HUMANITY – the Global Crack

Posted by laidlow on May 26, 2010 | No comments

I wanted to play around with the new X Breaker plugin for Cinema 4D and needed some words to set up the animation. Googled up a random words generator and the first word that came up was “humanity”. cool… second line, “Global Crack”. Hmmm. well, yeah. duh! true! Humanity is the global crack. we’re so hooked on ourselves and we are so our own demise!

War Dance

Posted by laidlow on April 29, 2010 | No comments

Here’s a little animation I worked on with Nadav Ben Israel, the video scientist of 900m Productions. A video we did for the Vision 04 project. Basically, a bunch of video artists all used the same footage, all filmed inside the Tel Aviv apartment of this old gay belly dancer, and did their own twist on it. We rolled up and went far out. Nadav got a hold of the blue prints of the dancer’s apartment and I rebuilt it in 3D and then Nadav sat next to me and directed the camera walk through. Each footage that sits on the walls is taken for its respective place in the apartment. Nadav’s idea was to turn this into a video game looking piece, and the sub is that all wars starts at home. While this gay belly dancer is happily dancing away in is little home, the war is raging outside.

Check it out in HD though.

Google Street Views Stop Motion Animation

Posted by laidlow on December 10, 2009 | No comments

This little clip is done by taking fullscreen snapshots in Google Maps Street View (i found a car and followed it down the streets of New York), and throwing them all into After Effects and add a little warp between the frames. A funky way of stop motion blending.

Potential Disclaimer/Acclaimer:

I don’t know if it’s legal to hit the FNCT button+Print Screen in Windows Vista while looking at Google Maps Street View in full screen  and then hitting CTRL+V in Adobe Photoshop and importing it all as an image sequence into Adobe After Effects and applying Timewarp effect for the layer of the imported footage, adding some TrapCode Shine, Cartoon filter and exporting it as a .mov Apple Macintosh file and uploading it to Google YouTube, with the music/soundtrack i did myself in Propellerheads Reason. But if it is, then, here it is!!!

Yalla! Sulcha! Hummus anyone?!

and if it’s not, then we have to ask ourselves; why not?
Thanks to the people at Google and its ilk, who made you find this, who let you read what i just wrote… trip out ey! Go Google!

Biomedia Homepage

Posted by laidlow on July 28, 2009 | No comments

Just finished coding Biomedia‘s homepage. It came out pretty cool. It uses an HTML menu generated from a CMS and communicates with the Flash through Javascript. If you’re using Internet Exploder you will have to click on the Flash part to switch the focus to it (retarded browser) (there’s no work around for this “security measure” by Microsoft… just horrible… if you’re using the internet more than 5 minutes a day, get a real browser, like Google Chrome ;) or Firefox). The scroll wheel is the main action in this website (if you’re not using Internet Exploder).

Levana is Live

Posted by laidlow on May 17, 2009 | No comments just went live.

This is an e-commerce site i built for Levana Music Equipment (I only did the coding and video. Graphic design by titi) If you’re a guitarist, any kind of guitarist, you seriously need to get the effect pedal “the E.Q. Booster”. Believe you me, you will not regret it. The maker of these fine custom equipments, Perry Attia, just got signed to Studio Blue in Las Vegas, who are starting to mass produce his stuff. This shit is gonna blow up man!

A Study in Speed Dependent Particles

Posted by laidlow on March 16, 2009 | No comments

The Particular plugin starts emitting particles only when the pixels/second of the logo goes over 200 p/s, and then the amount and fly-out speed of the particles depend on the speed that the logo is moving at, using a simple expression like:

S = thisComp.layer("Text").transform.positio n.speed;
if(S > 200){
} else {

After Effects Shadow Study

Posted by laidlow on March 12, 2009 | No comments

A study of shadow projections in After Effects. The fence, hand and logo text are all keyed layers placed way behind the camera and in front of a light source, and then projected onto the stage, which holds a still image of a wall, with particles of smoke and dust catching a hard light. Sound effects were sampled from my squeaky front door and other objects laying around and edited and twisted in Cubase.

Imaginary Albums by Imaginary Bands

Posted by laidlow on February 23, 2009 | No comments

This is a cool little “brainstorming” game/exercise my friend Navit got me hooked on. It was past 2am and i’d just finished working, and was checking my emails, when one of those annoying mails from facebook saying i was tagged in some photo album. Curiously i went to see what who-ever it was wrote about me. Instead i see a big square image, looking like an album cover, with the following text below…

To Do This *game* :
1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 – Post it to FB with this text in the “caption” and TAG the friends you want to join in. (you can untag yourself if you don’t want this photo up)

In this photo: [names disclosed]

I got stuck till 3.30am, making 3 different album covers… yawn…

I Just Quite My Day Job!!!

Posted by laidlow on January 1, 2009 | No comments


Finally, i quit my job at! Even though i had a blast working there in the studio, i just couldn’t take the whole 9-5 thing anymore. i was stupid enough to give it one more chance this last summer, but I should’ve known better. i’m just not the office type of guy.

Today i’m starting up my freelancing career again, but this time for real. Starting up under a new umbrella label called DREAMYARD. Soon there’ll be a site at (if I’ll have the time, hehe). Under this new company i’m putting up everything i’m doing as a graphic/video artist under my tag name LAIDLOW and also my musical stuff, under my old nickname ROBIYH (talk about being schizophrenic, but…).
