Check out the latest and greatest from Limerick Studios out in North Carolina! They have a lot of great new work on their vimeo page, and don’t miss their fresh new reel at Limerick.com
Limerick used Renderfeed and their services to complete a job that would have been near impossible to create in house. Since the quality of the renders had to be extremely high to get the look the studio wanted Limerick came to Renderfeed for some extra power. Since it was a broadcast package there were many different animation elements to render out using Renderfeed saved valuable time getting jobs out of Cinema4D!
Free Cinema 4D asset by Berd and news on his latest project for Rayban – Read the interview to download
We wanted to let you know that Berd, our artist of the month, has graciously agreed to donate a free Cinema4D asset to our audience. You can download Berd’s free C4D house, which was part of his fantastic Jubail city render, by clicking on this link: DOWNLOAD C4D FILE!
We have also just had news about Berd’s latest work, a new project for Rayban titled “Made of Music”. Working for creative agency Stinkdigital alongside 3 other designers, Berd created a very unusual music machine. This machine turns tweets into typographic music videos that will react to music. Fun! You can try it by clicking on this link: https://made-of-music.com/464115579100872705. A sample of the resulting musical art is shown as part of Berd’s portfolio on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/96694071. Enjoy this very creative experiment…
Saw this great tutorial on how complex and beautiful Mograph and Thinking Particles can be together. Head over to greyscalegorilla.com and check out the goodness!
In this tutorial Simon will show how to work (or play-around) with Thinking Particles to build event-based particle systems. He also shows how to combine TP with mograph so you can create a particle system then add a more complexity to your animation with your favourite Mograph-effectors.
VRAYforC4D forum user Shockwave (Marc) presents this great exploration of material generation and lighting techniques.
From Capacity’s Site: “We teamed up with our friends at Olson again for the latest installment of our typographically-driven Northwestern Mutual spots and campaign elements. These two :60 second tv commercials are the cornerstone of NM’s latest advertising push, synchronized with March Madness and their new partnership with the NCAA. In addition to these spots, we also created several coordinated print and digital pieces to be featured in Forbes and Sports Illustrated, among others.”
Renderfeed: Murat, first of all, thank you very much for taking the time to sit down with us. Can you start out by telling us a little bit about yourself and about your central statement: “I am refractive and my art is the refraction of my life.”?
(Murat) Although I don’t like using words to describe my work, I actually did write this statement. I see life experience as light and whenever it passes through a prism, it is being refracted. I see myself as water or as a diamond that disperses light in the rainbow colors. Whatever happens in my life is being translated and painted on a canvas. Art is refraction to me.
Renderfeed: Let’s travel back to your childhood: You had a very multinational upbringing: born in Prague, a childhood spent in Paris, High School in Ankara…How did this influence your work?
(Murat) Well, I do not really remember my childhood. It is like I was someone else. So consciously nothing really influenced my work. I guess I was a happy child.
Renderfeed: What were the major artistic influences that shaped your life? Did you admire any artists in particular?
(Murat) I don’t really get influenced or inspired, I always prefer experimenting new concepts and techniques. I enjoy the works of Erwin Olaf. Storm Thorgerson, who sadly pasted away last year, is also one of my favorite artists.
Renderfeed: Did you go to university and if so, what did you study? If university wasn’t part of your plans after graduating from high school, what led you to the decision to jump straight into work?
(Murat) I subscribe to the motto of “We don’t need no education”. I went to Istanbul Bilgi University and studied Photography/Video. I went there as […]
