100 Hours: The ultimate video training resource for artists

Really like this idea, 100 hours of videos from well know 3D artists. I hope you guys all get the time to checkout the video and back the project.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Story Trailer – I Am Faith

Don’t know what it is they’re doing at DICE but I’d love to know how they got Frostbite to look this good. Can’t wait to get back into the colourful world of Mirror’s Edge.

Jean-Paul Gaultier | Welcome to the Factory

Very cool vfx work on this advert for Jean-Paul Gaultier by Dvein. Love seeing the personification of these iconic perfume bottles.

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS

Oooh this looks interesting, a kind of serious Pixar style film. Also never see a CG film by Focus Features before so this makes it even more interesting.

Jim Beam “Look Inside”

Great visual effects and simulation work by the team at Fin Design + Effects. Never actually heard of Jim Bean before. Guess it’s just an American thing?

The Chemical Brothers – Wide Open ft. Beck

Brilliant work by the Mill on the visual effects for this Chemical Brothers music video. The cloth work is what impresses me the most. I can’t tell the difference between the live action and 3D cloth.

Caminandes 3: Llamigos – Blender Animated Short

Great work on the Blender Foundation on the latest episode of Caminandes. Continually impressed by all the work that has been done with this free 3D software.

Tom Clancy’s The Division: Agent Origins (Conspiracies)

Great piece for Ubisoft’s The Division by Rocket Jump.

Trexton | Sci-Fi | Proof of Concept

Really interesting trailer directed and production by Kobayashi. I know this is just a concept, but it would be really interesting to see what this would look like if it were a full feature film.

New Chinatown

Great visualisation piece by the guys at Uniform on their work for Liverpool’s Chinese chinatown renovation. It’s impressive how photorealistic some of these scenes look.
