This isnt my usual taste - nothing dark or blatantly geeky here, just a really well done exploration of physical space using a nice juxtaposition ( apologies for word-wankiness, but it fits ) of traditional art methods/materials with composited elements to create a childish, dreamlike, impossible environment, with music that sets it all off wonderfully ( especially the subtle childrens’ laughter that seeps in halfway through. Playful, whimsical and all those sorts of words - most of all inspirational. Love it.
Amy Shackleton, who is only 25-years-old, is a unique artist. While her paintings use tons and tons of paint, she doesn’t use paintbrushes to create them! Rather, she squeezes paint onto canvases and then allows the paint to naturally drip. She then rotates the canvas to control the direction of the drips, making her paintings appear natural yet controlled.

More on Mr Onur Senturk - this wonderful video is supposedly a “making of” short to accompany the video Nokta. Whilst not the most in-depth “making-of” it does give us a window in to how much difference there is between the original C4D renders and the final polished stuff in After Effects. Its especially interesting to me because I am always curious as to where people do the bulk of their work - in C4D/Maya etc, or After Effects.
I would be fascinated to have some insight in to Onur’s workflow in AE, especially as to how he seems to be changing the actual textures on the renders. Is that just clever light-work, motion blurring etc, or are there more complex plugins involved…? Either way, very generous of him to allow us to peek in on his workflow.
