Last time we talked about VFX, we covered everything up to the turn of the century, where bullet time and CGI were just starting to change the game. But movies today are enhanced (or perhaps overloaded) with a amazing technologies that can bring almost anything to life. Here’s how we got here. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/9AGRm What did you think of the list? Did you agree or disagree with our choices? Do you have a pick for a so-so movie that’s elevated by amazing effects?

This is nicely detailed Nike spot created by the great folks over at Digital Domain that is very reminiscent of the effects pioneered in Hollow-Man. Really well animated, lit and rendered. It premiered at the annual 2012 Nike Innovation Summit on February 21, is a performance-driven expression of how the shoes are knit seamlessly to fit to a runner's foot like a second skin.

For more information about this film please visit the links below: SYNOPSIS Through the eyes of a young girl suffering from mental illness, CALDERA glimpses into a world of psychosis and explores a world of ambiguous reality and the nature of life and death. DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT CALDERA is inspired by my father's struggle with schizoaffective disorder. In states of delusion, my father has danced on the rings of Saturn, spoken with angels, and fled from his demons. He has lived both a fantastical and haunting life, but one that's invisible to the most of us. In our differing understanding of reality, we blindly mandate his medication, assimilate him to our ma...

The Wisdom of Failure: Building a Culture of Creative Problem Solving Failure is fundamental to the process of innovation: businesses and organizations thrive on cycles of trial and error, research and development, and creative destruction. When it comes to developing the next generation of vaccines, transportation systems, or mobile phone applications, knowing what might work often requires knowing what doesn't work and why. Yet all too often, students, universities, and countless organizations find themselves trapped in a success-at-all-costs culture, with too few opportunities for the failure and experimentation that ultimately leads to innovation. How can we embrace failure as both a necessary part of the entrepreneurial and design process and as a critical element for ongoing accou...

Today, half of the world’s population lives in cities—and by 2030, there will be five billion urban dwellers. With an estimated five million migrants moving to cities each month, the rapid pace of urbanization globally has left many with limited access to essential services, most notably affecting the one billion people living in slums. Despite this, urban dwellers have built a $10 trillion informal economy. They have used their cities as laboratories of innovation and entrepreneurship, and have worked to create solutions that bridge gaps in the provision of financial services, health care, and transportation. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can: • identify tools that can be used to unlock the inherent innovation occurring in cities, helping resi...
In isolation, profit-driven strategies and philanthropic approaches alone cannot overcome the obstacles to achieving broad and sustainable development. Hybrid solutions such as impact investing—which integrate financial profits with pro-social and environmental objectives—can generate both financial returns for investors and social returns for communities. Latin America is emerging as a hub for innovative financing structures for development, including social impact bonds and novel ways to support, incubate, and expand social entrepreneurial efforts. This session will examine how partnerships between entrepreneurs, investors, and communities are using innovative financing to create concrete change for those living at the base of the pyramid. Moderator: Nicole Etchart, Co-founder and Co-CE...

With new innovative CGI technology it's time to bring back a childhood classic, CatDog!
There's a sign upon your door
I ain't workin' anymore
There's a hoe out in the sun
Where you left a row half done
I said 'Hoe-in' ain't no fun'
You ain't got no ambition
Gone fishin' - by a shady, wady pool
Gone fishin' - man, you really play it cool
We don't wish to be annoyed, Mister John,
And Mister Floyd, we're fishin'
Instead of just a-wishin'
We're fishin' instead of just a-wishin'
