Steven Cheah VFX Reel 2012

Steven Cheah is for hire in Aus­tralia and updated his showreel with his works from 2010 to 2012. It’s very solid work, so get in touch if you’re look­ing for a tal­en­ted artist.

I don’t know if you’ve heard that Digital Domain wants to move away from VFX and into digital recre­ation of live per­form­ances of dead people. But this hasn’t happened yet and they’re still one of the lead­ing VFX-houses as you can see in this amaz­ing spot they cre­ated for a base­ball team (The Mets I guess? I’m not really into Base­ball). VFX-breakdown and link to the full spot after the jump.

Fantastic environments for Prince of Persia

Prince of Per­sia is another film I haven’t actu­ally seen, largely due to the fact that I value story and char­ac­ters more then spec­tacle now. I’ve heard the VFX in it were pretty good, though, and now I have found proof of this. MPC took care of the incred­ible semi-persian envir­on­ments of the movie, and they pulled out all the stops. The amount of detail and the sheer volume of the work is astounding.

More digital destruction from Russia

The video starts humble enought, but there’s some pretty sweet destruc­tion going on later. No sound, unfor­tu­nately. And it good East­ern European tra­di­tion there’s also no inform­a­tion on the artist what­so­ever. Enjoy.

Aus­tralian Alt. VFX  cre­ated this superb spot for Fox­tel. Check out how they seem­lessly merged foot­age of 8 ath­letes into one con­tinu­ous spot. The final clip is linked after the jump.

Renderflow

Render­flow, a rel­at­ively new render-service pro­vider, recently ran a testing-phase dur­ing which users of Blender’s GPU-accelerated Cycles ren­derer could try the ser­vice com­pletely free of charge. We imme­di­ately jumped at that chance with some of our work over at mar­crea and the res­ults were rather satisfactory.

Yet there’s only little inform­a­tion provided on Renderflow’s homepage so we decided to talk to them a bit about the ori­gins of the ser­vice, it’s cur­rent state and what they have planned for the future. Read on to get the whole picture …

MPC's VFX for the latest Harry Potter movie

Another superb break­down reel from MPC, this time for the latest and last Harry Pot­ter movie adap­tion. Nat­ur­ally their work is just flaw­less, but this time I’m sur­prised about how much stuff was actu­ally real.

Seh­sucht cre­ated a bril­liant spot for vacuum clean­ers by Vor­werk. They tell the story of the rise, fall, again rise and ulti­mately fall of the dust mites civil­iz­a­tion. This break­down reel shows just how much concept work and pre­pro­duc­tion was neces­sary to real­ize this ambi­tious concept.

Breathing life into a classic painting

Two artists from MPC have taken the clas­sic Dutch still life “Vase With Flowers in a Win­dow” from Golden Age mas­ter Ambrosius Boss­chaert the Elder and recre­ated it as a 3 hour long sequence tak­ing it through the times of day. It’s a fant­astic pro­ject and it was just about as much work as you’d expect. The break­down video tells the whole story. let me see »

Frutmotiv 2 - Making of

Beware, this is a rather long video. Rus­sian team ART DDS gives a com­pre­hens­ive look behind the mak­ing of the Frut­motiv 2 spot, and it’s funny and fas­cin­at­ing at the same time. They went from try­ing to shoot a ten­nis court to build­ing the whole envir­on­ment com­pletely digital. There’s a lot to learn here, watch­ing the team cope with rus­sian indoors, the cold and using the most eco­nomic means possible.
