Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as 'the dead one from Monty Python', stars in the best movie since he died, his own life story called A LIAR'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. He wrote it and voiced it, and now the film reunites the brilliantly funny members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus for the first time in nearly three decades. 15 companies that specialize in animation contributed animation segments to the project, and Süperfad was the only American company so honored. Eric Idle is still pissed about something so you won't hear him in it, but the others play with Graham Chapman's recording and from it comes a very interesting animation feature.
Featuring Charlie Gabriel of Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Harry Shum, Jr. of "GLEE". Color adds depth.
How many elephants fit in a car? This question inspired choreographer Christian Vilppola from Cirkus Cirkör to squeeze a lot of truckers into the new Volvo FH. How many?
"A feature of the new Volvo FH is a roomier cab with one cubic metre more space, a big improvement for the driver. But how do you visualize the actual size of a cab on a digital screen? We decided to do it by using what the cab is really all about - truckers." says Forsman & Bodenfors who created the campaign.

The Salt Institute and Grey San Francisco + Gentleman Scholar demonstrate how salt makes everything better in this beautifully crafted spot. Everything from roads to roasts can use a dab of it. Or like Alton Brown says: "add a teaspoon of Kosher salt" to almost anything, including coffee....
Gentleman Scholar worked off of Grey's original idea to create a granular and tactile world in which the malleable sculptures of salt would look amazing on both macro and micro levels.
"We developed two separate materials to emphasize the characteristics of salt from different perspectives," explains Gentleman Scholar Technical Director Henry Foster.

The full trailer can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyW5KMMDjZw
It's all about corny oddvertising.
We already know: the Dutch are crazy. And now they have crazy snacks. With funny names like Corny. And crazy singing rabbits. Is oddvertising the new advertising online?
In the highly amusing introductory commercial developed by Fitzroy Amsterdam, a dubious little rabbit sings a remake of the 90's hit Me So Horny (2 Live Crew) in a repulsively strong German accent. This is done in an attempt to try and woo a girl in a library, much to the annoyance of the surrounding visitors. Now we know for sure: our world is half nuts, half corny.
The film, which was screened to a select group of entertainment and gaming media to great acclaim in April at the Soho House in Los Angeles, premiered at select broadcast channels worldwide last week. The film will stream on various locations online - including G4TV online, Vice, Ghost Recon's YouTube page, IGN, GameSpot and Complex - beginning Monday, May 14 and will continue for two weeks up to the game launch.
Hold up, hold up, wait before you read the press release below... Think about this for a second.
This SUV has the "truffula tree seal of approval" The what? The truffula tree is harvested to extinction making the skies grey and fresh air something that's sold on the open market in bottles. You really want that seal of approval on a gas-guzzling SUV? You sure?
To promote Bacardi Dragonberry in the Netherlands Fitzroy Amsterdam created a real time video mapping concept. Visitors of a café nearby ‘Het Witte Huis’, a momumental building in the centre of Rotterdam, were photographed. These photos were sent directly to a projector, which imaged a giant dragon spitting the photos in real time on to the building façade. For as far we know, it’s the first real time video mapping concept in the world.
You can pretty much do anything these days with a smart phone and an email address, but did you know you can look inside your house while on the go and even dim the lights and set the alarm remotely? Shilo director Jose Gomez had a lot of fun bringing these elements to life in this spot for Cox Communications. By combination of live-action, CG, and animation, Jose creates an experience showing viewers how Cox is a friend in the digital age.
Legendary Willie Nelson covers Coldplay's "The Scientist", in a two minute animated lovely for Chipotle that ends with the line "Cultivate a better world."
The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.
NYC-based Nice Shoes recently converted the new "Adventureland/Tasty Treasures Combo" Friskies spot from 2D to 3D, just in time to premiere during Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The spot conversion, for Avrett Free Ginsberg, was overseen by Nice Shoes' VFX artists Rich Schreck and Russ Bigsby as well as senior producer Pat Portela. Originally animated in 2D by Passion Pictures, it features a cat in a real-world kitchen and a can of Friskies which emits a magical display of golden confetti. The cat then jumps through a magical looking glass and wanders through an animated wonderland that includes turkeys and cows and a ride on an animated fish-shaped boat.
Nathan Love of production company Mothership has ventured where few directors have dared to go -- inside the depths of Santa's beard! In a :30 spot promoting Oregon Lottery's holiday scratch-off game "What's In Santa's Beard?" Portland agency Borders Perrin Norrander (BPN) tapped Mothership's Nathan Love to create an animated world filled with kooky holiday characters and the potential winnings from playing the lottery game. "Beard World" breaks today, Nov. 1st.
On Saturday, October 2nd, Sensodyne iso-active presented an all-night projection art event at Toronto’s landmark Union Station. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) the makers of Sensodyne, led by their Canadian agency Grey Canada, worked with Tantrum Design & Visual Effects, Media Merchants and Silent Joe to create the largest ever, first branded, 3D projection mapping display in Canada: iso3D.
Advertising in stereoscopic 3D just became a whole lot sexier thanks to SUSPECT and fashion brand Armani | Exchange. In "Speed Style", the fashion world's first-ever 3D campaign, the New York-based creative studio turned a rendezvous in a smoky, surreal tunnel between two lusty, young lovers into a heady experience unlike anything seen before.
Following extensive VFX involvement on the first 3D music video for Latin Grammy Award-winning recording artist Daddy Yankee and a comedic :30 sports-centric spot from Wieden + Kennedy featuring LA Dodger outfielder Andre Ethier, SUSPECT was well prepared for the challenges of working in the 3D space. Still, the Armani | Exchange film provided learning opportunities as the studio further developed its capabilities in this rapidly evolving realm.
