The Short and Simple Story of the Credit Crisis: Vimeo

OK you may, or may not agree with the content, but it’s a nice example of how simple graphic style can be used to communicate effectively.

One thing that you are taught about teaching well is the importance of pace and this certainly has it.

Another great vid from Vimeo.
The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

The Third & The Seventh: Vimeo

A beautiful piece by Alex Roman. His request is ‘fullscreen it, please.’ I have to add, if you can, play it through a good sound system or headphones.

A FULL-CG animated piece that tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view where main subjects are already-built spaces. Sometimes in an abstract way. Sometimes surreal.

I found this the other day and thought about the visual appeal of the video and saved the draft to upload later. In the interim though I thought about how the video was done, having noted that is was shot on a Canon 550D.

I guess this explains the technology,

Full HD movie recording

The EOS 550D combines exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot Full HD (1080p) video. To satisfy your creativity the EOS 550D features full manual control and selectable frame rates. You can also shoot high speed 50/60fps movies at 720P for when the action is really fast. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any HDTV. Also with compatible TVs playback can be controlled using the TV’s remote control.
