Aeon7 - Online browser game

Image

Od Januara 2014 godine sam počeo da radim na igri Aeon 7. Priključio sam se razvojnem timu Yellow Quince-a iz Novog Sada i moji zadaci uključuju više stvari kao što su pisanje pozadinske priče sveta, scenarija za misije, UI&UX design i animacije. Ekipa je mala ali veoma talentovana i predana ideji i konceptu igre. Jako mi je drago što sam u mogućnosti da doprinesem ovoj igri koja će nesumnjivo podići lestvicu za ovakve igre na novi nivo. Igra koristi sve moguće nove web tehnologije, tako da i sa tehničke strane će biti van konkurencije. 

Samo da navedem neka od imena koja su uključena u razvoj igre:
Vladimir Avramov - lead developer i začetnik ideje
Miloš Martinov - lead game designer
Živko Kondić - lead artist

Ovde imate nekoliko linkova na kojem možete da pratite razvoj igre.

The evolution of the ETC brand

The European Team Championship (ETC) is rapidly becoming one of the worlds premiere tabletop gaming event held annually. Players gather from around the world to play competitive war-games in host countries every year, to be in the competition or just to get away from home and have fun. The organization of the event has become a big task and it has to cover a lot of ground for it to work and be succesful. Usually the big things like the choice of venue, accommodation and managing meals overshadows the smaller things that make the event more streamlined and efficient.

Exit 2013 festival opening animation

 

Ovaj video je radjen za ceremonijalno otvaranje Exit 2013 festivala koji je bio posvecen Nikoli Tesli. Rad je zavrsen u veoma kratkom vremenskom roku ali svi koji su bili ukljuceni u rad su bili veoma profesionalni.

This is a video that was part of the EXIT 2013 opening ceremony that was dedicated to NIkola Tesla. The work was done in a very tight deadline but everyone involved was very professional.

RTV Vojvodine Android app

 

Ovo je prvi video koji sam radio sa Element 3D plug-inom za After Effects i moram da priznam da je bilo jako zabavno. Lako se koristi, jednostavan je i idealan je za neke osnovne ili stilizovane 3D animacije. Steta sto Adobe odbija da unapredi After Effects. Bio bi to najrevolucionarniji potez ikada u motion design-u.

This video was my first Experiment with Element 3D plug-in for After Effects. I have to admit that it was very fun to use. It's simple, easy to use and it's ideal for some basic or stylized 3D work. It's a shame Adobe refuses to rewrite After Effects for hardware optimization, it would be an awsome and revolutionary software for motion design.

Udarna Vest , multimedijalna izložba u Noći muzeja 2013

U noći 18. maja je RTV je učestvovao sa svojom interaktivnom postavkom na manifestaciji "Noć Muzeja". RTV je učestvovao po drugi put na ovoj manifestaciji i ove godine je tema bila informativni program kroz istoriju pod nazivom "Udarna Vest". Izložba je pokrivala period od 1960. do 2012. godine i jednako je zastupljen bio informativni program radija i televizije. Cela postavka je izvedena u donjem holu "Studija M" u Novom Sadu.

 

Sa ulične strane gledaoci su mogli da vide osvetljenu zgradu Studija M sa vanjske i unutrašnje strane. Na prozoru iznad ulaza se videla projekcija koja je promovisala događaj a propratna muzika i audio isečci iz postavke su se čuli i na ulici. Takva postavka je značajno doprinelo poseti.

Izložba se sastojala od postavke koja je koncipirana kao vremenska linija dešavanja i informisanja javnosti Vojvodine kroz rad informativnog programa RTVa. Na panoima su bili postavljeni tekstovi i slike koje su obeležile period kojom je pano bio posvećen.

Pored njih su bili postavljene i zasebne table na kojima su posetioci mogli da zapišu šta je za njih bio udarna vest. Table su privukle veliku pažnju i posetioci su napunili sve table sa raznim porukama, crtežima i informacijama o tome šta je za njih bilo bitno.

Postavku su pratili i audio-video sadržaj koji je ilustrovao sadržaj sa pano-a. Audio deo je sadržao priloge iz arhive koje su obeležile period koju je izložba pokrivala. Posetioci su mogli da slušaju ovu postavku kroz nekoliko slušalica. Video koje pratio postavku se emitovala na 14 televizora koji su bili postavljeni neposredno kod ulaza na u Studio M. Gledaoci su mogle da prate 45 video priloga koji su prikazivali istorijske trenutke iz okoline.

Za posetioce je najintersantniji delovi bili improvizovani radio i tv studio gde su mogli da se oprobaju u čitanju nekoliko vesti iz istorijske postavke. Radijski studio je postavljen u delu gornjeg hola gde je relativna tišina omogućila da se oprobaju ljudi u čitanju vesti. Po snimanju bi se zvuk pročistio i prosledio kod kolega koji su predstavljali Web redakciju RTVa. Ova redakcija je sedela zajedno samnom u uglu hola Studija M gde je bio potavljen improvizovani tv studio. Ovde su posetioci mogli da sednu za "dnevnički sto" i da pročitaju najavu za TV prilog. Koncept je bio udarna vest i učesnik je čitao vest kao da se upravo desila. Ideja je bila da se to sve snimi, izmontira na licu mesta zajedno sa najavnom, odjavnom špicom i propratnim prilogom i prosledi kod kolega iz Web redakcije. Kolege su obradili vest i odmah postavili na zaseban deo web sajta  RTVa posvećen manifestaciji. Jako puno ljudi se pojavilo koji su bili zainteresovani za ovaj vid interakcije i tokom noći smo uspeli da snimimo oko 100 ljudi (tu računam i audio deo). Većina posetilaca je već te noći mogla da pogleda prilog a tokom sledećeg dana sam uspeo da obradim svakog učesnika. Prilozi su postavljeni na YouTube i embedovani u sajt RTVa. Kolege iz Web redakcije su dalje promovisali događaj preko Facebook-a i Twittera tako da su posetioci mogli lako da podele vest sa svojim prijateljima.

Veoma sam srećan što sam bio pozvan da učestvujem i da realizujem improvizovani tv studio. Uz pomoć kolega sa RTVa koji su pokazali izuzetnu predanost projektu koji je izveden na minimalnom budžetu uspeli smo da izvedemo jednu ozbiljnu izložbu koja je imala veoma visok stepen interaktivnosti po rečima organizatora Noći Muzeja.

Deo koncepta i vizuelno oblikovanje je delo Jovane Budošan sa kojom sam ima direktnu saradnju u pripremnoj fazi. Ona je zaslužna za vizuelni identitet manifestacije i izradu osnovnih elemenata. Postavka je realizovana uspomoć odeljenja scene i rasvete televizije. Logistika je kordinisana od strane Studija M. Tehničku podršku je vršio sektor tehnike RTVa. Dizajn svetla je odsek svetla iz televizije. Web redakcija je zadužena bila za online izveštavanje tokom noći. Ja sam izradio sve video elemente, montirao priloge i prosleđivao dalje. Kompletan spisak ljudi ću naknadno okačiti jer mi je zaista drago što su učestvovali i dali svi od sebe.

Cheers

KONTRAST: Pali na ispitu // KONTRAST: Failed the test

KONTRAST: Pali na ispitu (VIDEO)

 

Godinu dana nakon velikog požara u novosadskoj diskoteci Kontrast, u kojoj je životno stradalo šestoro mladih ljudi, još je u toku suđenje. Na optuženičkoj klupi trenutno sedi četvoro ljudi, a roditelji postavljaju pitanje da li su oni jedino odgovorni.

Na godišnjucu od požara, RTV istražuje kako na tu tragediju gledaju svedoci, porodice nastradalih, sud, vatrogasci i predstavnici inspekcija, čiji je zadatak bio da Kontrast kontrolišu.

Design work for the ETC 2013

PLAKAT001_manji_jpg
PLAKAT001_manji_jpg

I have started to work on the design for the upcoming premiere war-gaming event in the world, the "European Team Championship 2013". It will be held in Novi Sad, Serbia this year. The gathering will encompass more than 600 participants from all around the world. The organizers have asked me to do a solution for the logo and the visual identity of the competition. This is a promo poster I finished today. Later on I will make a full on report on the process and the idea behind it.

2013

https://vimeo.com/56851949 Another year on the rise and bubbling with potential. Here is the scoop and my five cents on the last year.

Last year ended with some nice memories and some bad experiences. I had time in the last month to think about  what is that I'm good at and what I want to do. In that time I decided  (as a new years resolution or what ever) that I wont be working on commercial projects any more. I realized that it does not suit me. I rather be doing stuff that is beneficial to the community that surrounds me and not a single person or a company that is trying to make money. I'm a stubborn bastard and people who are in this job for the money and glory (nice it may be) can't work with a prick like me. So that is all I'm going to say about that.

On the other hand I got back to my old house which is the regional TV station RTV Vojvodine. They were kind enough to give me a job as a director on a teenage show dedicated to the online lives of the young and restless. We will se how it will turn out.

There are some interesting things happening around the local gaming world and I have been asked to participate in the design process of this "competition" that will take shape here in Novi Sad later this year. That is going to be awesome and more on that later.

I was also thinking on reincarnating a cartoon character from a few years back. I drew him during my studies at the academy. There is a strong possibility that the psycho will return in a form of a web-comic also later this year.

So this is me saying thank you to all of you, who I met and worked with last year, and I wish you all a very fruitful and exciting year.

Cheers

News

I've been back home for almost three months now. Bahrain was unforgettable, met some very nice people and worked on great projects. Now I moved from my old apartment and moved from my old job. I work at Fullscream now. We worked before on projects and they have a great team already in place to which I'm still getting used to. The colleagues from my previous employment at RTV Vojvodine organized a conference this week called VIZID and it was great to see them again hard at work. The opportunity to play a part in it did not pass me by so I helped out as much as I could in my spare time. The conference was a starting point for a this project, which is meant to be a gathering  of creatives  and designers in public medias from the region. I had the pleasure to meet and have some nice discussions on design problems in public media with Vida Zoltán, the designer (and Art Director) of the new identity of MTVA, the newly reformed Hungarian public media organization. There is a lot more stuff going on and I will keep you updated on my special and pet projects that are in the works. Cheers

In Bahrain

I'm pleased to announce that I started working and living in the Kingdom of Bahrain at a production house called "Talking Pictures". My role is centered around motion graphics design and the team is great. I will keep you all updated with projects and experiences.

Cheers

RTV VOJVODINE NEW IDENTITY / NOVI IDENTITET RTV VOJVODINE

The new visual identity of RTV was implemented on 29. November 2011. The new logo and the idea for the new identity came from the concept of dynamics and motion. The concept of the "actuator" was born together with the logo - a propeller.

Novo rešenje vizuelnog identiteta RTV-a je implementirano 29.novembra 2011. godine. Novi zaštitini znak i ideja celokupnog identiteta proizašla je iz pojma dinamičnosti i pokreta. Razvijen je koncept "pokretača" i kreiran novi zaštitni znak - propeler.

Definicija:

propeler ili elisa je aerodinamički oblikovana površina koja mehanički rad pretvara u vučnu ili potisnu silu. Energija koju generiše propeler može da se akumulira ili da se pokrene: da osvetli, da pređe određeni put ili da podigne na određenu visinu.

This propeller (actuator) contains layers of meaning. It is universal and simple - known to everyone. It is present in our culture and tradition (windmills,watermills), in innovation and sustainability and in the natural powers that can create motion. It has the tendency to change but his primary characteristic is motion but his role is creation. The main form of the logo is made up of six parts in this case, colors. They symbolize the cultural diversity in Voivodina and it is created by intersecting of three ellipsoids. Together they create motion and through motion they are a creative force which in turn drives teamwork "In motion" which is also the new slogan.

Ovaj propeler (pokretač) u sebi sadrži više nivoa značenja. On je dovoljno univerzalan i jednostavan - svima prepoznatljiv. Nalazi se i u tradiciji naše kulture (vetrenjačama i vodenicama), u inovativnim i savremenim težnjama (priči o obnovljivim energijama), u energiji koja pokreće - u prirodi. On ima tendenciju promene, ali njegova primarna karakteristika je kretanje, a uloga stvaranje. U suštini, zaštitni znak je jedna forma koju čine više, u ovom slučaju šest, različitih krakova - šest boja. Simbolizuju jedinstvo različitih kultura u Vojvodini, dobijenih ukrštanjem tri elipsoidne forme. Zajedno one stvaraju pokret i stvaraju kroz pokret, pa tako čine i dobar timski rad "U POKRETU", što je i novi slogan.

Novi-Vizuelni-identitet-RTV-05
Novi-Vizuelni-identitet-RTV-05

The new logo is the basis of the new identity, it's elements also represent  - apart from the symbolic meanings of diversity and fellowship - the media outlets the company has. Radio Novi Sad (three channels), Television Novi Sad (two channels), RTV Internet and "M" production. These distinct medias will also get their image derived from the new visual identity.

Novi znak je osnova ovog vizuelnog identiteta, njegovi elementi sem toga što simbolizuju različitosti i zajedništvo, na nivou ovog medijskog servisa predstavljaju Radio Novi Sad (prvi, drugi i treći program), Televiziju Novi Sad (prvi i drugi program), Internet RTV-a i M produkciju. Ovi segmenti RTV-a će tako i dobiti svoj imidž.

We had wished to create a contemporary and simple visual identity for RTV. On the other hand it had to be functional and flexible to satisfy the needs of the divers needs of this public media service. Our idea is to further develop this concept and make constant changes in the future in the form of visual refreshments.

Želja nam je bila da dizajniramo jedan jednostavan i savremen vizuelni identitet RTV-a. S druge strane težili smo funkcionalnom rešenju koje će biti dovoljno fleskibilno da pokrije mnogobrojne segmente ovog medijskog javnog servisa. Ideja je da se ovaj koncept razvija u dužem vremenskom periodu sa većom dinamikom, tj. češćim promenama i vizuelnim osveženjima.

Atheist Rap - Ne bi bilo fer on MTV adria

I forgot to mention that i worked and made a music video with cinematographer Predrag Radosavljevic for the legendary punk band "Atheist Rap". I grew up in a rural village in the nineties when the band had most of its hits and we listened to them all the time. So after all these years, you can say that this was more an honor to make, then just another job. Pedja is also a punk who grew up around and with the band members and was excited to make the video. I have to say that they are a grea team and one of the only bands in Serbia who can say that they live of and for the music they make. So here is the link for the article on MTV and soon you can catch the music video on their official website too.

Here is the video directly
