Despite what may appear obvious, the title “Phatty” has nothing to do with joints and weed. It is, in fact, a word-play on Turkish name Fatih (no, not “faith”) which is pronounced pretty much the same.
At the end of the original run of the_city all the characters went their separate ways. In the series two some of them came back. This was the sketch for the first meeting between the long-lost friends.
Inspired by the cross-processed photos and CMYK printing, I have developed a visual effect for “digital polaroid”, based on the ink bleed transitions and used it to reveal the video over the course of a three minute song.
Nexus Q: Sweet, Smart is a little something something I cooked up a while ago for the launch of Google’s new media player. The product has been shelved, the video never produced, but I still have this kickass test.
AE64 is a tribute to the demoscene and to the legacy of world’s most popular microcomputer: Commodore 64.
While this video was created using the typical contemporary arsenal of tools (mainly After Effects and Cinema 4D), it conforms to most of the basic graphical limitations of the C64 such as a limited 16-color palette, low resolution, use of the overscan area etc. To maintain the spirit of the demo, I also created most of the effects using various scripts and code snippets, procedurally automating many of the tasks typically animated using keyframes.
In this tutorial I will teach you how to create your own UFO troll video using After Effects and Mocha – a process that should take you no longer than 30 minutes from the moment you grab a camera, to the time you are ready for upload.
