Here’s a lovely collection I stumbled across over the weekend: projects from Umeric, a Sydney-based CG studio with worldwide representation. If you spend some time in their archives, you’ll see the magical little touches that unify their portfolio: an almost comedic application of motion, a brilliant application of color, and a matting style that isn’t quite realistic, isn’t quite artificial.
You can follow along with your Vimeo stream as well. They say on their Vimeo page that they buy a new maneki neko every time they successfully finish a project, and frankly, I wanna see that.
