exposive-danceAICP – 2016 Reel – Dir Cut. from Method Design on Vimeo.

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.

Concept, Design & Direction: Method Design
Production: Method Studios NY
Client: RSA/AICP

Watched the video before I read they only learned this in two days.  Double wow.  Fantastic video starting from the kids smiles, and going all the way (watch the whole thing) to the end their awesome enthusiastic, energetic performance.

Graduating seniors of Kahuku High School’s class of 2015 surprised family and friends with an impressive music and dance performance they learned in only two days. The event, captured by MoStreetProductions,  has been seen by more than 2.5 million YouTube viewers at this writing.Kahuku High School is located on Oahu’s North Shore and serves a very diverse community. The end of the seniors’ performance includes their own haka, “Kaipahua Kura” — which has its origins in New Zealand’s Maori culture.

These bookends are made from walnut and birch. The design idea was to abstract a half open book. The form is an “L” representing the binding and a quarter of a segmented wood turned piece representing the pages in the “L.” The piece is solid to make it as heavy as possible to help hold back the books.

Making a Case for Books

This is the fully animated story of making four bookcases. The four cases are made from two pieces of walnut veneer plywood with almost no waste. The base for the cases is made from solid walnut with mitered corners The bookcases are 33 inches tall and 47 inches wide. The finish is wipe on polyurethane. They fit under and within the spacing of the windows in the living room.

Lawn Chair 2

This film is the making of a lawn chair from milling the lumber to finishing the chair. The story is told with no dialogue through stop motion animation. The concept for the chair is a striped beach towel hanging over a chair. The film opens with this symbolism and then proceeds to tell the story of the wood being cut, planed, shaped and assembled into the lawn chair.

Lawrence Lessig,

We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim (corruption in our politics)

There is a corruption at the heart of American politics, caused by the dependence of Congressional candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. That’s the argument at the core of this blistering talk by legal scholar Lawrence Lessig. With rapid-fire visuals, he shows how the funding process weakens the Republic in the most fundamental way, and issues a rallying bipartisan cry that will resonate with many in the U.S. and beyond.
