What’s inside?

In a new short film, animator Rok Predin takes a peek inside a selection of seemingly innocent-looking things

In a new short film, animator Rok Predin takes a peek inside a selection of seemingly innocent-looking things…

The sequences that make up Predin’s 1.15 minute film may look like they belong in a children’s book – apples with worms inside them; pumpkins with candles lighting up their insides – but some of them are a little more disturbing than others. Created using Cinema 4D and composited in After Effects, Inside was produced by Richard Barnett at Trunk Animation.

The film, which Rok says “lets the viewer ponder the traditional relationship between internal and external space” makes use of a great colour palette and Ivan Arnold’s soundtrack only adds to the strangeness. Predin’s Vimeo page is here.

Isn’t there a better way to buy design?

Growing numbers of designers are refusing to pitch for work. Not just unpaid pitches, any pitch at all. Pitching, they say, is bad for designers, bad for clients and produces bad work. They have a point
