Yesterday I managed to watch CARS. I know I am late but it was worth it...And I was blasted... I love their style of visualising things. But most of all it is the whole package. They have a nice, cute story which is realy catching. And a long the fantastic story they were able to give the cars a heard and a soul. The face expressions and everything was turning cold metal to warm personalities. Everything reminded of cars the lanscape had a shape of cars even some little flying cars were littel bugs. This movie is definitely a must seen for old and young ones... Especially those who like CGI... ;)

hey... another post about a movie. This one is dedictaed to the Pirates of the caribbean movie. It is the second part of the sequal and it comes with a lot more cg effects than part one. Main effects where produced by ILM - Industrial Light and Magic . They developed a new motion capturing technique which does not have to have special lightning or other enviroments. The new technique allows "actors" to play there role ones and the captured data can be used - so no bluescreen room sessions are needed.
This is a big advantage compared to KING KONG and Lord of the Rings where Serkis played the his role ones with the other actors and after that the same scene where recorded in bluescreen envirement for mo-cap.
Beside the mo-cap davy jones is a cg-character which was commented by the critiques as very good make up and etc. So surfacing was done excellent. One of the tools which have been used is ZBRUSH.
Here is an ZBRUSH interview with ILM
AND some HIGH-RES-Pics
for all people who are interessted in cg effects this is a musst seen. And the end is open for part 3....

Or whenever people sit in their garden and have a barbecue they are always blame you for beeing to loud. When kids walk through the streets and have some fun - the blame them for beeing to loud. It is always the same. And especialy when the weather is that hot, I mean you can't just be inside...
It is getting realy nice outside (at night). Ok, we have those kids, which are still partying outside around 1 o'clock at night... they sing or they talk (a little louder) but after a while, you know they will be gone. And these retiree's they cannot stand that but...
This morning at 5.45 o'clock 2 older women were talking together. Hey! it is Saturday! I had a hardworking week. And they spoke with such a clear, loud voice that I woke up. I thought ohhh man. Hopefully they shut the f*** up and let me sleep. But it turned out to a whole invasion.
More and more of them came and were talking and talking. Like a chicken farm. Now it was somehow 6.15 and I thought to myself someone has to stop the invasion and bring peace back on earth and to this morning. There were almost like 50-60 of them. But I was not realy able to stop them... because I was still so tyred but this noise was driving me nuts. It was so loud and so many of them... Suddenly I heard a low droning noise. It was almost like a big vacuum cleaner which came to suck them all away... And I was almost right. It was the bus - thank god! It looks like a coach tour which was starting at 6.30 o'clock.
But why the hell do you have to be out there at 5.45? Is this payback? And why so loud? Why can't that be during the week? You are a retieer - you have time! Within 5 minutes there was peace on earth again... the big vacuum cleaner sucked them all away =)
And now we are even - we do night barbecue's and you guy's can go on coach tours...
I know, I might understand it when I am old but that would be another story... (kids)...

I think this is going to be another great, cute story with fantastic pictures so far...
I am interessted in how it turns out because the trailers grow with the project. This is something interesting to see in the cars trailer. If you watch the first one even the main actor got a design review... so let's see what we can expect because it is still a Year to go. Release date is Summer 2007 (so far)... stay tuned for mo

It was such a power game and in the last minute in overtime - GOAL.
I looked around and all the guys had the same face expression - this could not be true. But it was!
But seeing all the people so enthusiastic for the last weeks was realy great. I hope this lasts longer. Because it is not all about soccer... there was mo(re). Looks like the people just waited for a reason to express there feelings that it cannot be all about politics, war, the gas prices. And it is that sport got the renascence of being a globaly connector between all kind of folks in all kind of countries. This feeling seemed to be so addictive that even people who have nothing to do with soccer started to get into it. They want to participate and they want just to ride that wave.
So lets go surfing as long as this new wind of emotions, motivation and power presents us that great wave to ride.
