Greetings Aliveasart readers! It’s been a while since we’ve posted, and even longer since we’ve updated our collection of experimental motion graphics. We have some great short films for your viewing pleasure today. Enjoy them, and have a great Friday!
1Reulf by Charlesque
In a black and white Parisian backdrop, miniature artists get down and dirty to brighten up the European city. A true joy to watch, Reulf is student project created at the University of Paris. If you are curious, the music composed by Robert le Magnifique and Olivier Mellano.
2World Builder by Bruce Branit
Ladies – if you’re smitten and keep thinking to yourself, “is there is anything my man can’t do”, check out World Builder, and then get back to me. In this off-beat short film, a mystery man builds an entirely new world for the woman he loves. I don’t know about you, but anyone who can do that earns major points in my book. This award-winning piece is the brainchild of Bruce Branit, also known as the co-creator of the notorious ‘405’. World Builder was shot in just one day – unbelievable!
3Scintillation by Xavier Chassaing
Scintillation is a unreal film, created with 35,000 photographs and a combination of live projection mapping techniques. What I find most impressive about this short is that fact that producer Xavier Chassaing had neither the facilities nor the financial backing that a typical commercial film requires. Here is what Chassaing told MotionGrapher about the creation of Scintillation. This took some talent. Yep, it did.
What I have was an apartment, a small DSLR camera, a small computer and a small videoprojector. I also made a contraption who looks like a motion control but with the particularity of moving extremely slow who allowed me to take sequences of pictures with long exposure. (1frame per second, with 1 second of exposure). Even the best camera can not compete with this kind of sensitivity if they shoot at normal speed. So, I did everything myself from the 3d animation that I project on object, building the machine, the editing etc..
