Artist Sougwen Chung's piece "Chiaroscuro" is a beautiful display of projection mapping that takes the artform to a new level. Says The Creators Project, "Like most projection work we've seen, Chiaroscuro is an optical illusion inducing interplay between light and shadow, alternating between illuminating and masking forms to reveal various elements in the piece and lend a sense of dynamism and motion to stationary structures. In this work, Chung's delicate and intricate line work is also accented by LED light coils embedded under paper appliques that give the wall mural a three dimensional quality and extend the visuals beyond the flat plane, a technique that melds perfectly with the optical effects of light projection."

Menno Fokma and Floris Vos' dreamy music video for Laura Jansen's "Golden" was based on Fokma's CGI showreel. Explains Fokma, "But these shots were just 3 seconds and the 'Golden' track was 3.30 min. So we’re pitching on a treatment with these shots in mind. We thought about the transformation the artist made in comparison with her first album. From a lovely small girl safely behind the piano to a grown up expressive woman. Feeling one with her personality and expressing this to the world around her. We wanted to use a lot of flora and fauna reference while we wanted to show her growth in an organic and abstract way." Read more here on Stash Magazine and see the music video below.

New York's PBS station WNET has mounted a tongue-in-cheek ad campaign involving posters and Twitter feeds touting fake (and ridiculous) reality shows like Knitting Wars and Married to a Mime. The tagline is: "The fact you thought this was a real show says a lot about the state of TV. Support quality programming. Join us at thirteen.org.” Says Victoria Davies, managing director at agency CHI & Partners, to The New York Times, "We wanted to do something outside the channel, something people would enjoy, rather than something aggressive.” Read the full story here.

The Mill+ was brought on board to create a stunningly realistic CGI chimpanzee for PETA's "98% Human" spot, which actually touts using CGI animals over real ones in movies. Explains BBDO Creative Director Toygar Bazarkaya, "In working with Mill+, we noticed there IS another way. We found a way to change the message from 'stop using great apes' to 'stop using "real" great apes.' Mill+ developed a technology that allows for the creation of a great ape that is so real, it's scary. No use of the real animal, but an undistinguishable result. Planet of the Apes looks like a cartoon in comparison. Absolutely mind blowing!" Read more here on The Mill's blog.

Robisrob takes on directing, editing and VFX duties for OMD's stylistic music video for "Dresden." He says of the video, inspired by the opening sequences of James Bond movies, "The rotoscoped style seemed to fit the illustrated look of OMD’s visual output and the slow-motion movements and fighting narrative were a perfect fit for the aggravation I could hear in Andy’s voice."
