Channel One is an uncommon country-wide network in a state as large as Russia, thus the idents are broadly appealing. There’s a lot of interpretation for one so inclined, not least of all is the reference to Sydenham’s Crystal Palace which inspired Chernyshevsky’s utopian vision in his 1863 novel “What is to be Done?”
Greenhaus GFX has a new VFX reel packed with amazing work. This montage features high end projects for feature films ranging from Entourage to the Smurf’s, and also includes breakdowns of some of their process.
CHRLX has been exploring new logo designs, and has released a montage of many different animated variations. With over 20 different logos and animations, CHRLX certainly gets an overhaul on their brand. If you are looking to redesign your logo, or are working on a logo redesign for someone else, this is certainly a great place to look for inspiration.
We are seeing many reels popping up lately for the end of the year, and some are very specific like this “dragons and environment” reel from CGF. If you are into designing extremely high end environments or mythical creatures in 3D, then this reel is right up your alley.
Check out Sequence’s new reel, just in time to wrap up the year. It seems like they have been super busy working on a wide range of projects, more motion graphics to live action. If you are looking for some quick inspiration in a lot of different areas, then be sure to check out this one!
MTC is pumping out work at an extraordinary rate, and staying very organized along the way by constantly releasing new montages of work. These two reels feature their best animal work, as well as “making of” work. You don’t see many reels specifically featuring the work that went into a “making of,” but MTC knows just how much time goes into them!
Do you like modeling and animating cars? Mathematic SAS seems to share the same passion, which is completely apparent in their latest reel dedicated to cars. The featured projects throughout the montage are vastly different, but with a consistent level of high quality car renderings.
If you only know Territory from their UI presence in the feature film world, you have to check out this compilation for the new Forza video game! The 3D models in this game are absolutely stunning, but the clean and sleek UI graphics add another level of complexity to the package. I’m glad that the Forza franchise did not overlook this aspect of the experience, and delivered some of the best UI in the industry.
If you’ve never seen Christian Leitner’s ingenious and often terrifying work before, this reel serves up some of the best moments from recent years.
