Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Since then he’s kept busy and won the 2012 Chase Bank Enablis ILO Business Launchpad competition – pitting him against brick and mortar businesses and a host of competitors, RECON Digital also closed investment and as part of their growth plan took on 6 apprentices for a 9 month apprenticeship that would culminate in the production of a body of work for the young animators.

Unlike other superheroes’ emblems, which really don’t serve much of a purpose outside of adorning their costumes, the Caped Crusader’s iconic logo has a vital function: When shining on the skies above Gotham, the silhouette alerts Batman that it’s time for action.

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.

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

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Digital art allows us to experiment with all sorts of compositions. We have seen quite a lot of styles from surreal to sci-fi/light effects. There are some ideas, however, that are truly amazing. One in particular that has inspired us most is the Jan Matejko Battle of Grunwald - an impeccable example of how to reconstruct a painting from the Romantic era in 3D. Today's post shines a spotlight on this incredible project done by Platige Image.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Watch all the movies by clicking above.

 

The Sundance Film Festival has announced their short film selections for the next edition of the festival, which will take place January 17-27 in Park City, Utah. The following ten films will compete in the animated shorts category:

Benjamin’s Flowers / Sweden (Director and screenwriter: Malin Erixon) — Lovelorn and lonely Benjamin lives on the blurry borderline between fantasy and reality.

Bite of the Tail / South Korea, U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Song E Kim) — Life is a constant struggle for a husband and wife. She is suffering from stomach pain, and the doctor has no clue about a cure. Meanwhile, her husband is on his own journey of hunting a snake.

The Event / U.S.A., United Kingdom (Director: Julia Pott, Screenwriter: Tom Chivers) — Love and a severed foot at the end of the world.

Feral / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Daniel Sousa) — A solitary hunter finds a wild boy in the woods and brings him back to civilization. Alienated by his strange new environment, the boy tries to adapt by using the same strategies that kept him safe in the forest.

In Hanford / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Chris Mars) — This heartbreaking true story of a town poisoned by Cold War–era nuclear-arms manufacture is told through firsthand accounts and fantasy scenes, which empathize with the victim’s plight.

Marcel, King of Tervuren / U.S.A. (Director: Tom Schroeder, Screenwriter: Ann Berckmoes) — In this Greek tragedy – as acted out by Belgian roosters – Marcel survives the bird flu, alcohol, sleeping pills and his son, Max.

Oh Willy… / Belgium, France, Netherlands (Directors and screenwriters: Marc James Roels, Emma De Swaef) — Willy returns to his naturalist roots as he bungles his way into noble savagery.


Seraph / U.S.A. (Director: Dash Shaw, Screenwriters: John Cameron Mitchell, Dash Shaw) — A boy’s childhood scars his life.

Thank You / U.S.A. (Directors: Pendleton Ward, Tom Herpich, Screenwriters: Pendleton Ward, Tom Herpich) — A pack of fire wolves attack a snow golem in the forest and accidentally leave a cub behind after their retreat. The golem’s life is thrown into chaos as he attempts to reunite the cub with its family.

Tram / France, Czech Republic (Director and screenwriter: Michaela Pavlátová) — The humdrum daily routine of a tram conductress is jolted when the vibrations and rhythm of the road turn her on and take her on an erotic and surrealistic fantasy journey.

Their documentary shorts category also features two shorts with animation:

 

30% (Women and Politics in Sierra Leone) / United Kingdom, Sierra Leone (Director: Anna Cady) — Oil-painted animation brings to life the stories of three powerful women in postconflict Sierra Leone, revealing the violence and corruption women face as they fight for fairer representation in the governance of their country.

Irish Folk Furniture / Ireland (Director: Tony Donoghue) — In Ireland, old hand-painted furniture is often associated with hard times, with poverty, and with a time many would rather forget. In this animated documentary, 16 pieces of traditional folk furniture are repaired and returned home.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Besides being a mind teaser, "Jack Reacher" offers the muscular thrills of a `70s action flick, including fight scenes that mercifully aren't over-edited messes and a thrilling, prolonged car chase through the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, with the grinding and screeching providing its own rhythmic soundtrack. Cruise dials down the megawatt charisma and instead relies on a no-nonsense world-weariness which has its own appeal. He also has a dryly funny give-and-take with Robert Duvall, his "Days of Thunder" co-star, as the gun range owner who becomes.......click the picture for the full story.
