1. Bee is a short animation I've been working on for quite some time, I've got an inspiration from the music of Boards of Canada. Many thanks to Studio Aiko (studio-aiko.com) team for help, support and constructive critique.

    The movie was created with 3d studio max, vray and after effects.

    music: Boards of Canada - Olson, boardsofcanada.com

  2. 14 teams of Austin based studios and freelancers participated in a 48 hour animation challenge in the spirit of an Exquisite Corpse presented by the Austin Motion Artists Group, Moontower VFX, Houndstooth Studio, and The Octopus Project.

    On January 17th, 2014, each team received a specifically designed start frame, an end frame, an 11 second 4 bar phrase of the chosen Octopus Project song and a guiding theme "The Ecstatic Energy of Geometry."

    2 days later, everybody converged on Moontower VFX to assemble their segments into a seamless 3 minute music video, drink beer, and revel in the bliss of their collaborative creation. There was also a pool table.
