    Art of the Title: Smokin' Aces

    May 1, 2012, 8:23 am
    High-contrast colors and a soulful beat instantly transport the viewer back to films of the ’60s and '70s to revisit the story they just experienced in this main-on-end title sequence. Hep assassins brandish guns and shoot pool, a cop takes a rending shot to the gut, and a femme fatale calmly looks down the sights of her iron: still images captured as if with a rostrum camera.

Percentage-wise, the Animation Guild’s overall ratification vote ran 68% higher than in 2012.

      San Andreas VFX Breakdown

      August 27, 2015, 12:36 pm
      Cinesite delivered a major visual effects sequence for the Warner Bros. production San Andreas. As the first earthquake of the film strikes, a young woman driving alone in the Los Angeles mountains veers off the road, through a barrier and over a cliff. Hanging precariously in her car above the canyon, she phones for help. Cinesite’s visual effects cover this entire exciting sequence, as the team attempt to rescue her from their helicopter.

      The Philosophy Behind Riveting Story Telling

      August 27, 2015, 6:37 am
      Story is the most important part of any video. Great story trumps great visuals, amazing audio or an intricate edit every time. As a photographer, you’ve been a visual storyteller for as long as you’ve captured still images so I’m not gonna waste your time on how to craft visual content that tells a compelling story designed to change the viewers mind.
