2016 AICP Sponsor Reel


Method Design was tapped by production company RSA to concept and create this year’s AICP Sponsor Reel. The AICP awards celebrate global creativity within commercial production. Method Design wanted to create an entertaining piece of design that encapsulates the innovative and prolific nature of this industry. Our aim was to showcase the AICP sponsors as various dancing avatars, which playfully reference the visual effects used throughout production. Motion capture, procedural animation and dynamic simulations combine to create a milieu of iconic pop dance moves that become an explosion of colorful fur, feathers, particles and more.

Onni Toivonen – Clubbed to Death

YouTube Preview Image

Onni Toivonen threw out great footage of his live act today. It is a highly recommended watch. His dedication to the art of juggling is deep and full. He has a fluid manipulation style paired with highly skilled toss juggling of up to 7 clubs.

And yet, his Clubbed to Death video featured above is a little shorter and grittier. It features his clean manipulation style with funky edits and it is just so gosh darn cool!

You can contact Toivonen here

 

Monsieur Bleublanche

Benoit Vivian  from Cie Voila l’Enchantement has been working out of Belgium since 1998 as a dancer, a juggler, a clown with a huge list of theatrical accomplishments under his belt. This video is a one off improvisation he edited, just as a test of the Go Pro camera. He calls this character “un peu barée” which translates to a little bit silly. 

 

Fuman Musicoloco

Fuman Musicoloco went viral on facebook earlier this month with his impressive street performance act. He is from Spain, and hand created his drum kit specifically for this piece. Although juggle drumming is not uncommon, this man’s work is original and creative, both in the street arts and in the juggling world.
