Freeware game Throw Up When oldschool meets newschool

Freeware game Throw UpTo cut the question short, in case you were wondering if Throw Up is related to stomach ache, puke and stuff. NO.

Throw Up is a puzzle / arcade game loosely inspired by Quarth released in 1989 by video game veteran Konami, where you need to shoot on shapes to create rectangles.

The gameplay may sound very easy at first but you will discover that the progression is quite difficult indeed, and you will play over again to beat your best score (and challenge your friends via Facebook and Twitter).

the chromatic design by moviebarcode

When you discover the moviebarcode website, at first you may wonder what those lines are about.

The main concept is to compress each frame of an entire film in one pixel wide and accumulate them side by side into a single picture.

As a result, we get the whole colour palette (all the dominant colours of each shot actually) compressed in a bar code.

Sometimes you can even spot on the very right of the picture the end credits sequence, dark background with white pixels.

Although the idea is nothing new, if you are nuts about colours, this is a real feast.

More than 130 movies have been processed and prints are also available here.

nouveau magazine de presse cinéma Cinemateaser

Couverture du 1er numero du magazine de cinema CinemateaserSortie début février, la presse cinéma compte désormais un nouveau magazine mensuel, Cinemateaser, disponible en kiosque ainsi qu’en version dématérialisée.

Au sommaire de ce premier numéro, un contenu d’une centaine de pages relativement ciblé ‘productions américaines’ avec une large place au visuel, à noter la quasi-absence de pub.

A titre de comparaison subjective et complètement gratuite, le mensuel lorgne plus du coté du magazine anglais Empire que du dinosaure Premiere qui n’est plus que l’ombre de lui-même.

partly cloudy with Wordle

Created by Jonathan Feinberg, Wordle is a web application running on Google’s infrastructure that generates word clouds from text you provide.

Very easy to use, you can play tweak almost everything from the fonts, the layout to the colours in order to design your own colourful word collages.

You can’t directly save a picture, so stretch the window to get the most of your resolution screen then you just have to grab a screenshot et voilà!

Those visualizations have been generated using the rss feed of this very blog + quick retouching (texture & light).

when Yan Harris met Saul Bass

Flyer 1 - Yan HarrisThe first flyer was originally an excuse for testing a couple of custom brushes done by Chad Essley especially for TVPaint Animation.

Starting from the shape of Yan Harris which stands for the ‘i’ in the original logo, everything was done with an excess of splats, splashes, dots, drops & spray and then, tweaking the colours via blending modes.
