Recent motion goodness, part 1

  • Honda Insight Let it Shine turns hundreds of cars into a giant LED-style display. [Via] The making-of piece is just as interesting, as is the excellent browser integration on the Vimeo site. (Man, years ago I used to dream about doing stuff like this in a browser. Glad to see it in action.)
  • “Carousel” for Philips Cinema is pretty amazing on every level. The short film works as an endless loop, and as Coloribus writes in its behind-the-scenes coverage, “Visitors to the microsite therefore have the option to ‘spin’ through the film’s single take shot repeatedly, to stop on a specific frame, or to watch it at the preordained speed. The film also contains embedded hotspots, which, when triggered, transport the viewer seamlessly from the heavily posted film to a behind-the-scenes version of the same shot.” [Via Colin Macdonald]
  • Jonathan Jarvis’s The Crisis of Credit Visualized uses Illustrator & After Effects to great effect, explaining the chain reactions that inflated–then crippled–the world economy. [Via David Macy]
  • No CGI, no wires needed: Danny MacAskill does some of the most incredible stunts (which just happen to involve a bike) I’ve ever seen. Great musical choice, too. [Via everyone ever]

Dook dook dook… More wet-whistled podcasting

Reprising the session from a couple of weeks ago, I again joined Deke McClelland & Colleen Wheeler for a Martini Hour podcast. This time we were joined by Adobe creative director Russell Brown. Both conversation & sidecars flowed freely, though only the latter stayed within predictable boundaries.
