We are proud to finally launch the Goldfish All Night video out into the wild world web… it was a gruelling month or two of learning 3D the hard way on a groaning PC working day and night to render out the 7 layers that were comped in After Effects and mixed with motion graphics and live footage to create the end product. It has been shown on MK89, MTV Base, E-TV and SABC 3 and the track “All Night” has done really well on local radio stations and abroad.

If you like the video please give it a rating or comment at youtube and help it to be seen by more ppl.

There was a chilled interview with the band about the new video and album over at The Armchair and a cool post about the video over at inside peak performances

To find out more about Goldfish view the site we built for them at goldfishlive.com or there is always their myspace. If you are in South Africa it is also possible to buy the video for your mobile phone over at 35050

Annecy and Africa Animated

Back in Cape Town after 8 weeks of animation bliss… inspired and refreshed. We have just attended the Annecy Animation Festival in France, where we were doing some serious showreel dealing and just soaking up the cool vibe, big screens, paper jets, great training conferences and incredible variety of animation in competition. Definitely a place to go back to… pictures to be posted soon.

We have spent the past 5 weeks in Durban working with 15 very creative and talented people from around Africa in UNESCO’s Africa Animated! 2 Workshop. The animations we produced are having sound added in Kenya now and iaminawe is creating a website to showcase the finished pieces, so look for that. I worked with the talented Zimbabwean Carl Ncube to produce a stop motion animation called “Dear Mama” which is posted below.

“Take a symphony orchestra and some traditional African instruments, add full, sweet voices of diverse registers and put them in a spectacular setting with a varied programme spanning classical opera, jazz and township music, and you have Cape Town Aqua Opera. ” - Tonight

“The weather was perfect, harbour lights shimmered on the water - and many members of the audience insisted on dancing to the finale. Cape Town has a new `signature event`” - The Voice of the Nation

Iaminawe were commissioned to create animation for the recent “Aqua Opera” production which was held on a floating stage in Cape Towns V&A
Waterfront.

The brief was to a tight 2 week deadline and imagery was required to compliment the 15 varying styles of opera music ranging from “Ancient Africa” opera fusion to traditional Italian Opera through to Contempory African styles of music.

We worked closely with the shows designer Michael Mitchell to develop storyboards that captured the mood of each song and complimented Director Angelo Gobbato’s vision.

The show was filmed by and aired on SABC 3 and received great reviews and feedback.

The Cast: Members of Cape Town Opera, Jazzart Dance Theatre and Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, with Sibongile Khumalo and Neo Muyanga.

This project presented its fair share of technical issues as we were working with a new product called a Maxedia Media Server. It was great to explore this new technology which is loop based and controlled by the lighting desk but it was unfortunately still in a bit of a buggy beta version when we used it. Great potential though.

The 5m X 7m screen was an “opti-screen” which doesnt require a projector and is very scaleable as it is built in strips. It is self illuminating and is used for electronic billboards that need to be seen in the day. It was very bright.

Last night was a sad night as the last episode of The Most Amazing Show aired on SABC2. Iaminawe created a series of animated spots and transitions for the show and were stoked to be working with talented animator Mike Scott whose twisted humour and chewed through t-shirts added an awesome dimension to the show.

Big ups to Corne and Twakkie and their unique style making South Africa laugh at itself… check out a refreshed www.tmas.co.za site as it has just had a whole bunch of cool stuff added to it including a new shop, galleries, chat and ticket booking system. Also look out for the new shirts and posters  and  press packs designed by iaminawe… fun.
