JAGUAR F TYPE R - A New Dawn
We worked very closely with Gevorg on the planet-sized sound of the new Jaguar F TYPE R film. There are many beautiful reverbs and subtle effects / sound design that build and sculpt the auditory journey.
Zero of the sounds used in the piece are from sync recordings.
"There is something lurking in the shadows of the night. Something stronger than us. A new creature. It’s the only thing awake at this hour and we will hear its sound. This is a simple story of someone going for a drive at night, all night, to catch the sunrise and beat his time. The Jaguar F-Type R is coming."

Matt Damon, a lifelong friend of Howard Zinn and his family, read excerpts from a speech Howard Zinn gave in 1970 as part of a debate on civil disobedience.
This performance was part of “The People Speak, Live!” with Matt Damon and Lupe Fiasco at the Metro in Chicago, on January 31, 2012, produced by Voices of a People’s History (peopleshistory.us) in collaboration with Louder Than a Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Festival.

Here’s what Howard Zinn writes about this speech in his introduction to the full piece in his book Voices of a People’s History of the United States, written with Anthony Arnove and first published in 2004 by Seven Stories Press:
"In November 1970, after my arrest along with others who had engaged in a Boston protest at an army base to block soldiers from being sent to Vietnam, I flew to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to take part in a debate with the philosopher Charles Frankel on civil disobedience. I was supposed to appear in court that day in connection with the charges resulting from the army base protest. I had a choice: show up in court and miss this opportunity to explain — and practice — my commitment to civil disobedience, or face the consequences of defying the court order by going to Baltimore. I chose to go. The next day, when I returned to Boston, I went to teach my morning class at Boston University. Two detectives were waiting outside the classroom and hauled me off to court, where I was sentenced to a few days in jail. Here is the text of my speech that night at Johns Hopkins."
The brand new Nike Sneakerboots collection elevates classic Nike sneakers for cool-weather performance. Added height, traction, and weatherproofing evolve icons for lightweight functionality and rugged resistance. The design of the shoes is inspired by metropolitan cities like New York, Tokyo and London.
For the global campaign we’ve been asked to create the music and sound for a film, which both introduces the collection as well as challenges Sneakerboots owners to get laced up and share on Instragram how they take their Nikes to the next level.
I was very honored to be picked among few other great artists/studios, to produce Ident animation for the Pause Fest 2014. The theme for 2014 festival is “Connected” and after couple of weeks of brainstorming, going trough and scratching few different ideas, I came up with this one. I tried to introduce the festival as the creature, flying around, connecting, gathering and bringing together everything that happens at the festival annually.
Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks to George and Caspian for the opportunity to be involved with the festival and great guys from Zelig Sound for bringing animation to life.

In the Summer of 2013 Suns approached me with the idea of developing a music video for their track ‘Bells’ and upon listening to the track -which I loved- I immediately had thoughts of an astronaut travelling alone through space. With this initial image in mind I began experimenting with various visual effects using After Effects.
I used two AE plugins: Plexus 2.0 and Trapcode Form, I started to develop my ideas which involved generating the thin line aesthetic and dots that I was after. The majority of the 3D models used in the video are based on real objects from Space; the Hubble Space Telescope, Progress and Voyager 1. The planets and moons in the video are generated using NASA imagery, and helped to create a formal aspect to an otherwise abstract piece. Once I’d settled on the visual look for the piece, I began to think about how the structure will be developed in relation to the journey of the astronaut and the emotion of the track.
It was a pleasure to work with Suns on this project.

An extended preview of a film constructed from 150,000 photographs that combines time lapse footage of riots, optical illusion paintings and stars. Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing. In the same way that you, life itself and even the laws of the universe are deeply paradoxical, so too are the realities pieced together to form this non-reality.
Every event depicted in Modern Ruin happened in naked reality, from the riots, to the optical-illusion paintings.
All of my films are accompanied by still portfolios and outtakes culled from thousands of photographs shot for the film. They are designed not just to reflect the artwork in the film, but to add another dimension to it. They can be found on my website: jeff-frost.com
Riots – I would like to be clear that the riots in this film, which began right outside my front door, were set in motion when the Anaheim police department shot and killed an unarmed man last summer. When the residents of my neighborhood began protesting they showed up and shot into the crowd with rubber bullets, threw tear gas and released a K9 unit, which mauled one man’s arm. They would later say that releasing the dog was accidental. There’s quite a bit more to the story obviously, but I want to make sure that it’s well understood that the footage in this film is not meant to be consumed as a factual news item. It’s definitely taken out of the context of reality and used in another. It’s making art out of news.
