The Plight Of The Humble Bee

There has been a lot going on in the media (unfortunately not the main steam media), about the worldwide decimation of bee colonies. This has been brought on almost entirely by the overuse of pesticides and most specifically Neonicotinoids, which the bees unwittingly ingest whilst going about their business of pollenating the worlds crops and flora. If … Continue reading

Future City

Future City

This little project started out life as a few square blocks with some funky textures. I then added a reflective floor and suddenly, BOOM – It went all Tron. I resisted the temptation to emulate the movie, because firstly Im not good enough yet to create that level of 3D (But my Kung Fu is … Continue reading

They suit their environment because the scene is basic. It’s early days in the land of 3D and I’m not … Continue reading

Glass Flowers

So I finally dipped my toes into the world of 3D. Why I didn’t start earlier, I have no idea. Oh wait, I do, the cost of C4D, and Im too much of a pussy to get a cracked version. I’ve tried Modo and Blender and Element3D, all of which are amazing programs, but I … Continue reading

I’d done visuals for these guys in their previous carnation “Zej”, and had also worked on an experimental video for them for this project.Prelude With Attitude To explain, the project is a crossover of Classical music with Electronica, however unlike … Continue reading
