The Bear Cave

04 June 2009

The Bear Cave (Danny Miller and Mindy Ryu) sent us a note the other day with a link to their very nice portfolio. The above project was worked on with paper sculptor Jeff Nishinaka.

Always interesting to see who’s behind the mtv Movie Awards titles. This year it was Prologue, directed by Ilya Abulhanov (who also directed the insanely cool 2009 OFFF titles). See the montage here. Via Motionographer.

Carl Bender is a very recent grad from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Great work, thanks for the link!

David Lynch and his son Austin and his friend Jason took a 20,000 mile road trip across the US and shot 4-5 minute interviews with 121 strangers they met along the way. The project airs Monday on davidlynch.com, where there will be a new episode every 3 days. Catch the trailer, which is up now…

Gotta Moo

29 May 2009

For Narani Kannan’s final-year project at Ontario College of Art & Design, she designed and conceptualized an eco-friendly dairy product line called Gotta Moo. There’s so much I love about this project… every detail down to the “Sugarcane Bagasse molded pulp paper” has been carefully considered. She’s obviously on her way to being a design superstar. See more of her work on Behance.
