I really want one of these.
Here is an animation I did for Kurzweil Education to highlight the use of one of their products in higher education. For some reason they liked my scratch voice track and decided to use my voice in the final piece.
This is such an intriguing idea. Take a look and contribute here if you think it sounds as promising as I do.
As a video editor and motion designer Art of the Title is one of the sites I frequent for inspiration (although it often leaves me feeling like a total hack). Their latest post, Goldtooth Creative’s slick title sequence for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a video game, is a fascinating look at creative process. The interviews with Paul Furminger from Goldtooth Creative (director of the sequence) and Jean-François Dugas from Eidos-Montreal take us from original concept and sketches through various CG render passes and live action shooting to final product. And while there is a great deal to absorb and learn from this article, I must admit that the tipping point for me was seeing the title sequence for “The Six Million Dollar Man,” posted as one of their visual references (It’s all the way at the bottom). Suddenly I was seven years old again.
This feature length documentary is essential viewing for anyone who creates art using digital tools. I found it inspiring and uplifting as well as maddening.
If you get around to watching please leave me a comment. I’d love to hear what you think.
From the film’s vimeo page:
“The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.
But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out?”
