History of Visual Effects

If you like visual effects and is always wonder how much a movie has visual effects, please do have a look at this documentary video.

Industrial Light & Magic – Creating the Impossible


Enter the Hyper Motion Cinema

What is the Hyper Motion Cinema (HMC)?

It is an animation format that is customised to showcase short film content. Currently HMC uses a mix of still photos, visual effects and animation to create the shorts.

For more information on HMC, do check them out at http://www.dsf.la/ . Their studio is at Hollywood.

I found the animated comic of 47 Ronin: The Samurai Spirit, refreshing as it isn’t the marvel style of comic book flipping but with nice switch of moving and still images. Here’s presenting their work with Universal Pictures, 47 Ronin: The Samurai Spirit

and of course, the original film trailer.

Different visual formats to tell a story. I prefer the one done with the Hyper Motion Cinema even though it may give a false impression of the actual finished final film as it does not use the same effects or cuts like the final film but looking at the standpoint of how marvel does their comic flips, I think it is still fine in this aspect. Fresh and interesting. Take your pick and let me know which is your favorite out of the two in terms of presentation.
