If your are looking for some elegant CG inspiration, take a look at Future Deluxe and Twisted Poly’s latest piece.  This animated short is apparently the first of five films to launch their new brand and they did it in a big way.  Intricate detail and gorgeous colors really help this animation pop, throughout every composition.

BBC Music shoots for the stars with this new promotional film titled, “God Only Knows” to promote their new channel.  When you work with 27 music icons in hollywood, you need to also work with some of the best production companies in the world, which is where The Mill comes into play.  27 of these musicians were shot over the course of a year on green screen, and then composited by The Mill to appear in the Alexandra Palace.  Apparently this job was so big that just about every department in The Mill worked on this, using software such as Nuke, Houdini, Maya, Flame, Photoshop and more.
ZUBR teams up with Platige Images again to create another animated commercial using CG animals.  The last time we had a commercial for ZUBR, there was a fully CG deer running throughout he forest, this time we have a boar trapped in a hole and gets help from some friends.  Like last time, the environments are terrific, the CG animals are spot on and the sunlight leaking through the trees adds a great level of detail.
