Some creative pieces that I've come across the past few months that are, well, noteworthy.
Two pieces of work that are pretty darn impressive.
First up, The Mill's work for The Chemical Brothers Wide Open video. It's just amazing.
Next up, is a miso soup ad from Japan. I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that a soup ad exists that is better then anything in my portfolio. Any way, it's epic so enjoy.
Great safety video for Melbourne railway operator Metro.
Taking a break from the usual flying 3D logos to bring you a project I wrapped up last week while at Brandspank, an ad for SKY TV's Android app. It was an interesting project to work on, involving keying, tracking, and a bit for 3D for some of the character movements and phones but my proudest moment has to be the fingernail replacement around the 10 second mark Putting that on the CV!
I recently saw this ad on BBC World. It seems being rich is a lot more whimsical than I imagined.
Pretty good ad for the Samsung Galaxy SII, but I've got my eyes on the Samsung Nexus.
Fantastic video for IBM's 100th anniversary.
A quick post for a fantastic ad by Fiat USA for the new Fiat 500.
New global ad from Adidas directed by Romain Gavras featuring the new single 'Civilization' by Justice.
Two cards ads, two very different treatments. Not sure if one ad is better then the other. The Chrysler is one heck on a way to have a brand represent so much more than the product being sold. The VW ad, well, just makes you smile. In any case two very good ads well worth watching.
Chrysler "Imported From Detroit"
VW "The Force"
Very creative use of high speed footage. Shot with a Phantom v640 High Speed Camera at 1920 x 1080 at 2700 fps.
An interesting mix of film making and advertising, reminds me a bit of the shorts put out by BMW a few years ago (in terms of quality/production value). This was interesting enough that I will forgive the Philips TV product placement (they did pay for this so it seems fair). This is now in the process of being turned into a feature film, shocking.
This is one of five shorts that are part of a campaign called Parallel Lines, you can view the other film over at www.cinema.philips.com.
Maybe the only way I can get behind the wheel of a Ferrari F1 car any time soon...
A nice little piece by Imaginary Forces for Google's Chrome web browser.
So I recently came across two very interesting pieces of video, both essentially created to advertise new products but both interesting to watch.
First up is a demo reel from I-Movix to showcase their SprintCam V3HD that was recently announced at NAB. This broadcast native HD camera can capture ultra-slow-motion solution offering frame rates of 500 to 1,000 fps with instant replay.
Next up is a really well executed piece for Philips to show case their new lince of ultra wide screen tvs. Check out the official site for the full experience but you can get a preview from the YouTube clip below.
This is what the world may have been like for us today...
This Visa ad currently running in Australia should help us all appreciate the sophistication of the technology we all carry around in our pockets each day.
