Fibonacci Zoetrope

Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures from Pier 9 on Vimeo.

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

John Edmark is an inventor/designer/artist. He teaches design at Stanford University.

Hello Play

Hello Play NYE promo from Greg Barth on Vimeo.


Hello Play Making-Of from Greg Barth on Vimeo.

A promotional video I created for Hello Play, a Belgian online electronic music platform.
This surreal and retro interpretation of electronic music was driven by a concept to create a beat using instruments that glitch and deform according to the sound they produce, creating a visual landscape that reflects the sonic one.

10 Seconds

10 Seconds from The Pressure on Vimeo.

Mike Heist has been working in the neon industry in Portland, Oregon for 30 years. He is a master in his craft, and is responsible for the bending of some of the city’s most iconic signage. 10 SECONDS is a short film about work and happiness, and shares a bit of Mike’s thoughts and insight into the amazing process of hand-made neon signage.

The Pressure designed the sign as a component of event branding for the AIGA Portland event “Design and Happiness,” a lecture by Stefan Sagmeister during Design Week Portland. We thought that this video would add some depth to the concept, and we hope you enjoy it.

Toms – 1 for 1

TOMS // The TOMS Story from Giant Ant on Vimeo.

A great brand with an inspirational story…

TOMS charged us with telling their origin story. And tell we did!

We used TOMS’ word-of-mouth marketing strategy as inspiration for a story told by many voices. The script was read by TOMS employees that had been there from the beginning including, of course, Blake Mycoskie.

TOMS didn’t start with an idea for a shoe. In fact, it was the absence of the shoe that started it all… – Giant Ant

Animated wall

Plumb from caleb wood on Vimeo.

An amazing concept for an animation.

A continuous vertical freehand digression.

I was invited to install some animation at the Prøve Gallery in Duluth MN. I set out drawing columns of free hand animation directly onto the gallery wall. “Plumb” is the film product of the installation.

While you are Steeping…

While You Were Steeping: Geoff McFetridge from Bigelow Website Team on Vimeo.

If you know of Geoff McFetridge then you would have seen his simple style of smooth lines and curves before; A great little short of him Steeping in style.

The first in a series of films showcasing what you can do while you are steeping…
“To soak (food or tea) in water or other liquid so as to extract its flavour or to soften it”
