4K didn’t happen in 2014. Will things look different in 2015?

4K didn’t happen in 2014. Will things look different in 2015? | Machinimania | Scoop.it
A show here, a few dozen movies there: 4K fare is still sparse on streaming services. Next year, things may be different — if the industry doesn’t mess it up.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

One of the problems with 4K is that it’s more expensive to produce and distribute movies in the format, while studios aren’t really convinced yet that they can make that much more money with the format.

London Grammar - Maybe - Animation: A Shadow of Blue - YouTube

Another great song from London Grammar, This song "Maybe" is at their first album called "If you wait". A deluxe edition contains seventeen tracks. See also:...
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

The music was extended to finished at the same point the amazing animation "The shadow of the Blue" who was directed by Carlos Lascano.

Here is a little history of this short:

There she is: little and fragile, on her blue dress, as blue as her eyes.

It is cloudy, yet she is sitting on a bench at the park, watching the world around: the playground, the trees, the people passing by...

Some butterflies start flitting around her, inviting her to play with them. She picks a glossy paper from her school case and folds it into another butterfly, this one bright and blue, to swing it among its imaginary friends.

Suddenly, a naughty gust of wind seizes her butterfly away, high above, blowing her illusion to the unreachable tree tops.

The sun comes through the foliage, casting the shadows of the world. She sees herself cast on the ground and smiles: her long, long legs would now allow her to catch her butterfly. As going after it, she finds herself having fun on the playground, climbing trees, running across the park... and leading us through different visions of the same reality, blurring the boundaries between the fantastic and the real world..

How determining can reality be, and how can fantasy unleash an unexpected freedom?

Director: Carlos Lascano

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

iClone has been built from the ground up as an essential tool for quick animation production. There is no other application in the industry that can deliver the speed, customization, flexibility and versatility of iClone. Real-Time Animation, sometimes called Machinima, is filmmaking within a real-time 3D virtual environment, often used in 3D video-game technologies. Because real-time animation can be shot live or scripted in real-time, this allows it to be much faster to produce than traditional CGI animations. This webinar will guide you through the major production procedure in iClone to create an animated video.
