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!

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.
