that he paved the way for many things we now know of and admire with our industry. Rewind to 2002 to the ‘Lets Make Some Shapes‘ demo reel, watch, and tell me you aren’t still impressed by Justin’s ‘Sequence Design’. It happened then, and never again because of the painstaking care that it took to create animation like that. I know I’ll always look back at his 2003 reel, and remember the times early in my career, sitting at my computer at 2am, watching in overwhelmed amazement, and think, ‘those were the days’. Thanks for the little peak into your world, Justin.

Kosinski – Saab

Director Joseph Kosinski is back with the prowess of his definable style in this super slick ad for SAAB. There’s just something about his 3d work that always seems to stand on it’s own, but I can’t ever seem to pin point it. The scene of the car moving through the forest is just magic, those trees are fantastic. Take a look.

Thanks to Seth for the excellent tipage.

More Ugo!

Just wanted to bump Ugo over here from the quickies. As former art director at Eyeball, I think he does some refreshing, smart, and overall excellent work, including working on the eyeball promo video, which I really enjoyed, as I’m sure everyone did. It’s pretty classic…

Be sure to check out the g4 rebrand(link at the very bottom of his page). Super slick, simple, and fitting.

He’s out on the job market and lookin for work. Get him while he’s hot!

Indivi abound

Here’s a slew of individuals and their sites that that seem to be doing things right.

Doug Purver has apparently recently left Stardust to venture out on his own in the freelance market. While we’ve seen all the work before from Stardust; it’s nice seeing it all together here mixed in with some stuff I wasn’t personally familiar with. Killer music for the reel, also.

Michelle Higa also has a nice collection of work. Take a minute to check out her ‘love labors’, which boasts some interesting projects such as ‘Kinetoscope’, an interactive motion graphic art installation.

And Future Member, the site for Mike Slane, who has an incredible array of work and seems to be a major player for Motion Theory. EDIT: Mike is actually playing with the Exopolis crew these days.

Thanks to Jon Saunders for the heads up on these guys.

Tomas Garcia

Was clued in on this guy earlier. He is starting a new studio called Sagas, and they have a really interesting reel. Tomas’ personal site is very fun to peruse as well. Check it out. Apparently his dog helps him.

A fantastic look at a day in the life of a valiant and daring lady bug as he goes about seeking thrills at the expense of others. So funny, literally had me laughing out loud. Some priceless moments in this one. Interesting visual mix of CG animation on top of live action shot for the BG plates. It’s quirky, and obivously mis-matched, but it works. Love it.

Move over Cee-Lo

I recently saw a new music video on the latest edition of Stash for the hip-hop group Subtle, directed by the uber-talented SSSR of passion pictures. After hearing the song, I had to buy the album, and found this lovely description of Subtle’s music…

‘If Cee-Lo truly went ”Crazy” and paired up with a producer much wilier than Danger Mouse, he’d sound something like the gnarled sound collages of Subtle.’

Which I completely agree with. Awesome music, and an awesome video. I knew it looked familiar, because upon a little digging, I found out that SSSR did another video in the past for Subtle, for the track FKO (which by the way, stands for F*ck Kelly Osbourne), which I remember seeing a couple years ago and loving. THEN I found out that that video was the first part of a trilogy of music videos for Subtle, which is a tight idea, and not one I’ve heard of being done before… but who knows, probably has been. Anyway, here’s the trilogy. Awesome stuff by the peeps at SSSR.

(sorry, all links to youtube)

Part 1 – FKO
Part 2 – The Long Vein of the Law
Part 3 – Swan Meat

*edit* found a website for the band here

JJ & Maithy

While perusing mograph today I stumbled upon updates on both JJ and Maithy’s part… however, seperate! Upon investigation of Hornets site, Maithy is no longer side be side with JJ, in fact, isn’t even there at all, and JJ has a new piece up. The impressionauts is a quirk of an animation, imaginative, charming, cute, and… kinda gross at the same time. Amazing really, as expected, from the stylings to the animation, all the way down to the sound design, which is really well done. The fact that you can hear the innerds of that huge woman jiggle about as she chuckles makes me uncomfortable, as I’m sure they are so designed to.

Maithy also has a new reel up, which is certainly a show, fully intact with an intermission and all…

Always nice to see new work from either of these peeps.
