We were deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Tony Scott. He will be truly missed. As a tribute to his memory we would like to share one of Garson's very first title sequences created for Scott's 1996 film, "The Fan". Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Scott's family.
Life has a beginning and an ending.
But in our lifetime,
there exists a continuum,
a time full of curiosity and constant surprise,
observation and discovery.
When I look at Degas’ sculptures,
I am always fascinated by how I am able to see something new each time.
My perception changes at each angle and as I walk around the sculpture,
the figures give new meaning.
Figures in motion.
De Kooning defined painting as drawing,
and from his and Degas’ work,
I became curious as to how sculpture could be defined as drawing
and play with our perceptions of sculpture.
This morning Robert Appleton, a friend from AGI, sent me a message on Facebook "Hey ...we need to talk about visual music ;)" which reminded me to put this QT up for all my colleagues who are interested in John Whitney's work. He was an exceptional motion graphics artist in the 60's who did work for Saul Bass's Vertigo title sequence.
A few years ago, I was accepted to be a member of AGI. I was asked by Wang Xu, a designer friend of mine, to create a personal piece of motion graphic for the AGI student conference 2005 in Tokyo. I had my long time collaborators Etsuko and Ed working with me on this piece.
