I rented an apartment through AirBB near in the old Jewish Cemetery in Zizkov. For as long as I can remember I have been a fan of Cemeteries and the one in Zizkov out of all of them is the most hypnotic.
Other than sleeping or working on big budget films like Wonderwoman or Allied this is the place were I spent most of my time.
Cemeteries have that timeless nature that reminds us of our own mortality. All the great, wise, talented people that occupy these spaces once had thoughts and worries. Just like living.
I returned from Prague in the Spring. Leaving Zizkov and it’s dead to rest in peace.
For the last four months I’ve been working on the Showtime TV Series Penny Dreadful currently shooting it’s 3rd season at Ardmore Studios, Bray Ireland. I’m in the VFX department working with Supervisor James Cooper and much of my work has been under NDA so I can’t really post much, until the show airs that is …
I came across the example above with a youTube search. I don’t know much about the creator but it looks to my eye to be fully created in After Effects. it is unlikely that any 3D models were used are some particle effects and likely stock footage elements.
GO DIGITAL HEALTH
A very clean example. It looks to have been created using After Effects with the plug in SURE TARGET. It relies heavily on illustrated vector elements. Apart from the tedious music it’s not bad work. It does get a little tedious, illustrating how important it is to change up the tricks you use to keep the viewer interested.
RTE ROAD TO THE RISING
This isn’t exactly a timeline, but it is a great example of making old photography come alive . This piece of music is also great and they’re is nice sound design and over all graphic treatment and great use of minimal stock footage like birds, nicely done.
BAND OF BROTHERS
This is some of my work from my time at 1K Studios in sunny California. Not exactly a timeline per say, it was created using static photography with place holders for photographs. The camera moves and moving images in the picture frames were add in post with After Effects. Lots of work went into Props and lighting for this animation and that is were the majority of the time was spent. The Art Director and Animator was the mega talented HIDEO IGAWA.
This is a much more complex, with heavy use of full 3D CGI models, sound design and documentary style footage, it’s quite brilliant created by the PIC, if you want to know more check this great article at THE ART OF THETITLE
WIKILEAKS: WE STEAL SECRETS
With heavy use of particle systems this is an eye catching timeline of sorts. Similar to The Kingdom you also have great use of video footage threaded through the sequence. You also notice how important music is for setting the tone of a piece. Find out more here THE ART OF THE TITLE
As a model maker in the 3D realm I find this story fascinating. ‘Elgin Park is a lot of things: a 1950’s utopia, a fantastical world, and an optical illusion. Artist Michael Paul Smith’s imaginative town – composed entirely of miniatures.’
