So I went to see MONSTERS UNIVERSITY this weekend, and was excited to see PIXAR’S new short like they have before every new movie. They called it BLUE UMBRELLA. The style was quite different from their usual look, taking a much more photo realistic approach. At some points I couldn’t tell if it was real footage composited with the 3D characters. The music (by Sarah Jaffe) and the story worked perfectly, and it looked absolutely gorgeous. Check out the trailer below!
Gotta love movies that you stay to watch the end credits, because you know even that is going to be awesome. It’s awesome how they still nod to the comics, PROLOGUE and their team killed it. Check it out below!
Continuing the summer theme, NATHAN LOVE just released their new SUMMER CUTS reel! Not much to say about this one, just press play and enjoy the awesomeness…
In celebration of Summer, I have been working from the beach so my apologies for the lack of posts! But we are back now with some awesome summertime work! CAPACITY just shared their new summer branding montage for CW, check it out below!
The first 3/4 of this spot is really well done with a great concept. The subtle and not-so-subtle changes around the main character are great, and the evolution through time reads extremely well. For such a strong spot at the top, I did think the end could have been a bit stronger rather than throwing the brush up into the sun and having it transform. All in all, some great inspiration here. Check it out below!
I’m sure you have seen this floating around the commercial breaks. NATHAN LOVE creates “Carl the kind crab” for Kellogs. Thought I’d share this, brings back memories from those crazy cereal commercials growing up, glad it still carries on somewhere.
An awesome look at the making of Panera’s new “Live Consciously / Eat Deliciously by 1st Ave Machine! It’s always a breath of fresh air to see things done practically once in a while, even if it can be done just as easily in 3D.

Check out this compilation of shows and movies that you may not have realized used green screen. Nowadays in our industry, if done well you can save a ton on your budget by using green screen properly, like creating an entire film that takes place in Alaska…in Massachusetts. Hope this gets you thinking. (Thanks John for the post)
