Dead Set Credits

I’ve just watched the re-run of Charlie Brooker’s excellent Dead Set on E4. No long list of cast and crew at the end, just a URL.

I’ve seen this done once before… Chris Morris’ Jam.

It’s great to see Brooker use this technique to combat his dreaded foe, the “end credit squeeze”.

Kudos to these guys for finding a way to thank the team properly.

Awesome film posters with brand integration

I went to see Quantum Of Solace last week but found myself getting massively frustrated watching scenes from the film in ads for a shit watch and a crap phone just before the start.

Product placement is often backed up with “Brand X. Official Partner of..” advertising nowadays. That was annoying, but these are brilliant.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is hot property at the moment. Using Motion Capture and modeling you can create amazing animations in a full 3D environment.

We just used some in a pitch and the client was blown away.

Until recently you needed to spend a good amount of money to get the most out of AR.

That’s just changed.

Using only a webcam and the latest version of Papervision / FLARToolkit library, Digital Pictures have taken their character from the desktop to the desk.

It’s offers a new and exciting way to interact with flash content. The possibilities are wide open.

Papervision – Augmented Reality (extended) from dpinteractive on Vimeo.

Having messed around with AR for the last 3 months I’ve gotta say that getting this working in Flash is a mightily impressive achievement.
