This is my final project from Vancouver Film School’s 3D animation program. With Malaise I wanted to do a project that was both visually exciting and a demonstration of my abilities as an animator. The look of the piece was influenced by an array of old sci-fi classics ranging from Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris to Jean-Claude Forest’s Barbarella. For the feel and tone of the film it was to Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise that I drew inspiration from. I wanted to pursue a slightly more realistic route for the animation so I researched live action movie footage, live reference as well as more recent CG efforts from America and Japan to help achieve to type of movement I desired. This project was a labor of love and I thank everyone who helped bring it to the screen. Enjoy the show!

Our new feature of the day: you can now very easily embed photographs from Getty Images into a comment or an LGF Page, simply by copying and pasting Getty’s embed code into the editing area.
As we mentioned a couple of days ago, Getty Images now allows us to embed millions of the photographs in their vast library. This new LGF feature lets you post any Getty Image photo that has an embed code (lots of the pictures have the code, but some don’t).
If a photo can be embedded, you’ll see this when you hover your mouse over it:
Just click that embed button, copy the iframe code you see, and paste it into an LGF comment or Page; that’s all there is to it. Our back-end code handles scaling the image to fit, so it doesn’t get cut off if it’s too large.
Note: On some pages at Getty’s website, there’s no hover effect — you need to click the photo’s thumbnail image to open a popup window. Also, with some images, you won’t see the embed button in the hover dialog — but it does appear if you click the thumbnail. They still haven’t standardized this throughout the site, obviously.
This is an absolutely phenomenal resource for adding images and making your posts more interesting and colorful; Getty has breaking news photos from the best photographers in the world, and millions of archival photos for every kind of use.
(And I believe LGF is the first site to enable users to easily embed this enormous library of images.)
