Things relating to living in Vancouver

Staples, Recycle for Education Contest.

By Vancouver, Work No Comments

Every Vimeo *Like* will help me in a competition I’m in that measures likes.

So Staples, one of our clients, wanted to attract some attention to a contest they’re running in Canada where they’re giving away some computers to schools. There’s an environmental aspect too… the winner needs to prove that their school recycles, turns off lights etc… the brief was for a kinetic type animation, but I ended up adding a few extra layers.

Bad Fonts on Denman

By Vancouver 4 Comments

I’ve lived on Denman Street, Vancouver for a few months now, and we’re continuously amused by the non-cool retro typefaces that have been inherited from the 70’s & 80’s. Some of these are quite nasty, and while not always the typeface itself, there is some freaky usage. I’d recommend a walk down Denman to see for yourself.

*Actually I’m still considering if this Minit Foto one is bad or good…

And of course…

Kodak Playsport

By Vancouver, Work No Comments

I had a great opportunity to work on this Kodak Playsport film. I used Magic Bullet Looks and some nice film grain (one of the Kodak film stock settings of course!) for the warm summery grade, and various 2D motion tracking for compositing screen contents, and sky replacement. I’m quite pleased with this one, and we got some brilliant feedback from Kodak at the end.
