Stella Artois interactive website

About: The new Stella Artois site is divided into 5 mini games (End of the World, Dangers of the Forrest, Wrath of Gods, Battle of Good vs Evil, The Setting Sun), all of them with fantastically executed motion video content. The website is a bit heavy but certainly worthy of a few minutes of your time.

Bermuda Shorts

Bermuda Shorts was founded in 1990 by Trevor Murphy. It was the first animation company to pioneer the concept of representing individual directors to bring their specific vision to projects rather than just providing a technical service. Experimentation on short films and pop promos creates innovative ideas that feed into highly distinctive commercial work, which in turn enables the creative work to continue. Any project whether a TV title, a short live action drama, concert visuals or TV series, is a unique opportunity to explore and innovate in the Directors style.

A network of state of the art desktop computer technology enables directors to work quickly and intuitively with teams of artists in an ever evolving range of styles, keeping all aspects of production in-house.

Bermuda is continually expanding its Directors roster and today it exclusively represents styles and techniques ranging from 3D (CGI), stop frame, traditional 2D, treated live action, photo montage, After Effects and Flash Animation.

The Studio's reputation for award-winning commercial work attracts such clients as Volkswagen, Orange, Bayer, Kraft, Budweiser, Proctor & Gamble, Coca Cola, American Express, Nestle, MTV, BBC and The Fox Network.

With their techniques and creative talent Bermuda continues to expand the boundaries of animation across all forms of media.

About cityshrinker: You see amazing things every day. It could be out the window of the train on your way to work, it could be in your back yard, even better it could be somewhere completely foreign, something you didnt know existed. My aim is to give that feeling of newness with each shot I take. My method is to take what was once large and shrink it down to model size. To take the familiar and get you thinking even if for a second "wait a minute, is that..."

Pangea Day: Can your film change the World?

About the project:

Here's a big idea: Pangea Day plans to use the power of film to bring the world a little closer together. We're divided by borders, race, religion, conflict... but most of all by misunderstanding and mistrust. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that -- to help people see themselves in others -- through the power of film.

On May 10, 2008 -- Pangea Day -- sites in Cairo, Dharamsala, Jerusalem, Kigali, London, New York City, Ramallah and Rio de Janeiro will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music. The program will be broadcast live to the world through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.

Your film could be part of it. The online video revolution has helped spawn a new generation of grass-roots film-makers worldwide. Much of the output, of course, is mediocre. But hidden in there are amazing talents capable of using film to astonishing effect... and capable of telling stories that can create powerful bonds between us.

So ask yourself this. If you had the entire world's attention for just a few minutes, what story would you tell? Perhaps you think the world looks at you, your country and your culture... and just doesn't understand. Then do something about it. Make a film and upload it here You never know. It could end up bringing millions of people that bit closer together.

Pangea is the name of the original super-continent which contained all the world's land mass before the continents started splitting apart 250 million years ago. We're launching Pangea Day with the vision that the people of the world can begin to overcome their divisions, and that the power of film can help make it possible.

Movies can't change the world. But the people who watch them can.

Smoke Signals

The clouds, one of which was sited outside the Watershed media center on the city’s waterfront and the other in a disused cathedral in Park Place, combined the ancient practice of smoke signaling with the distinctly twenty-first century communications platform of SMS messaging. “Participants engage in a collective act of writing space through the use of light as a virtual writing machine onto ephemeral plumes of smoke,” explain Minimaforms. In other words, onlookers can text messages which are then displayed using light projected into plumes of smoke. Their texts “are fed through dynamic coding that recognizes, archives and plays back a real time visualization. This visualization is then grafted onto trajectories of smoke that form a dynamic ephemeral field that is affected by all external forces in the space of performance. Through turbulence the smoke writes or erases the grafting of the inputted text.”
