This really made me smile. A beautifully executed 3D short film directed by Nicolas Deveaux featuring high board diving Giraffe’s. Paris based Cube Creative marks a decade in business with this magical and architecturally stunning film named for the average height of its stars. This film follows on from Nicolas’s previous film 7 Tonnes 3 which features a trampolining elephant.
Matt Pyke’s latest work at Universal Everything for Hyundai is absolutely stunning. The Creators Project has done a short documentary about Matt’s work (above), showing how Universal Everything works together as a team and what drives their creativity. It’s a great insight into how they create such beautiful motion graphics work.
These are an amazing set of Motorsport videos produced by an anonymous editor ‘Mattzel89‘. They feature super slow motion shots put together into an evocative video sequence. If you’re a fan of cars and Motorsport they’re a must see.
Our local expert in architectural photography Paul Raftery has collaborated with director Dan Lowe to create a timelapse film showing the final weeks of construction of The Shard tower in London. It was shot over many long days during the early months of 2012, from locations spanning from Greenwich Park to Hampstead Heath.
The way the building sits in the London landscape and responses to the ever-changing London weather became a central theme, to the extent that we decided that we would frame The Shard centrally in every shot so as to emphasise its form and shape.
My work shooting architecture meant I had a pretty good idea of the best viewpoints and in some cases access to high points in London already arranged. That was a great help – but still the process was painstaking! Slowly through many hours of shooting and waiting for the right weather we started to get some workable footage.
We have been working closely with Victoria Lambert to develop her new journalism website Under the Scope. Today the website has launched alongside the publication of news articles and videos. The above video is a short introduction of what the website is all about. Work included the development of branding for Under the Scope, video graphics and the design and build of a CMS based website integrated with social media.
“UndertheScope.co.uk combines researched, thoughtful articles and blogs by award-winning health journalist Victoria Lambert with contributions from medics, parliamentarians, psychologists, young journalists and great writers. Tackled with forensic zeal, issues covered range from pure medicine to the health of our society.”
We’ve recently been working with INK to develop their online identity and launch a CMS website to feature their latest work. INK are a London based studio that use digital illustration and animation to tell stories and bring ideas to life. Posted above is their recent CG film for Silverstone Race Circuit to promote the new pit, paddock and race facilities.
“We use digital illustration and animation to capture the atmosphere and emotion of an idea, space or event. INK is a digital workshop where what we create defines our studio.“
The videos shot for Mutiny bikes by Joe Simon are great. A combination of stunningly shot video (including super8 and 5DmkII) and crazy riding skills in breathtaking locations. They’ve just got a really nice feel to them that make you want to get on your bike. It’s funny when you look at Joe Simon’s main work shooting weddings, a real contrast in content but the same beautiful aesthetic.

We’ve been working on the Star Wars branding with Locutio Voice Technologies and Lucas Film for the Yoda voice product launch. To coincide with the product launch TomTom have created a new viral video deployed on YouTube. The video features Yoda in the recording studio delivering his lines for the GPS, quite funny. Dagobah!
adidas has teamed up with Lucas Film to push their Star Wars Originals collection. They’ve just released this two minute advert which features Snoop Dogg, Daft Punk, David Beckham, Jay Baruchel, Ciara, and Noel Gallagher in the Mos Eisley Cantina Scene from Star Wars. Snoop Dogg reaching for his Light Sabre is definitely one thing I thought I’d never see! The advert doesn’t feature any trainers, just a few instances of the Adidas logo on T-shirts. See the video over the fold.
