    ‘Recurrence’: Short Film Shows Infinite Fractal Zoom (Video)

    Filmmaker Julius Horsthuis has a new short film that starts as a slow zoom into a sprawling CGI cityscape that he created. How do you know it’s not a real city, or a simulation of one? Because the zoom keeps on going forever, fractal-like, which also explains why the short film is called Recurrence. If […]

    ‘The Emoji Movie’ is Real, Has Trailer and Everything (Video)

    There seems to be nothing under the sun that won’t eventually be turned into a movie. I could list some illustrative examples with a made-up joke or two mixed in, but they would all pale in comparison to the very real The Emoji Movie, which now has a ::three fire emoji:: trailer on the internet.

    ‘Face Lift’: CGI Head Gets the Adult Swim Treatment (Video)

    Every once in a while Adult Swim comes out with a short film that captures the viral imagination, quickly becoming worn out after a week or so (remember Too Many Cooks?).

It’s called Spatial Bodies, and it depicts a city skyline that’s not likely to be seen in […]

    ‘Roller Coaster Tycoon’ Shown From Guests’ Perspective (Video)

    If you remember the computer game Roller Coaster Tycoon, you’ll probably appreciate this new video from AndrewMFilms, the guy who also made that LEGO: First-Person Shooter video a while ago. Like that video, A Fun Day in Roller Coaster Tycoon combines really good computer effects with a fun and imaginative premise – in this case, […]

    ‘Digital Cosmetics’: VFX Artist Demonstrates De-Aging Technique (Video)

    There’s a video making the rounds online that’s sure to grab the attention of every single person older than, oh, I’ll say 40, in Hollywood. It’s called Digital Cosmetics, and it’s a demonstration of Rousselos Aravantinos’s VFX work in NUKE and MOCHA Pro to make actress Michele Valley look at least 20 years younger. The […]

    #HYPERREALCG: Totally Realistic Computer-Generated Images (Pics)

    We all know that computer generated imagery is getting more and more advanced and realistic by the day. Even so, most people probably think they can tell a computer generated image from a “real” one, especially if they have plenty of time to concentrate on it.
