Strange Arrangements von weareseventeen

Freitag, 24. September 2010 16:37

Dieses sehr schicke Video ist mir die Tage begegnet und ich wollts euch unbedingt zeigen, weil ichs für wirklich sehr gelungen halte.
Wie der Titel schon sagt, seltsame Zusammenstellungen, aber was dahinter steckt, fassen weareseventeen so zusammen:

We wanted to make a series of moving sculptures that take inspiration from the great surrealists like dali and in particular his lobster telephone. We have tried to build intriguing objects that leave you wanting to see more. These objects are mechanical but at the same time organic in their movements. They are a collection of textures, objects and movements that create images that we wanted to see.

Die drei Jungs und das Mädel von weareseventeen haben uns noch ein kurzes Making Of zusammengeschnitten, das es hier gibt:
Making Of

Und noch in aller Kürze zu dem Kollektiv:

weareseventeen is a 4 man outfit (well, 3 men and 1 girl) based in london. We have been designing and making stuff move for 4 years now and have worked for clients like NBC Universal,, Toyota and a few others. We have a close relationship with the guys and girls over at Radium audio who we work with whenever we can.

TRIANGLE is a video work done for the book ‘Black Material’ which showcases Robert Knoke’s artwork.
Curator Jens Karlson asked me to make a short animation and get Robert Knoke’s black and white artwork as base for video. I chosed to create tense harmony between geometrical forms and organic movements. Combustion helped me to expand possibilites of Black material with his strong music and sound design.

Bad News – A Media Fiction (Diplom)

by Nico Uthe

Is it possible that the exclamation of the end of the world is able to provoke the apocalypse?

We are inside an american printery for newspaper in the 1950s now. A freshly printed newspaper comes to the fore. The headline proclaims the end of the world and pushes us straight towards the reports of the financial crisis of nowadays at the same time. The illustration of a comet, which is running down to the earth, intensifies the impression of the approaching end.

The film asks the question which consequences could be caused by information and news.
With regard to the financial crisis, the metaphor is a kind of an exaggerated persiflage: only the message of the apocalypse causes the end of the world – a self-fulfilling prophecy caused by the media!

The layout of the newspaper changes during the film parallel to the dramatic of the story.
The first reaction releases a visual chaos which develops while the film continues. An information flood takes the audience by surprise. Letters, words, graphics, illustrations, photo collage – the whole design collapses like an avalanche and is getting rebuild in the form of the comet, which is made of terms and graphical material.

Stop Motion in Werbetafelgröße für Olympus + Making Of und die Quelle der Inspiration

Montag, 20. September 2010 15:45

In diesem Spot für Olympus wurden 355 Fotos in Werbetafelgröße gedruckt und in der Stadt aufgestellt. Somit wird in Stop Motion Technik eine kleine Geschichte erzählt, ähnlich wie in dem Spot für Olympus vor einem Jahr. Sicherlich auch ein riesen Aufwand was die Logistik betrifft (siehe Making Of).
Nebenbei interessant an diesem Spot ist, dass Taijin Takeuchi Director für Stop Motion war. Das ist deswegen interessant, weil er der Macher des Spots “Stop Motion with Wolf and Pig” war, der den ersten Olympus Spot “The PEN Story” stark inspiriert hat, wie es das Team ausdrückt. Macht euch am Besten selbst ein Bild davon, die zwei Spots gibt es ganz unten.

Hier erstmal der neue Olympus Spot plus Making Of.

PEN Giant

PEN Giant – Making of

Übrigens bemerkenswert im Making Of, wie viel sogar hier Werbung für die Kamera gemacht wird, achtet mal darauf ;)

Und hier nun der Olympus Spot von letztem Jahr.
Sidefacts: We shot 60.000 pictures, developed 9.600 prints and shot over 1.800 pictures again. No post production!

The PEN Story

Diese Textpassage steht bei Youtube unter diesem Video:

“Some of the comments we have read here suggest that we should mention the creator of “A wolf loves pork”, Mr Taijin Takeuchi.
While we were looking for a way to realise a story describing “a journey through time” based on printed images, we were inspired by Mr Takeuchi’s brilliant work. For this reason we intentionally quoted his work in our little movie while showing full respect to his original idea. We didnt mention his name because we did not want to do so without his prior agreement.
However after considering some of the comments posted here we have decided to add credits to him and his work, which we obviously absolutely love.”

Aha.. das lass ich jetzt mal so stehen (was auch immer “full respect” bedeutet) und zeig euch noch das Original von Taijin Takeuchi:

Animationsfilm mit Sand und Making Of

Montag, 6. September 2010 22:37

Wahnsinn, was in diesem Video für Arbeit steckt. Ich hab ja auf Youtube schon mal den ein oder anderen Auftritt von einem “Sandkünstler” gesehen, in diesem Video bekommen wir allerdings einen gesamten Film geboten, Bild für Bild mit Sand animiert.
Und das Beste, Cesar Díaz, der Macher dieses Clips, stellt zusätzlich das Making Of online.

NO CORRAS TANTO Sand Animation
