Peugeot RCZ video

FA have helped with the new Peugeot RCZ promotional web video before the launch of this snazzy new model. We worked with our friends just down the road Hurricane Media, and provided the light art streaks, through tracking light artist Michael Bosanko’s strokes.  It was great to see Michael at work to produce the end shot of the video. You’ll probably be familiar with his other commissions through the Talk Talk and the X Factor light art stings (visit http://www.michaelbosanko.com). Top guy, and real pleasure to watch work.. Clever stuff! Here’s the link to the video http://www.peugeot.co.uk/eburst-the-new-peugeot-rcz-video

Shout out for Mr Alex Metric

recently caught up with a good friend of mine from the golden days of youth, and watched him and his band perform under the alias Alex Metric.  You may have caught him as one of the new radio 1 team, and thinks he deserves a pimp up, cos he was brilliant!  The lads come a long way!  As this is a blog for all things animation,  his new video for single ‘It Starts’ is a wicked animated peice of mo graph….  Enjoy!!

More Power!!

We’re adding some more punch to the production pipeline, by adding some Boxx render nodes to the setup.  Rendering power is like cheese on a pizza, you can never have too much!! These new additions will add improved workflow, and greatly improved render times, particularly with HD projects…..
