Every so often you watch a video that’s so nicely put together, that your jaw literally drops. That was my reaction when I laid eyes on FORMS IN NATURE, a short film by Chromosphere, an LA based design and animation studio.

The illustrations are pixel perfect, the retro music nostalgic, the animation and effects superbly executed – there’s nothing to not like about it. Not a lot happens, but I could watch this over and over. It’s the sort of project a motion designer dreams of getting the opportunity to work on.

 

The Making of FORMS IN NATURE

For those that are interested there’s an in-depth interview with Chromosphere and David Kamp on the making of FORMS IN NATURE on Motionographer, which is deffinitely worth a read – Motionographer interview: “Forms in Nature,” in-depth process with Chromosphere and David Kamp.
