Cinematics from Pier Paolo on Vimeo.

Cinematics is a timeline of classic films and characters. It’s a experimental project that I did in my spare time. Check the complete project: behance.net/gallery/Cinematics/14304321

All the sound was made by Marcelo Baldin (combustion.ws). He did a fantastic job remixing famous movie themes and blended altogether with a pinch of Aphex Twin’s Donkey Rhubarb.

The Cinematics lettering was also made by me, and right now I’m working on a complete family for this font and I hope to launch it soon!

If you liked this piece, you should definitely check this guys out: Ariel Costa and His Alphabetic animation (vimeo.com/40110798), and Antonio Vicentini’s Camera Collection (vimeo.com/41336551).

Special thanks for my big friend Ricardo Bess (ricardobess.com/) and all the guys from Cafundo Studio.

Plinko Poetry! from Inessah Selditz on Vimeo.

PLINKO POETRY MACHINE- An interactive playful installation by Deqing Sun and Inessah Selditz. With roots in The Price Is Right and experimental blackout poetry- every player can be both a winner and a poet!

Drawing source text from current @nytimes and @FoxNews tweets, players can absurdly re-contextualize news headlines that are often overloaded with meaning.

The interface of Plinko Poetry uses Processing to display alternate scrolling lines of current tweets from the New York Times and Fox News. When a user drops a chip, it randomly hits pegs on the way down. The word under each peg that is hit is highlighted, with the untouched pegs automatically darkened.

Plinko Poetry uses openFrameworks camera color tracking to determine which pegs have been encountered. When the chip comes to a stop, the user is left with a trail of blackout poetry which is then live tweeted to @PlinkoPoetry. Ultimately users will create a new corpus of ever changingpoetic text based on the zeitgeist of current headlines.

ADBNE 2013 – Opening Titles from BREEDER on Vimeo.

Double-exposures in motion.

Desktop Magazine’s Create Design Award for Motion
Australian Production Design Guild Award for Title Design

Breeder was invited back to create the opening titles for Analogue/Digital, so once again, we threw ourselves into the project and didn’t hold back. This year, we developed an ambitious aesthetic based upon the idea of double exposure, inspired by Alabaster’s amazing track and the conference’s program design. We worked around the theme of binary, juxtaposing the urban sprawl and nature, black and white, flight and fall, and unification and disintegration. It was a labour of love and we couldn’t be prouder with the end result.

'City Lights' is the final chapter from my “Trilogy of Light” series that began a couple years ago with 'LA Light' and then followed up with 'Nightfall'. It was an nightly adventure that took me to almost every angle of Los Angeles. It was an exercise in patience. A lesson in light. An understanding of what it is to live amongst each other and to understand the system and order of a city, the seemingly complex organics that make it up and the life form that the city truly is. A visualization of sonder. It was a daily jaunt to watch the arterial freeway systems pump car cells through its body and channel them to the capillaric avenues that are our neighborhoods and homes. It was a chance to break away from the 70mph freeway perspective and to observe the sun slip from view and watch the electric dance of nightfall begin. It was challenging. It was frustrating. Definitely dangerous at times. Sometimes it hurt. I was chased. Yelled at. Warned. But the overall context of things learned, people met, things seen, and places discovered over the past three years shaped who I am today. I didn't always love Los Angeles but I learned to and discovered that this city is much more than temperate weather, palm trees, pretty girls, and beaches; to me the true beauty behind the city lies hidden on the other end of a rusted fire escape to a view no one else has seen.

I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my film making career where I will be concentrating on narrative and documentary films.

Thanks for watching, reading, and supporting my films.


I will be running a limited series of high quality Kodak Endura VC metallic prints based on each series of shots. If you are interested in purchasing them, please email me at crich@deer-dog.com with the shot (timecode).
