Stina & the Wolf Cinematic Trailer

Great looking trailer for Stina & the Wolf. The animation work in this trailer is brilliant, I don’t think I’ve seen human movement in a cg film look this realistic. Can’t wait to see the full film.

BMW M4 – Ultimate Racetrack

Fantastic work by The Embassy on this piece. I’m not sure if it’s an advert for BMW or not but it’s very impressive nevertheless.

The Neighbourhood – Don’t believe the CGI

This might seem an odd thing to say from someone who is in the image business.

A few years ago on a family holiday, we booked a stay in a ‘beautiful’ Lake District cottage. In a time pre-google street view, the photographs of the property on the landlord’s website were all we had to go off, showcasing the beautiful setting and the idyllic coastal views. Only when we arrived at the cottage, did we find that all these photographs had been taken looking in one direction, so as to not include the nuclear power station dominating the view in the other!

Nissan – Almera Winter

Brilliant work by the team at One More for Nissan. Great vfx work and use of music.

One Of A Kind

Really interesting short film by the team at Trunk Animation. Like the design of the characters and animation, not exactly sure who they’re talking about.

Under Armour – Innovation

Okay so this is a bit different from what I usually post as there isn’t a lot of vfx until the end, but the use of music and cinematography is absolutely fantastic to the point where it invokes an emotional response. Amazing work by Andre Stringer and everyone else involved.

Taylor James – beIN SPORTS

Print and digital campaign for the rebranding of Sport Channel ‘Al Jazeera’ to ‘beIN Sports’. Taylor James handled all the sports photography, CGI integration and post production. The schedule was challenging but they were able to adapt their pipeline to fit the exact requirements and time the agency had, and the results are stunning. Here’s how they did it.
