#wip character design
the experiments with 12 continue. Colour palettes and lighting has been the main focus for this round.
Further experiments with the 12 ident. Natron is starting to become the weapon of choice over After effects, especially in motion graphics.
12 work in progress on upcoming ident.
We've recently been streamlining the studio, especially where production kit is involved. We've designed and installed all of our own nifty 3d printed storage items.
Just designed and printed some nice little desk tidy
Back to pencils for some design ideas for a few upcoming projects.
Our #3dprint is its final stages of production and heading to Belfast this weekend. Projection mapping done, it comes to life on Sunday! #3dprinter #3dprinting #3dprojectionmapping #3d #projectionmapping #art #artdirection #creativedirection #design #itsliverpool #skyline
These are some early experiments for a new project which comes under our new People & Pixels banner, www.peopleandpixels.uk. Xparticles has been used in conjunction with sculpted geometry to create transitions in live action between actor & cg. Eventually we aim to 3d print the particles into physical objects, small LED's placed at the base of the models will illuminate the translucent 3d print material.
Containers printed... Project details soon.
People & Pixels is entire new division of sparkle which is set to launch in the Summer 0f 2017. Pixels & People is all about collaboration, bringing together the best creatives to produce high end brand films. These are some of the assets we've been making for the launch reel. www.peopleandpixels.uk
The labs been quiet for the past week or so... because we've been getting hands on with the big build. Our experiments in 3D printing have come to an end and now its time to 3D the actual project.. (more details soon).. but first we needed to build a prototype projection rig to project down onto the 3D prints... the task is still on going this week, hoping to get some first projections out early next week. We're capturing the entire 8 week long process using the Syrp Genie for time-lapse.
Few stills from today's shoot in Lancaster. Successful day with *topsecret band on your screens in the next few months . Using the drone indoors is amazing and terrifying!
We've made sure we're committed to our new years resolutions and invested further in our DJI setup purchasing there Zenmuse X5R. Initial tests have stood up really well, it a very exciting piece of kit which will add further quality to productions through out the year. X5S with the Inspire 2 is on the horizon, just waiting for it to land in the UK (pun intended!)
This wont be the last of the 3D print tests!! all starting to come together.
First test appeared today, next step getting it ready for some projection mapping. Really impressed with the 3D printer, so far its been really easy to take models from Cinema 4D straight into the printers bespoke 3D printing software.
New project that starts on Monday involves some serious 3D printing!! We're just starting out with some tests to get it warmed up.. once we're done we'll be involving some animation, lights and sound! We'll be posting lab test as soon as we get them!
This project is about to 'Bloom'... elements being pruned and arranged before we reveal its full extent next week. Quite a challenging project due to high poly counts and building size renders!
We've just acquired some new kit for filming .. quick test drive for major new project starting next week. Looking up is the theme... very impressed with new lenses from DJI.
