Project Cars

游戏车项目

large

I hadn’t heard about project cars before seeing this video floating around on the web, but once I saw the quality of the vfx I decided to take a look at the project site.   It seems to be a crowd created and funded video game that has 80,000 members and has raised over 3.5million Euros.

在我浏览这个网页之前,我从未听说过 《project CARS》,但当有一次我看到了vfx的效果,我觉决定去看一下这个project site。这是一个 拥有80000会员,并由一批广大群众自主研发并斥资打造的一款视频游戏,其价值已经上升为3.5亿欧元。

Slightly Mad Studios is an award-winning game developer known most recently for its work on Electronic Arts’ Need For Speed franchise with the successful SHIFT series.

Slightly Mad Studios 是一间英国的独立电子游戏公司。它经由美国艺电发行《极品飞车:变速》。

 

Fantastic work to these guys!  They’re doing great creative and using a new business model.  The hard work is paying off, big kudos to the people responsible!  Best of luck!

非凡之作!他们有着很棒的创造性,并运用了新型的商业模式。不过真正实现上还是有难度的,希望大家有良好的反馈!祝好运!

‘NATA5’ A Triptych

My work dwells in a netherworld between urban fine art and contemporary graphics, A collision of real and digital media it is primarily illustration based with a firm foundation in drawing, I focus mainly on the human form particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature… <see more artwork here> @ <http://www.behance.net/>

This work is great… lots of emotion in the faces and really pushed with the style.  It would be great for concept drawings for a film.  Definitely check out the full gallery at the bottom of the link.

The Secrets of Storytelling: Why We Love a Good Yarn

When Brad Pitt tells Eric Bana in the 2004 film Troy that “there are no pacts between lions and men,” he is not reciting a clever line from the pen of a Hollywood screenwriter. He is speaking Achilles’ words in English as Homer wrote them in Greek more than 2,000 years ago in the Iliad. The tale of the Trojan War has captivated generations of audiences while evolving from its origins as an oral epic to written versions and, finally, to several film adaptations. The power of this story to transcend time, language and culture is clear even today, evidenced by Troy’s robust success around the world… <read the full article here> @ <http://www.scientificamerican.com/>

I’m geeking out on this one, so interesting the idea of a drive for story…  As a storyteller it makes so much sense.  Great read for anyone creative, or who likes creative products… oh everyone!

 

James Cameron – Spiderman Scriptment!

the art of the criterion collection covers

This is film geeky, but I’m totally into the Criterion Collection and movie posters…  so pretty much heaven of an image library!  This stuff is amazing inspiration, such different takes on all the stories.  You can still feel the movies tone, but the artist(s) take and style comes through so strong.  <See all the kick ass images here>

10 Ways Steven Spielberg Has Made the World a Better Place

This has been a big year for Steven Spielberg — he’s launched two TV shows, including last night’s Terra Nova, and produced countless movies. The Spielberg tribute Super-8 was a surprise hit, and it’s become fashionable for other film-makers to claim they’re paying tribute to early Spielberg. Still ahead this year: the huge motion-capture reinvention ofTintin, the Belgian adventure comic… <read the full story here> @ <http://io9.com/>

Spielberg is a legend…  When it comes to high spectacle story telling, he’s probably done more than anyone.  This is just a nice little kudo list of accomplishments that he’s not usually recognized for, so I thought it interesting and deserving.  Here’s a quick look at the list of ten, the article has full descriptions.  I’m counting at least 5 on the list as truly innovative, and having to drive Hight Concept / High Spectacle films.  So it’s no wonder we’re fans!

10 ) Being an early adopter and innovator of CGI

9 ) Keeping science fiction alive on TV

8 ) Taking on tough adaptations/re-imaginings, and making them happen

7 ) Showing that video games could be a viable storytelling tool.

6 ) Preserving and shaping the memory of World War II

5 ) Co-founding a successful new studio, and helping bring back animated films

4 ) Bringing back the Saturday morning serial

3 ) Helping to make robot uprising the new zombie apocalypse

2 ) Bringing back our sense of wonder

1 ) Helping to create the idea of the movie “blockbuster.”

☣ MÀggøT BrÁìN ☣’s photostream

This is the photo stream of a photographer that doesn’t have much to say for himself in words, but plenty to show in his photos.  I’m really into the locations with filming in mind.  Great stuff… <you can see the rest of his work here>
