Boom, our latest publication has finally landed! A work of art that explores the relationship between nature, motion and sound, The Interpretation takes us on a languid journey through a slowly flourishing forest. Hinting at vague memories of microbiology and rotating through a cool organic spectrum of greens, blues, browns, blacks and whites; this motion-based work will entrance its viewer as the forest evolves. The Interpretation is set to a minimal score filled with authentic sounds of nature, complimenting the environmental essence of the visuals. One of the movies on this DVD also features a soundtrack composed by various Ghostly Records musicians.
Last night I was reading about 1950′s animation in Cartoon Modern and it mentioned some of the amazing modern animators coming out of Europe that were vastly different than the standard 19th century “Disney” style that was so prevalent in the US. One such animator was Ivan Ivanov-Vano whom collaborated with the likes of Shostakovich and Stravinsky. Take a moment today to watch Seasons by Ivan Ivanov-Vano , while it wasn’t produced in the 50′s and it isn’t the exact video I was looking for with the Shostakovich score, it’s still absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!
Caught this video last night, pretty nice idea going on here visually. It gets good around the 2 minute point..
We just finished a short film/edit using various clips from our stock motion collections titled Moire. Composed of patterns and hypnotic illusions, Moire may result in acid flashbacks from your teenage childhood or slight migraines when given to much concentration. Available in HD.
