Abstractions - Streets at Lunch

12 frame abstractions from what normally happens at 12:00 noon, 5 unique GIFs generated from a larger body 15 second piece which is loop-able. Inspired by my love for abstract filmmakers like Stan Brakhage, and their use of light. Also re-inspired by Galen Johnson after reading his interview on Art of the Title (we had similar beginnings in Architecture).

If anyone reads this, you should take this class if you feel you could improve your animation skills. Its cheap enough and well worth it...Anyways today's render is brought to you by the person in your office who just won't SHUT UP!

Dear Google,

This short animation is a response to Google's release of their new logo and their animated GIF which I thought was interesting. Today is also the day when they decided Flash is browsers was no longer important...this day will go down in history. Anyway, exploring 2D animation over lunch, I decided to quickly throw this together. After I posted it, I realized the Google's original had the balls doing a follow through... maybe next time..... 

Here's something to wonder: If I mention Google one more time in my post, will my SEO rankings drop? I don't know, I guess I'll find out tomorrow, either way no one visits my site

Butter

Not sure how this started, but I was working with meatballs, to see how soft I could make something without actually making it soft...

Music and Architecture

I rarely, well never repost other articles, but having an Architecture background, and being driven by music, I thought this was a good read. 

It seeks to develop your understanding of spaces and time, and choreography and cinematography, metaphorically linking each. I do enjoy smashing two things together that are seemingly distant, and this article embodies that.

Sony Logo Ripoff

So i saw a Sony logo somewhere on the internet, and decided to rip it off in Cinema 4D. Im pretty sure this is super old and they may not use it anymore. Anyway, this is what 30 mins of work looks like haha.

Abstractions 1 - Cinema 4D

I have been getting a lot of love on insta and reddit http://redd.it/3bzu4d for this post, so I needed to throw it up here too. 

Created in Cinema 4d, post production in Photoshop, I  set out to create abstract art that was all robots, mechanical and post apocalyptic, or didnt consist of spheres or something that was obviously made in a 3d program. It needed to be able to occupy spaces in a gallery, in MoMa or the DMA or simply across someone's fireplace...So i ended up with this.

Purple Stuff

Testing out the cloner and orientation properties again, so I can try to solve a problem I had a few months ago on a project that went dormant. I figured out the solution, so time to go apply it to that project. Anyway, this image came out of the tests, so Im throwing it up on the blog...its purple.

Club Football

Conceptually this began as a sci-fi football/soccer room which would be developed for a logo. I then decided the lighting would be better if it had daylight. Took it into Photoshop, 10 minute composite and color correct...Still I might use this as a scene in the future. #Jam4d

Rendering fur is tricky, you have to get the lighting, and camera just right, or it just seem fake. Also picking the right lighting and then of course Ambient occlusion is also necessary
