04 April 2010, 07:51 PM
Hi at cgsociety,

we got a new short online: 'mem'

there's also a trailer for the new short 'loom', which we just finished:

and a '10 reel

All work done in Softimage and Fusion.

Hope you guys like it.

Looking forward to your feedback,

Looks great! As usual :)

I enjoyed Mem, but you're going to have to forgive me, as my reply here is going to focus more on the teaser for Loom. It looks incredible. I loved the teaser but was even more blown away by the stills on your site - your use of both nature and abstract shapes is truly excellent and you've done it in a very unique and engaging style. The animation of the moth and spider was really well done and I was particularly impressed by the actual web, both the look of it and the dynamic movement. I can't wait to see the final film.

Your reel looks fantastic too.

I second Leigh. I enjoyed "mem" alot (loved the morphosis), but I was really bugged that 'Loom' only has a preview/teaser. Beautiful work!

04 April 2010, 02:19 PM
great stuff :thumbsup: , looking forward for more!

04 April 2010, 02:34 PM
what day is today the Short day lol.... Love it this is mind blowing violent... down to the sound which is just amazing. Love how abstract this is.

04 April 2010, 02:43 PM
Real great use of abstraction. The animation is also very well done.
Excellent work.
It would be nice to have some breakdowns!

04 April 2010, 03:11 PM
Great stuff. Love the designs and feel of it all. Will be watching for more!

I'm a big fan of this style. I, too, would LOVE to see a breakdown, or some sort of compositing walkthrough.

On a semi-related note, I would like to suggest a new flash player/skin. Your work is too good to be wrapped up in the generic flash skin! PM me if you need assistance with that... =]

Love the work you guys do. Great style.

04 April 2010, 05:36 PM
Wow, great to see "loom", finished - It really looks great!
"mem" looks great to, fantastic work!
Keep up the fantastic work! Good luck!

04 April 2010, 06:12 PM
Wow, awesome work, especially Loom!

I love the composition of Loom. You can stop on any frame and it looks beautiful! Cant wait to see the final piece. Congrats!

I have watched more shots of "loom" on your demoreel ... and I have to say, this short will be worth watching, it has a lot of incredible works ...

can't wait to see it soon ... keep amazing us guys :)

Hi all!

thanks for the positive Feeback and the Plug.

Great to hear you guys seem to like Loom. We are all so happy it's finished. It was just sooo much work.

About some breakdowns. For those who will be at FMX, we will have a talk there, on how we did Loom.

Since we will prepare breakdowns for this we can definately put some of them online afterwards.

In generel I can say, that lots of stuff is done with ICE. It's so powerfull!

Thanks again,

That's great. Very nice 2D treatment
I really like the idea of the polygonal mesh coming out of an organic shell. But I am not that sure about the object being in a different 3D space with shadow, perspective etc. I think I'd prefer it if it was still in that micro cosmos and seen from within the microscope. But that's just my thought.

I am going through the rest of your shorts at the moment. Images look equally nice.
Keep it up!

Wow... The stuff you guys putting out is just amazing. I love your style! Its so artistic and overwhelming!
The Animation and cinematography on the trailer was just stunning. WOW! This is really the top of the top notch work!

Keep it up. You really rock. Everytime Im seeing something you did it really impresses me!
Great work again!

Cheers Silverwing

Great stuff, good luck guys!.

04 April 2010, 06:42 PM
superb use of abstraction to tell a simple story. Bravo!

04 April 2010, 10:04 AM
I just LOVE your stuff! Two cool movies but your demo reel is on another planet! Totally original and totally mindblowing!

04 April 2010, 05:26 PM
Gorgeous! Unusual pictures as usual.

I really like the style and the editing. Would you lift some secrets about the sound design?
