Have a look at the beautiful opening sequence for “Pocko/Magma” — it’s for an animated film that accompanies a touring exhibition of customized Russian Matryoshka dolls — featuring the illustrative work of Chisato Shinya (Kinpro). I love the homage to the Dr. No opening at the start. Via Motionographer.


Urban Abstract

The video above, “Urban Abstract,” is a project that was created in Tokyo for a Finnish TV channel, a collaboration between art director Jopsu Ramu and Shun Kawasaki (Artless).

Urban Abstract is a journey across urban space that unfolds in forty, 5 second parts. The journey, in one, two and three dimensions, is a bit like abstract sur?ng in which the original destination is only reached a er a number of seemingly random yet linked detours occur. Points , lines, planes and other abstract elements create a journey through an Urban Abstract.
