I did the color correction. The original footage was shot on both a RED and a 5D. Somehow the RED footage had also turned green and the skin tones were all off. I finished the video in Hiero and did the color in Davinci Resolve.

With zero time and no assets each year itaki makes a commercial for the A3C Hip Hop Fest. A3C is run by Andy Harrison; DJ Synthesis, Digital Wolf, and one of the members of Studio Outpost. His shizzy is bad nizzy. This one was created in Cinema 4D and colored and timed in After Effects. I’ve been trying to play with old TV graphics and footage more.

E-Motion Studies is the baby of the first collaboration between Psychopia Pictures and itaki design studio. We shot the whole thing with a Photron super high speed camera. Each shot was taken at 1000 frames per second. We assembled everything in After Effects. The music was done by a band called Twittering Machine. Each musician was shown the video and played alone while watching the video. Mike Wright then blended the audio together into the crazy jazz that backs the movie.



We did all the visual effects including creating helicopters, birds, lightning and compositing everything together. The most interesting shot was the shot where they were in the split city with the curb separating the two different band set ups.
