Vivid Sydney 2015

Vivid Sydney 2015 takes over the Sydney Opera House

Vivid Sydney 2015: We love the Sydney Opera House‘s contribution to VIVID Sydney 2015 which is a global animation project by Universal Everything, collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide to create a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings. Embracing emerging technologies, Universal Everything’s process always starts from drawings, with techniques seen in this film akin to the early pioneers of animation including Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney. Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist – bringing influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this Sydney icon. Awesome work! 🙂

David Hasselhoff is a ‘True Survivor’

David Hasselhoff rides a T-Rex in his music video from the ‘Kung Fury’ soundtrack

David Hasselhoff: We love watching David Hasselhoff ride a T-Rex in his new music video for the song ‘True Survivor’ from the Kung Fury soundtrack. Kung Fury is an over-the-top 1980s-style action comedy about a kung fu cop who travels back in time to fight Hitler and was written and directed by David Sandberg who successfully raised the money to finish the film via a Kickstarter campaign. The Hoff has done it again – Love, Love, Love it!
