Based on a stand-up routine by comedian Chris Rock. Animated using Adobe After Effects.
I created the titles for the short film THE BALLAD OF DANKO JONES, directed by The Diamond Bros.
Canadian rock band Danko Jones sets out to save the world from an evil scientist while escaping multiple hit men out to get them.
"Full of Regret" by Danko Jones is available on iTunes.
The short features Danko Jones, John "JC" Calabrese, Dan Cornelius, Elijah Wood, Selma Blair, Lemmy Kilmister, Ralph Macchio, Jena Malone, Art Hsu, Jason Trost, Frank Drank, Mike Watt, Don Jamieson, and Laura Margolis.

Get your 3D anaglyph glasses out and check out this exploration of 3D type in stereo. Fullscreen the video and step back about six feet for maximum stereoscopic effect. I built this typeface to investigate and demonstrate the properties of stereoscopic workflow for part of my talk at the HOWdesign conference. I used Maxon's Cinema 4D and Adobe's After Effects and used the stereoscopic camera tools in both of those applications. I also used a couple of plugins (Eyedesyn's TextEdgeFX & GreyScaleGorrila's Transform) to build my animations. I tried to design to two different constraints: making all of my glyphs to a 16x9 grid, and to take advantage of the "horizon line edge exception" rule of stereoscopic outlined in my talk.
