    Happy Easter from Steve, Sunny and MPC

    The MPC NY crew flex their character design, animation and slapstick narrative muscles with an Easter confection written and directed in-house by Bill Dorais and Ty Coyle. “Enjoy the Sweets” blends traditional stop-motion techniques and CG into 3,000 frames of sweet-toothy feel-goodness. Lead animator Grae Revell: [Read more]

Sway Studio for Hyundai

My first post, please forgive any mistakes… This is a fun spot, nice editing, good sound design/music as well. Sway studio always continues to impress me. Sway Studio animates the performance of a professionally choreographed live dance team with 362 CG robots in a Hyundai spot directed by John Allardice. “In this case, we decided […] [Read more]

The four pillars of hip hop

EyeballNYC turns in some nice 3D work for this spanking new national Jeep spot but you’ll also notice four well-worn (read very tired) visual devices – grafitti/drippy paint, b-boys, DJs and MCs.

New jig for jag

I have not been a fan of the latest ultra-pretentious-wanna-be-a-Vogue-shoot campaign for Jaguar but I also believe credit is due when progress is made. This latest clip, designed and edited by Outside Editorial – though still hobbled with narrative-halting stills of beautiful people – manages to build a momentum and suspense that had me watching […] [Read more]
