Greed – Experimental Short

Over the past month and a half, I’ve been working on an abstract, experimental short focusing on the theme of “Greed”.  During brainstorm sessions and explorations, I came across a quote by Albert Einstein. “The stakes are immense, the task colossal, the time is short. But we may hope – we must hope – that man’s own creation, man’s own genius, will not destroy him.” That pretty much summed up exactly what I wanted to portray – Man’s greed as a driving force for progression, yet destruction as well. Are we destroying what truly matters for selfish growth and advancement? Do we as people naturally yearn and desire for more? There seems to be a very thin line between greed and ambition.

These are some of the questions and ideas I had floating around my head when I began creating my concept. I wanted to create something abstract that reinforced this theme without being completely obvious. I hope I did leave some room for interpretation. I am also intrigued with the idea of trying this for all 7 deadly sins. Here’s to more free time!

Lotsa New Stuff

It feels like I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. But I’ve really been hard at work making things look pretty with some fun stuff at work and some fun experimental stuff at home. A big update coming very very soon. In the meantime, check out some screenshots.

We recently launched the new Vespa USA site here at Last Exit. A great looking site that is already getting some nice recognition.

Nike is Better.

I find that sometimes I am the most creative/energetic when it is really late at night. Something about the peace and quiet of night helps me get lost in thoughts and ideas. The past couple nights I’ve been sketching and designing away in photoshop for a Nike advert. When I think of the best brands in the world, Nike is definitely one of the first that come to mind. I can close my eyes and picture so many memorable ad campaigns, tv spots and websites. They are truly better than their competitors in many aspects of their industry. To simply put it, Nike is better. That makes enough sense to me to start designing… 🙂

Burton storyboard

Not only does Burton have some of the best snowboarders in the world riding its boards and rocking its gear, it also has a pretty damn nice website. I’ve always wondered if their in-house team created it. I know JDK has done a lot of work for Burton, being in VT and all, but I didn’t see anything in their portfolio.

In any case, as my mind wonders from idea to idea, I started designing a storyboard. What started out as just some doodling, lead to some paint splatters, snow, Shaun White, and inevitably, Burton snowboarding. It’s been a great distraction as I brainstorm my short “film”. Below is a work in progress (click to enlarge). I’m pleased at the early results and eager to include this under my list of motion graphics work. Oh and by the way, if any head honcho from Burton is reading this, yes – I would love to design a snowboard for you guys. 🙂
