Some graphic design porn courtesy of the graphic design team on the movie Oblivion.
Another good video for all you digital retrophiles out there.
The Dream Machine: Do you know what Scanimate is? Its an awesome machine made to make graphics and special effects for television back in the 70s and 80s. These guys were pioneering engineers and visual artists working with hardcore analogue electronics before motion graphics became the huge industry it is today.
“We sold a lot of terrible stuff for way to much money.”
Some of it was terrible sure but sometimes Scanimate was capable of some pretty cool imagery . You can buy the full documentary on DVD and read a bunch more about the history of Scanimate from the guy who owns the last functioning Scanimate system himself at scanimate.net. I’d like to see the entire documentary some time but I’d LOVE to try this thing out and make some of my own scanimations.
