Round 6 by Snowball Studios

March 8, 2010

Some guys from Snowball Studios did it: they produced a full CG short movie in 18 month within their spare time. The result is a cool looking 3:20 short that could open some doors into the gaming industry. The shader legend Master Zap says: Great Work. And yep, he’s right and whats also great ist the Round 6 production blog where they focus on shading, animation and how they put the whole thing together. Here is the contact sheet for Round 6.

February 17, 2010

It’s been a while that I’ve found the time to post here. But I have to freeze this collection for myself. It’s not a collection like the 101 Super Realistic CG Vehicles from CGTuts+… but in my opinion less is more. So here we go:

crynetsystems Nanosuit 2

September 13, 2009

i like the scifi look of the nanosuit that crytec is using for promoting the new crysis 2 game. On the crytec homepage it says that they won the red dot design award…  even if I wasn’t able to find any information on the red dot page about the nanosuit as a winner for 2009…

Google Chrome – Interactive Reaction

June 14, 2009

Google released the chrome browser and with this new application they run an information and add campaign titled as Google Chrome Shorts project.

The creative agency Imaginary Forces was invited to participate in the Google Chrome Shorts project.

Interactive Reaction 2009

With their short film they try to answers the question: What would the Internet look like if represented as a 3-Dimensional object? Observed as if in a museum, the object comes to life revealing the ins and outs of what Google Chrome has to offer.

The animation aims the look of a handheld camera. The google chrome logo itself is used as an information source and presentation medium. See the Interactive Reaction video on youtube.

War Zone – World made of words

May 8, 2009

The Hamburg agency optixdigital did a nice commercial where a world is build just with words. They show a battle field with helicopters, tanks, bombs and explosion… just by using words.

They label the add with the following words: “The global econnomy is a battlefield only who knows the language, will come on top!”

Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com

It would be nice to see how they would create a world just with words where love, peace and harmony are the main facts…

Red Bull F1 “Rip Through The Rule Book” by AixSponza

March 28, 2009

CG animation and formula one the second….
The german company AixSponza specialized in creating moving content has again developed a nice animation for Red Bull Racing to promote their new RB5 formula one racing car.

They also describe the changes to the racing rules like wider front and smaller rear spoiler, slicks and engine. It’s a classical playing with CG elements like:

  • car parts fly together to form the car
  • transformer like modifications on the body parts of the RB5
  • dynamic racing scenes

So nothing really new but nice to watch. It seems that they could reuse some of the CG elements which they created for Red Bull F1 “Let’s Do A Lap”.
I’ve embedded the video from vimeo. You can also directly watch it on the AixSponza homepage. I’ve also included the animation AixSponza did for the Singapore night race last year. (more…)

Formula One Promotion Video by Kotoc

March 27, 2009

The guys from Kotoc did a great formula one promotion teaser for the Spanish TV station lasexta. They put the formula one into a future far, far away from now. Formula one cars fly like pod racer from Star Wars. They fly, they fight, they shoot… But they still have the look of actual formula one cars … just without tires and pimped with turbines.

And here we have it again the pollinate chain reaction that Michel Gondry described with the words:

You see one object
which makes you
think of another
the two together is an idea

For my personal taste the campaign would have been also great without the shooting….

I’ve embedded all the available videos from the campaign within this post. Have fun watching it …. (more…)
