thinkRED media

At thinkRED we go a long way to find interesting and artistic projects to keep ourselves at the edge of technology and the arts. Sometimes in this search, we come across other companies, groups and individuals who have achieved outstanding results in their own work or creative medium, and we just have to let everyone else know about it. We regularly publish articles in top international magazines and journals and occasionally are asked to present sessions at corporate seminars and conferences. Please feel free to browse our article listings. If you would like further details on any of these topic areas please give us a call.

HGK Lucerne HGK Lucerne (Switzerland): Playing with “truth” in the image

Gerd Gockell, accoladed for his work in abstract animation, diverted the discussion to a fascinating insight into, arguably, the only new film genre of the last 40 years, fake documentaries.

We have a creative soul and collectively pull together to dream and create in an animated frenzy of film each year

What's Up With Abstract Animation?

A few weeks ago a colleague and I were invited to present a program of Australian animation to an audience of non-english speaking animation lecturers. The selection of the program was a challenge not because of the language problems in the presentation itself, we had a translator, but in the choice of films to screen. It suddenly dawned on us just how much Australian animation relies on dialogue for its delivery, which raised some very interesting questions. If animation is the universal language of visual ideas then why do so many animators lean towards narrative and dialogue driven delivery styles - and just what’s up with abstract animation anyway?
