Happy Pi Day 2014! ::

Friday, March 14th, 2014

It seems that someone in Austin loves Pi as much as we do. This picture was sent to us courtesy of Hoagy Wing of Better’n Recess. If you see him performing at SXWS on stage or out in the crowd, be sure to say hello for a sneak peak of the Pi Music Video Animatic. We’ll post the animatic here the future, but if you’re lucky enough to be in Austin near Hoagy, you can see it now in person.

Pi Behind the Scenes – The Storyboards ::

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Here are a few of the storyboards for Pi, the music video for Better’n Recess’s single of the same name. We’re very excited to present the journey of puppet Archimedes and friends to the world. We’ve taken a few liberties with history, for example, our music video may or may not feature a furry, levitating Archimedes as well as a snorkeling Ganesh.

Treating the Plane ::

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Mastering Atomic Robo: Last Stop has been a ton of fun. Above is Shot 008. The first image is the treated Cargo Bay scene the beginning of the short. Below is the untreated frame. We’ve been injecting color and mood on a scene by scene basis. Some people always prefer the untreated footage, but we think a little mood lighting goes a long with. Live action crews use bounce boards and gels, we use blend modes and other virtual tools.
