Brothers In Arms has been the most successful of the Boxhead and Roundhead shorts.
It won a couple of awards, and an honorable mention or two.
When it first played on Youtube, I got several emails from Gulf War veterans thanking me for it.
Very humbling and probably undeserved, but nice to know it touched people.
As ever, email me for DVDs if you want them.
The minute is a special place, unseen microcosmos within a unseen universe bind us together.
Our creative vision is to continue our conversation with the Macro Kingdom.. an ongoing poem
in the tradition of the two previous films.
So, what is it about the scaled down infinate? certainly not unappreciable.. as you can see and hear..
we bring to life, forms, shapes, ideas.. We bring to life your attention... This regal landscape of atomic proportion.
The sounds, created from found objects, the camera capturing moments in detail too easy to ignore.
brought to your attention by Clemens Wirth, and crafted sonically by Radium Audio.. creators of detail - enhanced listening experts.
AKQA San Francisco asked PostPanic to help create a unique 10th anniversary thank you film to more than 1 million Google AdWords clients worldwide. The agency's idea was to individually address each of the clients by incorporating their company name in the film visuals. PostPanic took on the challenge of creating the main film which would then be handed over complete to Google's customization agency for clients' name integration. Director Mischa Rozema developed AKQA's script to include a fictitious Google research department trying out ambitious experiments to feature each advertiser. A combination of live action and vfx, the footage was filmed by PostPanic in around Google HDQ in California, before being brought back for post in Amsterdam.

Budget was 45k euro - for the shoot. Visual effects budget was a grand total of zeeero. I designed Blinky, modeled him in 3D and played both the his voice and the body mocap performance. And did most of the VFX. Thankfully all footage of me in the skintight mocap suit has been permanently destroyed.
Visual effects were completed over a period of 9 months, of hell. There's a reason why you don't see too many wet CG characters in movies even with 100 million dollar budgets. It's really, really hard.
