Digital Dimension shows off their cinematic skills in this new reel! Visual effects and 3D animation ranging across a wide variety of projects shows exactly why they work on the high profile jobs. Awesome video game work, most notably for the new Mortal Kombat cinematic sequence.
A show about amazing Colombian engineering featuring great typography in the opener and sophisticated informational graphics throughout the package.
Now that Jurassic World is heading out of theaters, Image Engine has released a montage of their best VFX shots throughout the movie. Along with the montage, they also released a breakdown of some VFX shots which show just how important this kind of work is to feature films. It is truly amazing to see a live action shot clean, without any post work done to it, because without visual effects, these kinds of movies wouldn’t exist. Watch as raptors are built in 3D, composited into scenes, and elements like grass recreated to interact with the CG models.
If you can make typography out of things, stuff, crap, I can’t say no. These titles feature some truly inventive techniques for generating words.
Whether you are looking for inspiration, or just want to be completely blown away for the next two minutes, then you need to watch Blow Studio’s latest montage. Incredibly high-end work of all sorts, a few projects being some of my personal favorites such as the River Island and Rdio spots.
Are you into slick character design and animation? Check out SHED’s latest reel consisting of all things 3D characters, both two legged and four legged. All of this work is very polished, and is an excellent resource of inspiration.
Colorbleed has a new showreel packed with some awesome character work, among other things. They have a wide range of work and design style, so that a compilation like this really shows the diversity.

Do you like creating your own CG worlds for green screen footage? The Mill worked with NBC to create a series of vignettes for the show “Heroes Reborn,” each having their own unique composite with special effects. This is a great reference for any type of composite job since most of these principles apply universally across the board.
Are you into liquid simulation? Check out Mathematic’s new reel dedicated to their work with CG fluids. Some scenes are more obvious than others in terms of what needed fluid simulation, while some are really mind-blowing.
This is the perfect example of taking a sport as violent as UFC, and making a show package that feels modern yet grungy. The lack of 3D was an interesting way to go for something like this, and proved that not everything needs to be over the top CG. The fact that the top UFC fighters were available for the promo certainly adds another level to the treatment.
