1. In honor of the 15th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s cult sci-fi favorite “Firefly,” we've launched a reel that celebrates the epic journey of Serenity and its valiant crew. The compilation highlights some of the best VFX work on the beloved show, which launched Zoic in 2002 and earned an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Visual Effects for a Series.” We dug into the archives to create this commemorative reel, rebuilding Serenity with the original team and put together a shiny new sequence followed by an assembly of some of the most beloved and quotable moments of the franchise.

    Singer Zhang Liangying, portrays the role of an office lady and was presented at the beginning of the story. This unlucky lady was blamed by her boss over the phone when she visited the Art Institute of Chicago. Suddenly, she enters a world of famous paintings, and was on her way to a fantastic adventure.

    In this MV, we try to connect 12 world-known paintings through interesting and smooth transitions. The original values of those paintings are re-defined. For example, Van Gogh’s ear is bitten by Mike Tyson; when the girl in the Gleaners looks up, she becomes the Girl with A Pearl Earring; the two men in black at the end of the bridge in the Scream by Edvard Munch are actually MIB, and they scream because they see the big monster in the painting of Dali; and the man in suit sitting with his back to us in the lonely café of the last painting Nighthawks, is Dali, and so on.

    The 3D effect of those famous paintings is the largest challenge in this MV. We invited excellent artists to contribute their ideas and skills on all the scenes, costumes, actors and the singer. The innovative shooting methods are extremely experimental, which seems crazy!

    Although the concept of the script is radical, weird and wild, the revival of paintings, the integration of the new and the old, the copy of painting lines and the texture presentation in the production process are all challenges. The traditional arts and aesthetics are supported by creativity, and innovative story line and the overwhelming CG are integrated. The MV was made possible through the efforts of experts in various fields. We hope you enjoy it!

    The list of paintings and artists used in the MV:
    1. Edward Hopper – Nighthawks
    2. Vincent Willem van Gogh
    3. Jean-François Millet- Des glaneuses
    4. Johannes Vermeer-Het meisje met de parel
    5.Andrew Nowell Wyeth-Christina's World
    6.Georges-Pierre Seurat-Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte
    7. Edvard Munch-Skrik
    8.alvador Dali-A Tentação de Santo Antônio
    9. The marches of summer
    10. Maurits Cornelis Escher-Ascending and descending
    11. Maurits Cornelis Escher- Gallery
    12. Magritte Rene-The Son of Man
    13. Salvador Dali

    * As for the 13th painting, the explosion at 1:35 of the MV adopts the style of Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama.

    故事的開始,從歌手張靚穎所扮演的OL上班族拉開序幕,電話那頭傳來老闆的責駡,正在逛芝加哥美術館( Art Institute of Chicago)的倒楣OL,莫名闖入名畫的世界,展開一連串不可思議的奇幻冒險。

    此MV我們嘗試以有趣流暢的轉場,貫穿12幅世界名畫,並且顛覆改寫原先名畫的世界觀,做出了全新的定義,例如:梵谷的耳朵原來是被拳王泰森給咬下來的、拾穗中間彎著腰的女性抬起頭來,原來是戴珍珠耳環的少女、孟克吶喊那座橋後方的兩個黑衣人原來是MIB,而吶喊的原因是看到了達利畫中的巨大神獸所以尖叫吶喊、而最後名畫Nighthawks寂寞咖啡廳裡背對西裝男,竟然是達利的背影……等等。

    為了讓平面經典以3D重現,將名畫"立體化"是此次MV最大的挑戰,我們找來了優秀的藝術畫家們,將所有看的到的搭景、服裝、甚至演員與歌手全都畫上了"筆觸","極不正常"的MV拍攝手法,極度實驗性的拍攝現場,只有瘋狂!

    雖然劇本創意不按牌理出牌,也可以說非常"前衛另類&狂野",但回歸現實製作層面,如何呈現畫作本質並賦予新的生命,新舊衝突的融合、筆觸的臨摹、質感呈現更是實際我們要克服的一大挑戰。以正統藝術與美感為基底,創意為輔,融入超展開的惡搞劇情,加上目不暇給的CG動畫特效,這是各方專業跨界努力後的成果,請開心享用!

    此外,值得一提的是歌手張靚穎的勇氣與野心,沒有底線、不給創作者任何框架的創作空間,就算是被顏料畫得面目全非也盡力配合,求得只是一個創意的完整,這是身為一個主流歌手非常難能可貴的,你去看看那些主流的CD封面或MV就可充分瞭解這其中的突破了,華語歌手總是被要求臉要清楚、要大、要美、舞蹈要好記.....創意總是被放在很後面,而這MV最令人振奮的是,我們終於可以把創意放在第一位了!!!

  5. The highly acclaimed, blockbuster-style short film THE SHAMAN premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in 2015. After that it ran successfully at numerous film festivals around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, San Diego and the DragonCon in Atlanta. The trailer turned into a viral sensation with over 6 million views.

    The dark year 2204, in a world that has seen 73 years of continuous war. Recently mankind re-discovered the arts of Shamanism. The Shaman’s school of thought believes that every person or object has a soul. During battle Shamans step over into the Netherworld to find and convert the souls of their enemies’ giant battle machines. This tactic enables a single man to overcome an invincibly seeming steel monster.

    This is the story of Joshua, a Shaman, who is sent on a mission to convert the soul of a giant battle colossus. He does not yet know that the soul is prepared for his coming and that the deadly psychological soul-to-soul confrontation in the Netherworld will be on eye level.
