Our August issue – a CGI special – is out next week. Subscribers get their copies first and it costs less than if you buy it in the shops. A bargain. Make sure you receive CR first each month by subscribing here…

And if you subscribe by Monday July 22, you’ll received the August edition of CR as your first issue.

So what’s in it this month, we hear you cry?

Well, in this issue we turn the spotlight on CGI and talk ‘teamwork’ with several of the industry’s leading practitioners such as Smoke & Mirrors, Taylor James and Stanley’s Post. We also have interviews with photographer Giles Revell and 3D artist, Ben Koppel.

Carl Burgess (More Soon) argues that, aside from generating beautiful work, digital image-making is a vital antidote to our current obsession with handmade nostalgia; and Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones talk us through the film they made for the Meltdown festival, which worked VFX house Glassworks to the limit.

There are also features on the new Disobedient Objects show at the V&A, which features art and design made by protest groups; while the Royal College of Art‘s critical writing in art and design programme introduce their new book charting the history of the college’s student publication, Ark. Plus we review the British Folk Art exhibition at Tate Britain and the Digital Revolution show at the Barbican.

Here’s the cover (below), based on a concept by Carl Burgess and features artwork by Komba3D (which is available from TurboSquid.com).

If you’re not yet a CR subscriber – why not take one out today? Order by Monday and the August issue will be the first issue delivered to you. Visit our Shopify page, here.

The Consumer Is In Charge. Of What?

In a world in which a handful of companies largely control what we see, hear, and buy, how can anyone claim that the consumer is the one in charge? This, says Bob Hoffman – aka The Ad Contrarian – is “one of the inescapable clichés of modern marketing” which “shows a remarkable and frightening lack of understanding about what’s really going on”…
