AliasPosted: March 17, 2006
<a href=”http://www.1st-ave-machine.com/video/1stavepro.mov”No, this isn’t a post about the ABC series Alias but about a three minute film made by 1st Avenue Machine. The company was started by a couple twenty somethings who quit their jobs, turned down offers to work for Industrial Light & Magic and started a boutique computer-animiation company.
They created a promotional film titled Alias (requires Quicktime) to show off their ability. It’s a version of the future where robots and humans living together in Manhattan. The robots looked so realistic that NBC called them up trying to track one of them down. Apparently this has been out for some time but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. Impressive.
