Vince McKelvie's new Instagram video series includes extra-dimensional CGI creatures that are downloadable through a public Dropbox.
Vince McKelvie is quite familiar with taking existing visuals and subverting their uses—and meanings—to create awesome, medium-defying art, as evinced by his recent GIF-warping app Klear. Recently, the Los Angeles-based artist has taken to Instagram to showcase a series of reality-bending videos that insert computer-generated 3D geometries into live, real-world footage. The results? Mind-melting meditations on what it might look like if extra-dimensional CGI creatures broke through the computer screen and began popping up on city streets.
Ever the altrustic artisté, McKelvie has open-sourced his new project, posting the After Effects project, Blender files, custom scripts, and workflow onto a public Dropbox, so any aspiring 3D artist can be producing McKelvie-caliber creations in the time it takes to, well, learn After Effects, Blender, and this video. Easy enough, right?
