The Twelve Showreel 2010
Music produced by Young Pulse (Institubes / Stunts) - Art Direction by The Twelve.
So you’re thinking “this is yet another rock band uninspiredly squeezing “The” before their name”.. Well think again, for we actually are a studio specializing in creating image – on any currently known or unknown media.
Now we could launch into the boring still charming story of picking The Twelve as a name because this number shows up at least once in each our dates of birth, and, for the sake of symbolism, tell you how countless things connect us to the number 12.
Instead we’ll just say our strong personalities work perfectly well together. Call it intuitive collaboration, gifted teamwork or even synergy, this is one of our main assets.
Our quite unconventional profiles have shaped along our professional careers – as directors in communication agencies and productions companies or as freelancers, in France and around the world. Our respective backgrounds now allow our broad expertise to cover the whole realm of visual creation and communication.
Art direction, video, photography, graphic and web design, 3D and motion design is where The Twelve is at their best
This experimental video was created as a final project for my procedural animation course at Savannah College of Art and Design. http://scad.edu It was inspired by demoscene and sub-atomic particle collision images. The name comes from the Higgs Boson prticle which is expected to provide a scientific foundation for the origin of mass in the universe.
My special thanks goes to professor Ronald Bernard and Puryx aka Christian Rønde who let me use his music for the soundtrack originally created for a demo called Nucleophile http://bit.ly/aErBrg
You should visit prof. Bernard's website if you want to see some amazing student work:

More information about the origin of mass:
A metaphorical short film about bikes, movement, freedom and love. Every day mind tries to get the better of heart. Space and time have always existed and we can’t stop them. Throught the movement we discover ourself. Speed is like curiosity. A crash between two bodies. To remember us that we are not alone.
The video has been realised between Montréal and London. It combines 2d and 3d motion graphics and video footages.
Main tools: Adobe AI, PS, AE; Apple FCP; Maxon C4D; Sony Ex1-Cam.
