Site for Japanese filmmaker Tao Tajima. Love the home screen with all the thumbnails which react nicely to your interactions – love the fluid like transitions to the project pages. Try scrolling this this view and you traverse the projects in a liquid like fashion. Nice design, nicely executed.
Site of film maker Jony Guedj based in Paris. Slick and polished site, that brings the content to life through motion. Love the side scrolling homepage, with subtle content masking that adds extra dimensionality, nice transitions from thumb to content. Great, modern folio site.
Site of UK based motion design studio Ultra Studio. Minimal approach, rollover the labels to get a thumb behind the type. Tap on the project – lovely transition to play the video – simple stripped back interface that lets the content shine. Love the colour transition and the subtle and slick animations.

Nice dive into some of the Polish arts, lovingly titled ‘A foreigners guide to’. Several interactive guides take you through the history of Polish cinema, photography and electronic music. Using a mixture of bold type, vibrant hints of colour and b&w photography to bring stories to life. There is a lot of polish and detail throughout, many transitions and animations to bring the content alive – love the mix of interactive moments such as timelines and so on – you can tell it has been a real labour of love.
Teaser site for new film Albedo Absolute. Love the 3D scrolling which morphs the background of the site and provides a unique perspective as you scroll down. With a relatively small amount of content they have created something quite compelling with lovely sound design too.
Site promoting the launch of the new Jungle Book film. Featuring lovely bold type, background video and – deeper in the site – beautifully created 3D illustrated scenes. Love the transitions and lots of attention to detail, beautifully crafted and nicely executed when you consider it is essentially a really well skinned Tumblr blog.
Site of Paris based production agency who specialise in music and commercial videos. Elegant and minimal interface, love the sliding menu to the left slips underneath the video nicely. Smooth transitions and nice clean design that lets the content do the talking.
Lovely site for creative production agency Onirim. Lovely scrolling and masking transitions from section to section with bold typography and inline video. Beautifully designed, with nice attention to detail and lots of cool transitions and animations – love the directors/photographers page with colour hits on rollover which injects personality into a monotone design. Great example of a modern, slick, and beautiful agency site.
Site promoting the new film Our Brand is Crisis. Beautifully designed, with a cool navigation mechanic – sliding panels bring in more info when needed. Love the full screen video and bold type driven layout. Cool integration of a Tumblr blog too – fun and great looking site.
Site of Toronto based creative agency Kid. Studio. Fun homepage with nicely treated visuals that rotate around in 3D space linking to the relevant project with nicely implemented parallax effect on scroll. Minimal layout and monotone styling with nice details, like the Ken preloader, finish this agencies folio.
Site of Japanese animator Ryoji Yamada. Love how the site starts, with flickering animations that spool up and represent the old zoetrope, eventually giving a vertically scrolling montage of the films. Click on a film and you see it in-situ. Love how the execution really reflects the medium.
Elegant site for Julien Belmonte, film director and designer. Featuring a simple and intuitive video scrubbing integration, which is simply your mouse cursor position. The homepage is just one long strip of videos, tap on one video and it expands. Nice transitions and smooth animation, with a really simple and elegant mechanic which lets the content do the talking.
