I really like this music video made by ohyeahwow.

I really love these mind bending idents from ManvsMachine for 4seven.

Good Books International

This slick animation was created by Brookyln-based Antfood for online bookseller Good Books International that donates 100% of its profits to Oxfam.

Only The Brave Foundation

Some really nice motion graphics but more importantly a great idea!

Rome – 3 Dreams of Black

I really like the potential of WebGL and here is on display (best in Crome)

Oslo LUX 2011

Looking forward to this. I remember when squid soup used to be the pioneers of director based gaming. At the intersections of light, space and interaction :: one day seminar :: 21st January 2011

Coalition of the Willing

I thought this collaboration needed a mention – stunning diverse animations. Coalition of The Willing is a film that discusses how we can use new internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change.

Tiananmen Square parade

Stumbled on the great footage whilst browsing on vimeo. A really nice selection of shots showing timelaps and slow motion. Nice to see what these canon camera’s can do!

Eyjafjallajokull

Simply stunning footage of the volcano from Iceland by Sean Stiegemeier. Nice relevant music as well from Jón Þór Birgisson Sigur Rós

Visuelt 2010

I just spent two days here in Oslo at a seminar called visuelt with the theme of fast forward//rewind.
Overall I thought the first day was the best! Eike K√∂nig from Hort based in Germany gave a very honest and inspiring story of the history of his studio. Joel Lewis from www.hellicarandlewis.com and www.yesyesno.com was very enthused about all new ways of interaction and projection based technology. Siggi Eggertsson from Iceland had his whole speech in a computer voice (very strange!) – not to say his illustration work wasn’t interesting. One more worth mentioning is Joshua Hirsch from Big Spaceship – he talked a lot about making real time for personal projects within his company. I am now officially inspired! See a comprehensive overview here!

Data visualization

There’s been a lot in the world of motion of late to do with data visualization. I think there is something very interesting about taking real-world data and creating art out of it. Onedotzero Festival Identity is a nice example of using tweets to create a nice looking bit of motion. To gather current data (of even real time) that means nothing to most people and then transform it into something that has more meaning to your average joe blog. I really enjoyed the following examples… especially in light of the recent European ash storm!

PIXELS

Here is really nice motion piece by onemoreproduction that creatively references some of the classic games in history.

Adobe Photoshop Cook

Very clever stopmotion Lait Noir. If only it was for real!

Thought I would share this amazing Macro universe by clemento.

Qube Konstrukt

Simon Bronson

I remember working with Simon back in the see.com.au days. Stumbled across his fantastic work.

Tiltshift photography

I know its the new latest cool thing, but I just can’t get enough of it.
Here

I really like the feel of this time lapse stuff from uniqlo

Film titles unearthed!

I’ve always had a keen interest in title’s for feature films.This site and this post show a great selection of some excellent title sequence. Enjoy!

I thought this was worth a mention for it’s great navigation and clear presentation…like the sheep!

Breathtaking Typography!

I thought this was a great link. I am really growing in appreciation for great uses of typography.

RA DIOHEA_D / HOU SE OF_C ARDS

In Radiohead’s new video for House of Cards from the album In Rainbows, no cameras or lights were used. Just data. Amazing!

Google Code is hosting the Data Visualization
application and providing an iGoogle gadget. Explore the data through a
3D viewer and use your mouse to further manipulate the data and create
your own visualizations.

This interactive piece was made by Aaron Meyers and Aaron Koblin using a modified version of PV3D. For more info click here.
