The Lyon-based motion design agency Cumulus, which I wrote an interview some years ago (read it here) just released their new 2013 showreel. An opportunity to have a look at their last works for clients like Orangina, Footmercato, Région Rhône-Alpes or the electronic music festival in Lyon Les Nuits Sonores.
Vigilism aka Lekan Jeyifo is a digital artist born in Nigeria and based in Brooklyn, New York. In his illustrations series untitled Settlements and City Strategies, he shares his own vision of urban atmospheres. His pictures mix up fragmented compositions, playing with geometric shapes in a 3D architecture rendering way, and vintage colours and textures, warming up the images.
In the second part of the series, the artist plays with semi-realistic maps, with weird informations of networks, directions, key points...
Steve Burg is an american concept artist, who worked on several of the biggest movies of science-fiction since the 80's. With works for Total Recall, Waterworld, Terminator 2 or the recent Prometheus, he conceived very detailed universes and more particularly machines and ships. Something very interesting with this artist is that he began to work when digital wasn't used for concept art. His first pictures were painted with gouache or markers, but he currently works essentially in digital art, with a strong base of 3D modeling.
Produced for MTV Asia, Codehunters is a short animation film directed by Ben Hibon in 2006. This director has created several animation sequences for different movies like Harry Potter, Sucker Punch or the recent Mirror Mirror. Even if the scenario don't give a lot of details, an interesting story and a nice universe give the short film a great identity.
Planktoon is an animation studio located in Paris working for advertising, with some big clients like Carrefour or Canal + (very famous french companies). But they also produce non commercial animation films, like Réflexion, a nice short film. The reflection theme, even if not very original, is nicely served by a great animation and direction work.
For the electrical domestics bran Hotpoint, director Timo Schaedel and the team of Platige Image realised a great commercial. The whole has been conceived in 3D and special effects. The scene takes place inside an oven in which different dishes are cooking. The modelling and lighting are really great, but the most amazing thing is the hot air effects, which give the movie an artistic feel.
