‘Press +’ by Benjamin Ducroz

The video above by Benjamin Ducroz is a a crazy experiment in mixed media video. It’s called Press + and features 3D animation as well as frames of the animation printed out and treated with watercolor and ink. The combination of these mediums is really what makes this video special. To think that he printed out a bunch of these frames and customized them, that’s some dedication.

The overall effect is really brilliant. Shapes and colors explode in and out of each other. The constant flux and shifting of these elements makes such an amazing effect that you can’t help but get sucked into this video. To get an inside look on his process you should click here.
