spiderman into the spider by Bob Persichetti

Lord and Miller wanted the film to feel like “you walked inside a comic book”, and were excited about telling the story in a way the live-action films couldn’t. The CGI animation for the film was combined with “line work and painting and dots and all sorts of comic book techniques” to make it look like it was created by hand.

Fell In Love With A Girl by Michel Gondry

The music video for ‘The White Stripes’ is a Lego animation directed by Michel Gondry. Gondry’s son was featured at the beginning of the video, building Lego blocks. It was shot frame by frame with each frame having the Lego bricks rebuilt, sometimes in a complex manner to seem as if it were an actual shot, and then formed together to give the illusion of motion. (2001)

This is an excerpt from the Complete Work of Michel Gondry DVD, focusing on the making of the video for The White Stripes – Fell in Love with a Girl.

Growing “Shroooms” by C A T K

Shrooms is a research project in working with artificial growth algorithms for image creation. How does the use of semi-supervised algorithms inform our creative language? Where do the two worlds blend and create new digital aesthetics?

The sound – also designed by the Ai and us – was conceived similarly, we fed basic parameters to a sequencer from today and programmed 30-year-old machines to give us the results.

All packed with love.
