Media_httpfarm5static_dgfff

Unpleasant as they may be, nightmares are an essential part of dreaming. While our more enjoyable dreams are spurred by wishes and desires, nightmares are a manifestation of other common feelings like stress andanxiety. However, like many dreams, nightmares are not as straight forward as they seem… <read the full story here> @ <http://health.howstuffworks.com/>

Filmmaking pre CGI was quite a different endeavor—one that often required giant sets and miniatures and old-school rigged effects. Think you know Hollywood productions? Let’s see how many of these classics you can name in the comments below! <see all the images here> @ <http://www.mentalfloss.com/>

Love it, and even though we’re vfx guys it’s still all about getting whatever you can in camera.  This is a testimate to ingenuity.

the sword identity trailer

The Sword Identity is a new upcoming martial arts movie which is written by the person who brought us Wong Kar-wai’s forthcoming feature “The Grand Masters” Xu Haofeng.

The movie is Set during the Ming dynasty, which is always a great watch and is about Japanese pirates invading China, so one man stands up and fights against them using a weapon by the famous General Qi’s regiment…. <see other trailers and read about the film here>

Once again—the sky saturates us with is deluge—accompanied by its loud burst of thunder—we’ve grown accustomed to. How long has it been raining on this city? Mute and indifferent to what has become familiar—we are only sure that the storms have transformed our city and us…  <see all the photos and read about the work here> <particularly locations>

Unfortunately the pics are all locked up nice and tight so I can’t show you a sample that is the goodness of this photography.  So you’ll have to trust me and go check them out.  All the work is fantastic, but I mostly enjoy the moods of the location shots.  Very cinematic in tone…  love the vibe!

how the crowd is shaping the future of storytelling

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stories are the foundation of human communication, even when first relayed over campfires — an inherently social and communal setting. The storyteller can change his tale based on the expressions on the faces of his audience — speed up here, slow down there, give more background on a character. The storyteller may hear someone else retell his or her own story in a different way, and use that experience in telling new stories or iterating upon the original. The story gets stronger and more nuanced in the retelling…  <read the full story here> @ <http://mashable.com/>

welcome to our world of imagination

Imaginary Friends Studios was founded by friends, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, one of the top artists on Deviantart.com with close to 6 million page; Kendrick “Kunkka” Lim, a game designer who worked previously at a Tokyo-based game studio; and Kai “Ukitakumuki” Lim, who at 19 had already art directed two major game mods for Half-Life 2 including Hull Breach and Nuclear Dawn.

Imaginary is much more than a concept art, comics and illustration studio. With its “By-artists-for-artists” mantra and its small but ever-increasing cult-like online fan following, Imaginary truly represents a next-gen creative approach to the creative business by hot-housing its established and fresh new talents, delivering creative services and content to a global audience.  <read all about them, and check out their work here>

Wow, really cool vibe.  Bit of a collective of concept artists… definitely have to hook up with them!
