Something Left, Something Taken

Hey there! Pardon the little break. I thought I could start the week with this “animated dark comedy about a vacationing couple’s encounter with a man they believe to be the Zodiac Killer.” I guess that happens at least once to everyone of us.

Something Left, Something Taken is an awesome and crafty animated short film created by Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata AKA Tiny Inventions. Be warned: every time you’ll blink your eyes, you lose something cool.

Kanal 5: Nature Ident

In response to an extremely open brief from Swedish broadcaster Kanal 5, Man vs Machine worked in collaboration with the fine folk at Proud Creative to conceive and create a visually rich and quirky spot, suited to the eclectic entertainment output of the channel. The brief was simply to create an ident that referenced nature in some way. They took inspiration from geography text book style illustrations to develop a surreal 3D world based around the logo, threw in a few oversize animals… and bingo.
