Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

If you're an active Vine user, you've probably seen some of Dylan Blau's incredible work. The 20-year-old stop-motion animator is famous for making extraordinary CGI-free Vine videos, often with basic material like clay and paper.

The Jockstrap Raiders. By Mark Nelson (19:05)

Posted by Jennifer Wolfe on February 14, 2013 • 

 

"Jockstrap Raiders, the animated short film by UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television MFA student Mark Nelson, is now available in its entirety for viewing online.

The CG-animated short has received numerous awards, including the Silver Medal for animation at the 2012 Student Academy Awards.

 

Five years in the making, the 19-minute film takes place during World War I in Leeds, England, where a group of underdog misfits are excluded from the war due to various abnormalities. Threatened by the invading German Kaiser and his army, they must learn to become a team and overcome their deficiencies in order to save Britain, and the world.

Sixense sells the program as an evolution in 3D modeling interfaces, a chance to step back from the complicated, menu-laden CAD programs modelers use today and replace them with a more natural interface.

Machinima: How brands are making films within games

Machinima: How brands are making films within games | Machinimania | Scoop.it

"Creating movies from within computer games may sound like something best left to teenage boys, but the art of machinima, making animated films from within the real-time 3-D 'engine' of a video game, is proving anything but says Aaron Martin, Collective London's head of strategy" ...


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Seeing the opportunity, EA commissioned Stoneman to create a piece of machinima that showcased the new downloadable content while paying homage to those "Only in Battlefield" moments.

The resulting short movie quickly became one of the most effective pieces of content EA has produced, generating more than 765,000 views and 25,000 likes without even as much as a sponsored post in media support. EA’s campaign for 'Battlefield 3' garnered them the top spot in the newly released Social Brands 100 for 2013.

Juan Carlos Burgon's curator insight, June 17, 2013 3:21 PM

I think in this times of life videogames are openning the doors for new types of filmaking by giving them chances to start producing about new topics and types of themes that are related to life and to actual information that would be great for editing and producing films, they would be magical, or of action, drama and they will have too many kind of brilliant acts to show
