The fantastic Journey of Wool

London studio Neon mixes live action and CG in this finely spun yarn.

By Steve Jarratt

The world-famous Woolmark logo adorns quality woolen products, assuring that it's 100% pure wool. As a part of its ongoing promotional activity, The Woolmark Company asked Neon, a boutique studio in London, to make a short film describing the different stages of the wool production process, from sheep to suit.

The brief for 'Lost and Found' was simple but challenging, says Tom Bridges, managing director of Neon. "Woolmark wanted us to describe the process of wool production in an entertaining way. How we did that was up to us and, after some thought, we came up with the idea of showing the process from the perspective of a piece of wool. We won the pitch in January, and then spent a couple of months refining the script. Woolmark gave us an entirely free hand with the look and feel."

The first step was to undertake research, gathering relevant reference material and planning the spot. "Storyboarding and script development took two months, off and on," comments Tom. "We had a very clear idea of the style from an early point: we wanted to create shots that were photo-realistic – yet visually and physically impossible. Our film 'Macro' was a starting point for a lot of what we were trying to do."

Who would like to have a little contest?

I would!

The contest I am thinking of would be for the creation of the Group Twitter header.  The dimensions would of course have to adhere to the Twitter specs of 1500 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall.  The reward for the winner will be a one year DeviantART premium membership.  

Deadline for entry is May 1st, 2015 after which judging will take place.  The Contest is open to all Group members only, however no further restrictions will be placed on where you live.

In order to facilitate this contest, I will create an additional temporary folder called "Contest Entry".

The contest entry images must be submitted to the appropriate gallery (as stated above) as a fully downloadable JPEG image.

Hello! I'm assuming this group has pretty high standarts for 3D art , Are .. less-experienced artists allowed to post here?

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.
