Gotham Motion Comic

1 02 2016

Motion comics have often been used as part of transmedia campaigns. Titles such as Dexter, Mad Max, and even videogames such as Command and Conquer, have all utilised motion comics as part of their promotional material. As viewers wait for the next series of Gotham to air (February 29th), viewers can get a preview of things to come with a series of short motion comics. The first episode ‘Penguin gets a chilly welcome’ can be viewed on the IGN website.

From the IGN website:

While Gotham is taking a midseason break, that doesn’t mean there aren’t new stories to tell before the show returns on February 29th. FOX, Warner Bros. TV and DC Entertainment have partnered for an original tale, told as a five-part motion comic, called Gotham Stories, which bridges the first and second halves of the season.

New Manga Generator using Kinect 3D

8 08 2013

I’ve been busy preparing for my new job as a lecturer in Digital Media in Canterbury Christ Church university, but I couldn’t resist posting a link to this remarkable concept.

Combining preset manga backdrops, objects, and speed lines, a ‘player’ can pose in front of the Kinect 3D camera, which then translates his movements into a live motion manga comic. The generator also recognises specific player poses to reveal dynamic speed lines and atmospheric backdrops.

Ewig Mein / Forever Mine – Prolog Episode 0/7

13 06 2013

‘Forever Mine’, is a dark and thrilling series of motion comics starring the protagonist Linda Kaminski. The project merges social web 2.0 marketing with motion comic storytelling, but the most impressive aspect of the series must be the wonderfully illustrated sequences that depict the characters and settings. The artwork has a rich expressionistic aesthetic that compliments the dark undertones of the narrative. The German-based series has English captions in the Youtube videos, which can be accessed on the lower UI of the video panel.
