Sculptures by Stephane Halleux

The amazing sculptures of Stephane Halleux. These amazing sculptures are crafted from bits of leather and all kinds of off found objects, things that from another time that have been put together to create these little beauties. It’s crazy how much attention and detail go into these.

T28 Teaser Animation Test

This is the clips of some animation test for T28 teaser. Few shots of Black OX vs Tetsujin28. Enjoy!
Actually this is the bonus video on the T28 teaser website. I put it here to share with more people and actually I am not sure when the website will be removed.

Few Helvetica Clips


I am Helvetica

Helvetica, A Story

Arial & Helvetica
I believe Helvetica is the most popular Font Type in the world, you can find it everywhere in our daily lives. For the PC users don't want to pay to buy Helvetica font, They will use Arial instead. right? :) Window's Arial simialr/almost equal to Mac Helvetica.

T28 Teaser Characters

We uploaded The Tetsujin28 Teaser Website few months ago for audience comment and we collect a lot of positive feedback from international, as I checked the survey at 2 months a go, more than 80% vote that they want this movie to be made.
The website is still online, but I am not sure when will it be shut down. I love that project a lot. Here I captured the character images from the website (just in case the website disappear suddenly) I keep this for our memory.

I like Black OX redesign!

I do not satisfy with the human character design, as we reused and modified some of the existing asset to reduce cost... He turn out much more realistic than we expected, yes, he looks like a Harry Porter, this is one of idea on designing him. If I have chance, I will make him more stylize and less photo realistic.

Visit the website
You can also watch that at youtube or download the teaser from the website, check the information from my previous post

I still hope it can made someday in the future...

Happy Chinese New Year

去年搬上銀幕的動畫電影《阿童木》,票房欠理想,其所屬的製作公司Imagi Production Limited,被總公司「意馬國際控股」撤回財務資助,宣佈清盤,而日後有關數碼製作將會外判,二百五十名員工頓時淪為失業大軍,立法會議員李卓人估 計,連同欠薪、代通知金和遣散費,涉及一千萬元,批評「意馬」以外判形式「甩身」,不負責任,星期三將與員工會面,不排除發起靜坐行動。

上市公司意馬國際控股有限公司在港交所刊登公告指,為保存其有限流動資金及股東價值,宣佈撤回今年一月起,對其附屬公司Imagi Production Limited作出的財務資助,變相令子公司清盤,集團已於去年十二月終止聘用若干員工,目前餘下二百五十名員工,除留聘部份人才外,其他將不獲聘用。source:

上市公司意馬國際控股有限公司旗下炮製港產動畫電影《阿童木》的意馬動畫工作室,上周向三百多名員工宣布清盤,更表明無力支付遣散費及賠償,要求員工申請 破產欠薪基金,但至今未有交代詳情。協助員工的工聯會指,部分員工年資長達十年,初步計算欠薪連同代通知金及遣散費高達三千六百萬元,破欠基金需墊支達二 千萬元,批評母公司意馬國際不應袖手旁觀,刻意逃避責任將破欠基金當作提款機,促請勞工處調查事件。
意馬國際(00585)昨日發出公告,表示會裁減旗下負責動畫製作的附屬公司大部分人手,亦會向法院申請臨時清盤人,未來公司數碼製作部分會外判予 中國或其他地區的公司。該附屬公司共有二百五十名員工,除了部分在動畫製作具系統知識及經驗的專家外,其餘皆不會再聘用。意馬昨日股價大跌15.3%至 0.105元。



香港I.T.人協會會長彭兆威表示,現時香港約有二千多名動畫製作人員,分布於包括意馬等三間大型動畫製作公司,今次事件重大打擊本港動畫行業,亦相信會窒礙本港創意工業發展"。source: orientaldaily
