Imaginary Forces - Demo Reel

Siggraph 2013 Rewind: Imaginary Forces from Cineversity on Vimeo.

Imaginary Forces is a VFX motion graphics house responsible for creating the opening title sequence of Pacific Rim. They work exclusively in C4D and in this movie, not only do they feature a slick opening reel, but go into the creation of their project in C4D. Enjoy. You can visit their site here >>

Grayscale Gorilla

We fell in love with Greyscale Gorilla initially for their C4D After Effects integration tutorials. The blog is quite robust, check out their blogpost about how they did the CGI opening title sequence in Pacific Rim.

"Beyond" by Raphael Rogers CG VFX Short

I'm a big fan of the storytelling and overall presentation of Raphael's piece. See how many VFX shots you can spot. You can do many of these shots, but his refinement and attention to overall detail makes them superb. Also, pay attention to their duration and its use in the context of the film. This is just as important as the actual CG effect.
