1. This is a small animation i did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing.

    For the description of the project, all these frames plus the frames from the scenes that weren't included, visit - behance.net/gallery/Spherikal/3565597

    It was all done in Cinema 4d R13, all with the Mograph module. Compositing and post in After Effects

  2. one take impromptu film made in Tokyo by Dennis Wheatley

    sitting in this sushi bar pondering how best to set up a camera to film things all by itself whilst in Tokyo.
    Take hands out of the equation... let the camera have its own journey.

    I'd taken a cannibalised record turntable with me from the UK with the idea of filming slow panoramas but it was painfully bumpy and stopped every minute.

    Then the eureka moment sitting looking at the carousel

    A few years later I was working on a piece of music and married the two together.
    The music is all about that feeling when you're half asleep in the sun.. the ambiance of foreign voices becomes a lullaby to dream away.
    There's something beautiful in not understanding a language.. it becomes abstract, musical.
    Opera can be amazing when you can't understand the words!

    What we loved about watching this film back was the space that the camera was able to enter.. extremely personal and scrutinising but not too lingering.

    The music is 'lost in a moment' by 'shrift' from the album of the same name.

    more trivia: film was originally taken in 1998... married with the music much later.

    Thanks for all the positive comments.. will upload a better quality version soon.
