Oddity helped Grafala with some of the many projections during the one and a half hour show. If you threw a rock in any direction during this once in a lifetime show there was a very real chance of hitting a celebrity or star in the head. I therefore eventually stopped throwing them.…

22nd May

A couple of animated scenographic pieces were produced for a large stage show at the Suntopia Hotels in Turkey. This time Gangsters and Casinos… were the themes.
There is nothing wrong with your current viewing device, the images were projected onto an oval screen. Wait a minute..that does not really guarantee that your device is not faulty in some way. My bad. Stay alert.

Oddity.Tunguska.se Site

Posted by Oddity in motion, Webdevelopment. No Comments

21st May

Check out the collaboration website of Oddity and Tunguska – oddity.tunguska.se     Built with php, html5 and css3 using popcorn.js for some features. (Popcorn is basically a toolset for syncing stuff on your site with a video using javascript )  The design is inspired but the concept of the sketch, the unfinished rough idea put onto paper; often beautiful in it’s own way. A type of aesthetic we like.  The site is only in Swedish at the moment, but try google-translate, although I  haven’t tried it myself.
The video is just a exercise in website case-studies. It´s basically some browsing, showing off features and design.   It might be a tad to long and boring ;-) Feel free to use the video timeline scrollbar in a rough manner :-)…

Svansjön (Swan lake)

Posted by Oddity in motion. No Comments

9th May

Oddity animated hoards of cockroaches in 2d and 3d to respond to the moves of the live dancers of the show. Particle & Dynamic simulations were used to make the critters fall off in a realistic way.
 The show in question is the brainchild of  former “Bounce” member Fredrik ”Benke” Rydmans. This is his version of the famous Swan Lake ballet. This time with a lot of new modern music and variations of street dance. The insects were ordered to go by production company Grafala whom was in charge of all other animation and graphics for the show. Some kind of video representation will be put here soon.

This project was among the last to be produced by notorious FilmTecknarna before they stopped to exist as a production company. On this project Oddity made several scenes/environments in “2.5D” using After Effects. 2.5D can be explained as 3d made only with flat planes. These planes are often derived from a single original photograph which is cut up and un-distorted.
