Logorama by H5 from Grafik Magazine on Vimeo.

Four years in the making, H5′s animation feature (as seen above) looks intriguing. The film originally debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, earning the Best Short Film honor in the Cannes Critics’ Week Competition.

Logorama is 17 minutes of Hollywood blockbuster action, rife with car chases, natural disasters, and hostage-taking, but created entirely out of real world logotypes and brand characters. In it, you’ll see the Michelin Man, the Haribo kid, Bob’s Big Boy, Mr. Pringle and Ronald McDonald, but in some very unfamiliar roles playing the classic movie archetypes of good guys, bad guys and foils.

Anyone know where it’s screening?

Graphic Designer/Client Relationship

This hilarious scenerio between a graphic designer and his client is all too familiar. Ironically this video was made using xtranormal, a ‘text-to-movie’ service that turns users’ scripts into mini-films using its predesigned characters and backgrounds.
