The Art of FLIGHT

I watched The Art of FLIGHT yesterday and it felt like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer and hello to winter. I really can’t wait to go snowboarding. Sure, I will enjoy fall too. And there will some exciting things happening…

Internship Presentation

Graduation week has started in Karlskrona, and many of my classmates are back there. Today we all presented our learnings, and what we have done during these 7 months. Since Nina, Theo, Henrik, Alexander, John, and I are still in New York, we made a movie with our answers. Above is a screengrab from my interview, and the whole movie will be public shortly.

TRON: LEGACY

I just came back from the movie theater where I watched Tron: LEGACY. And not just that I saw it in IMAX 3D, amazing. I can’t even describe it. If you haven’t seen it yet, go! Above is the music video from Daft Punk’s Derezzed.

New bed

I bought a new bed yesterday which will be delivered to the apartment tonight. Markus went with me to the store and he is really the best. I got my bed with a $260 discount, pretty good. Now I’m just hoping that it will be my bed that is delivered and not some red sports car frame…

Tokyo

This clip really made me curious about Tokyo. It’s seems to be such a cool place. Way different from what I’ve seen and experience, and that is way it feels so interesting.

Secret code

I just talked to Ola about the movie he, Josue, Kristian, Andreas, and Rasmus created. They have one account on YouTube, and one on Vimeo, but both are set to private as of now. So the question he had was when to put them to public. The thing is that there is one secret code hidden in the movie, so it would be cool to see if anyone saw it and used it to log in to the invite site.

Workshop: RealFlow

Elias Widerdal and Sam Brandhildh had a workshop in RealFlow today at 3pm. I wasn’t sure if I was going, since I had never really opened Cinema 4D before, yet not worked in it by myself. And RealFlow? But I did go and it was really fun.

I got a demo version of RealFlow and with some help I think I did pretty good. What we did was working with the particles and different types of liquid.

When I got home I created this movie below. I’m quite proud. Like I said, I’ve never worked in Cinema 4D or with RealFlow before. Nor have I rendered a movie.

Interview

Tobias

I got the question to do an interview for Hyper Island. I test version you can say. But nothing we do is ever in simple-mode, so tonight I had the help from Henrik Porseland, Tobias Bergström, and Alexander Rosén to record and film the interview. Even if it was my own questions I had to answer, I found it kinda hard. I never said the same thing twice and the whole situation was quite funny.


The camera recorded in a strange format, so at the moment Henrik is converting all the film material into .mov files so that we can continue the editing tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll then also get some help from Sam Brandhildh who is awesome at motion design.

Movie: Objectified

objectified

Every object tells a story if you know how to read it” -Henry Ford

The co-workers at Hyper Island wanted us to see the movie Objectified, so the class coordinator Tobias Bergström arranged three times we could watch it. I saw it today. I think it is interesting how design exists in everything around us, even in nature.

This is what is says on Objectified:
Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.
