The week it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to (26.10.18)

Game Changers

Literally. A sneak peak in the press of upcoming activity from the Rides squad at the IAAPA Expo this November, as we partner with Canadian ride engineering specialists CAVU to bring new, interactive builds to the market



Congratulations to Sharon Lock and Yukari Schrickel of Design Studio fame, who created this gorge music video for Cheval Sombre’s ‘Grand Canyon’. Made with a nifty combo of AfterEffects, cel animation and wood type hand letterpress, printed in our own London ‘hood at St. Bride’s Foundation, it’s a masterclass in motion magic

If you’re interested in picking up similar mad type skillz just minutes away from 28CL, check out the Foundation’s upcoming line-up right here

Also winning  – OH IT’S YOU GUYS. What’s up Staff Awards winners Autumn 2018?

Mike McGee took the stage at the SMPTE Symposium in LA, amongst ‘the world’s most innovative technology leaders’ (no drama)

Adrien Saint Girons brought Joi to the masses at FITC #IdeasInMotion, speaking on Blade Runner 2049

Recruitment’s Amy Smith and Annie Barlow hit up Cardiff (with Hulk), to continue ACCESS:VFX’s grand national tour

The team’s travels inspired one of the cutest internal videos I have seen to date: proudly presenting OUR WELSH TALKING HEADS (a click through to Front has never been so worthy)

One of said Welsh, Tim Webber, features in this article from Unreal on #virtualproduction, #gratuitoushashtag

Party in the footnotes

No place I’d rather be on a Friday eve. Fresh in Internet finds:

File it under writing porn, this top-notch punnery makes you (me) proud to be British

Calling it now, new in #holidayspam, it’s the Titanic II #jackandroseselfie

AI artwork. Sold, but I’m not sold

Soothe your emotional crises (like our impending goodbye) with Netflix’ top binge races, it’s a term, look it up

Dragging it out with a sunset. It’s a metaphor (cheers SKelly)

And with that, the end. #181 out 🙋
