The results of the 2011 Lumion Competition were announced today, an boy what amazing things can be done with this tool! It really makes me rethink the way I work today, and I have a lot to learn about it (and look forward too). I think the movie that came out in third place is the best among them all maybe its the strong architectural design that fits my taste so precisely.
Piranha was commissioned by Silverstein Properties to create a short film depicting the completion of The New World Trade Center site. Piranha wrote, produced, art directed, filmed, and finished all vfx for this inspiring piece marking the 10th year anniversary of 9/11. One of the best I’ve seen!
A companion set of images to the making-of ‘The House’ article by Alex York. You will find here the full set of still images and the video too. Unlike the latest, and now annoying, trend of jazzing everything up with animating the scene buildup, adding light streaks, paths and other motion graphics to the mix… This is one of the better Architectural Explanatory Animation I’ve seen for a long time. Nothing fancy about the camera movements and yet it’s not the boring walk-through too. This animation was intended to allow the Client to understand the house in great detail and also the relations between the various spaces – the circulation among them.
Take a look at the latest short animation by Marek Denko and after that please try to convince me he isn’t an Extraterrestrial hiding among us normal Homo sapiens. That is the best looking and totally realistic 3d garden I’ve ever seen to date! and showcased in a very cool way too. Way to go Marek!
A wonderful animation of Marina Nessebar by REDVERTEX. I’m a big fun of their work and this animation is probably the best I’ve seen coming from them.
Even so, the excessive use of DOF shift becomes really boring midway into the spot. The 2d people treatment is really clever and far better then using 3d people, but should have been introduced earlier in the animation…
And you got to love that Italian song setting the mood for it all!
What do you think!
