OSCARS 2015: CROSS YOUR FINGERS FOR “A SINGLE LIFE”



Cinema 4D powers Oscar®-nominated Animated Short Film from Job, Joris & Marieke.



A young woman, a slice of pizza and a mysterious vinyl single: these are the only ingredients needed for being nominated for an Oscar® - at least for the small Utrecht, Holland-based creative studio Job, Joris & Marieke! The small team relied on Cinema 4D as the primary application for the creation of “A Single Life” and used Cinema 4D’s toolset to handle the complexities of 3D content creation, including modeling, rigging, character animation, lighting, rendering and more.

Many of Job, Joris & Marieke's past works are characterized by their charming, imaginative stories, their unusual style, interesting music and lovingly designed characters (Mute, The Daily Drumbeat). Job, Joris & Marieke were guests at last year's MAXON user meetings in Düsseldorf and Munich, and their work was praised enthusiastically by the entire Cinema 4D community.

In the typical Job, Joris and Marieke style, “A Single Life” tells the story of Pia, a young woman who finds a mysterious vinyl single. As she spins the record she is suddenly able to travel back and forth through the years of her life. The three-member filmmaking team of Job Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw managed all aspects of “A Single Life”, including the original idea, writing, directing, design, animation, as well as creating the sound effects and composing the music...

Destruction



An event management company asked Trevor Kerr to supply video and image material for concerts. Motion graphics artist Trevor Kerr used Cinema 4D to bring his client’s vision to life!



By Meleah Maynard

For motion graphics artists who make concert visuals, creative direction often comes down to “Oh, make some kind of blinky thing.” So Trevor Kerr always appreciates when he gets to collaborate with clients on visuals that are more interesting and challenging, like a recent project he did for the international visual group, Comix. With “destruction” as the theme, Kerr was asked to create several clips for Comix’s library of stock footage for festivals.

With just five days to complete the project, Kerr used Cinema 4D, Turbulence FD, X-Particles and After Effects to create black-and-white, high-contrast clips with an epic landscape feel. For inspiration, Comix provided mood boards that included a few stills from Woodkid’s “Iron” video. “They also gave me stills showing columns of things crashing down, a frame with a rocky texture and smoke,” Kerr recalls...

Tracking success at the Commonwealth Games



When the BBC's own in-house CG specialist wasn't available, the Corporation turned to Xrayvision to help complete a preview for the Games

By Duncan Evans

With 25 years of broadcast experience at the BBC and a couple of Gold Awards at the PromaxBDA Global Excellence Awards in New York, Rob Shergold is used to having to produce quality work with demanding deadlines. So, it was no surprise when Nick Davey, Senior Designer at BBC News, called with a bit of a problem: the deadline was in a scant seven days.

Rob had set up a small independent design company called Xrayvision in order to produce work for a wider range of clients than what he covered at the BBC. There were other driving reasons, too: "I also wanted to be free of a purchasing bureaucracy where hardware and software upgrades can get lost for months or years in endless meetings and paperwork. I wanted to work with the best kit available. I signed up to Adobe Creative Cloud and upgraded the Lite version of Cinema 4D that came with After Effects to a full Studio license at a click of a button. And I sensibly bought MAXON's Service Agreement, which meant that when R16 came out the upgrade was automatic."

Rob explained why he chose Cinema 4D, "I'd used other 3D packages before but I knew Cinema 4D could produce beautiful results quickly. And with Cineware it had an easy-to-use workflow with After Effects, which itself had a much improved camera tracker. Without this workflow this job wouldn't have been possible in the time."

The job in question was this. As creative director of the piece, Nick Davey had shot a preview of the Commonwealth Games for the BBC, a big shoot involving steadicam, a camera drone, Sophie Raworth as presenter and access to the main stadiums in Glasgow. The footage needed camera tracking and various CG elements added – some simply decorative, some more technically illustrative - for example to show how the pitch at Hampden Park was raised two metres to accommodate the athletics track.

In total there were a dozen shots, which needed compositing, of which five were farmed out to Xrayvision, the rest completed in house at BBC News. Nick called Rob who explained the task he was facing, "To meet the deadline meant that every shot had to track perfectly first time. They didn't. Three of the shots were pans but without any parallax they are notoriously difficult to track and one was a pan over moving water. The other two were shot in large stadiums, where all the possible tracking points were in the stands with very few near the camera down on the pitch to give the much needed foreground reference."

Hiya, can anyone enlighten me as to why imported files from illustrator are shown as disconnected splines? For example, a square drawn in illustrator will appear in C4D R16 as having no right hand side. I'm trying to use a packaging cutter with the new Fold My Design feature but each individual shape requires the 'close spline' optioned ticked under the object tab, and even then it does not work with the FMD feature.
