VFX of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

From Weta Digital.

The scope and diversity of visual effects work in the final film of the Hobbit trilogy was astounding. The integrated fx simulations produced for the destruction of Lake-town and new virtual stage tools developed to bring the epic CG battle sequences to life are notable highlights. See how it all came together in this behind the scenes look at the ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’.

Six Feet Under Main Title

Resurrecting an Art Form. TV got good again. Six Feet Under helped redefine what a TV show could be. We are proud to be a part of that ambition – to just make it better. The TV title sequence is a branding endeavor and a legitimate art form. It is the sole, consistent, and iconic moment that carries through a show’s lifespan and beyond. It’s what you remember most. DK is the most Emmy-nominated firm in the category. We seek assignments that tell a separate, parallel story. These are little art films really, that find their own voice, all while arming audiences with each show’s unique psychology and worldview.

Generac: Just a Drop

To communicate the value of Generac’s backup power generators in a weather emergency, marketing firm Bader Rutter and DK transported viewers into the heart of a storm. The spot opens from the perspective of one rain drop hurling toward earth, through rain and storm clouds, as a violent lightning strike blacks out an entire neighborhood. When our rain drop splashes down, we reveal that one homeowner was prepared for the storm – their Generac unit humming to life, restoring power.

The Man Who Turned Paper Into Pixels

It was the change that no-one saw coming: the idea that we could take a book, a painting or a song and send it through cables and wires and even thin air to the other end of the world – and it would be identical on the other side. But this idea underpins everything about the Information Age we live in.

How did we make such a mind bending transition into the digital world? And how does it work? It turns out it’s all based on a concept that is surprisingly beautiful in its simplicity. This short video essay explores what that idea is and tells you about the man who figured it all out.

Computers are everywhere and control almost every aspect of our lives. In the next 6 minutes you’ll find out how they really work.

Dexter – Main Title

My previous post, “Masters of Sex,” feels a lot like this. Inspired by, to be sure. Copied? Perhaps. It could be the reason Showtime likes Masters so much. Notice the almost identical “key and doorknob” shot?
