Serious Film Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride | Dr. Grob's Animation Review Director: Tim Burton & Mike JohnsonRelease Date: September 23, 2005Rating: ★★★★Review: The shy Victor and Victoria are forced by their unsympathetic parents to marry each other. Luckily, they actually like each other, but then Victor accidentally marries the deceased Emily who takes him to a world underground, while Victoria is forced to marry the evil lord Barkis… ‘Corpse Bride’ is a typical Tim Burton film, especially in its art direction, in its 19th century, gothic setting, in its dark humor, and in its jolly portrait of death. Also, the art of ‘Corpse Bride’ is a great improvement on ‘Nightmare before Christmas’. All this make ‘Corpse Bride’, together with that other stop-motion film ‘Wallace and Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit‘, the best animated feature of 2005/2006, surpassing all computer animated films of those years. Watch the tailer for ‘Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride’ yourself and tell me what you think: Like this: Like Loading... Related In "Aardman Studio films" Robots In "★★½"

Using Toys and Forced Perspective to Get Professional, Low-Budget Visual Effects While working on a feature film called The Grind, filmmaker Vashi Nedomansky had to come up with a way to shoot a flashback scene, complete with Humvee, in the desert of Iraq. The only problem? He had neither Iraq, nor a Humvee to work with. Fortunately, he did have the sand dunes outside of Los Angeles and a 1:18 scale model of a Humvee purchased at Walmart for $23. As Nedomansky explains on his blog, “In filmmaking, sometimes the simplest solution will be the cheapest, most realistic and easiest. That’s the situation he found himself in with this Humvee scene. As you can see in the clip at the top, it turned out pretty well. Normally, a professional miniatures shot like this would take some serious time to set up, but as Nedomansky explains, you don’t always have that luxury. To find out more about the setup for this scene, and hear about the experience from the man himself, be sure to head over to his website by clicking here. (via Imaging Resource)

Aprenda Unity - Curso de Desenvolvimento de Jogos Directing Motion Tour Sneak Peek: Breaking Down a Scene from Spielberg's 'Empire of the Sun' As a director or cinematographer, knowing how and when to move the camera is an extremely important skill, and it’s something that takes a lot of practice to get better at. One way to get a better sense of how camera movement can affect a scene is to dissect what the greatest directors and directors of photography have done with their films. That’s partly what commercial director Vincent Laforet is doing with his Directing Motion Tour, which starts on May 6th. He’s uploaded a snippet of some of the things he’ll be covering during the workshop — here is a coverage breakdown of a scene from Empire of the Sun, directed by Steven Spielberg and shot by Allen Daviau: Here’s how the idea of this tour started: Then something interesting happened, nearly 3 months ago I broke my arm and suddenly had far too much time on my hands with little to do but stay as still as possible and heal… what to do? Well that’s how the Directing Motion Tour was born. More from Laforet on the workshop: Links:

The Cinematography of "The Incredibles" Part 3 See Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.Continuing with my case study of the shot compositions from Pixar's film "The Incredibles". All images used here are ©Disney/Pixar (unless otherwise stated). Cinematography is the art of composing the scenes of the film so they can visually tell the story in a functional and creative way. The purpose of composition is to direct the viewer's eye to the central point or "story" in your scene. Regardless of the particular subject, composition of the frame is important. The Incredibles has accomplished an appealing, efficient and artistic way of shooting all the sequences of the film to truly place the audience inside this world, and thus allow the viewers to get lost in the story. Look at the sequence above; An establishing shot of the island that Bob is being transported to. In Illustration, Photography and Advertising Design - the arrangement of graphic elements, colors and lighting create a flow and direct viewers' eyes to certain area in a composition.
