Futurist Toys

futurist serene image

A quite dark and disturbing 3d animation from 2005 about a working day of an "anyone" man, living in our era.

The story takes visual inspiration from italian art movement "Futurismo" (Futurism) , and specially from Fortunato Depero Artworks, to play with the positivist concept of "machine" of the beginning of last century, opposed to what machines are becoming now for our lifes.
It was a work made along my thesis in industrial design , in a period while I was worried about my working future..

Santa Snake , Jingle Snake

snork and snake animated

And so this is Christmas , and another year is finishing… That’s why we made a cute and very short animation featuring “Santa Snake” (Or, in Italia, Babbo Serpente).

Firstable cause I admire this elegant and sneaky animal, second, cause in Chinese Horoscope, The Snake is the symbol of 2013.

And also, cause the snake deserved a rehabilitation in Western Culture. Hope you enjoy! And Merry Christmas!! (and happy new year)



An Item from futurist toys I really liked : a locomotive. I found this old picture, featuring a model used in Futurist Toys: "The Locomotive" (intended as the pilot of the train), it seems to me almost more interesting, extrapolated from the video and its natural context. Man and Machine, using the same geometry and geometric strength.

A Beautiful Town – or Extended Country – Bello Paese

A 3d futurist – vanguard Animation made in Blender Here an explanation Bello Paese i how Italy, is called by some foreigners, misspelling just a bit a nice way to call my country ( Bel Paese ). Italian grammar is difficult, and so is getting our society.

The habit of static wealthiness from the eighties and the ninthys is up facing a new global economy , a new global flux of migration. New needs , new challenges. And the society is more static than ever, if not for jobs, becoming more and more “flexible” than everywhere else.

A proposal for a competition, the creation of a “branding” animation for MTV (1min length) The animation will be a sort of animated futuristic framework, which will represent MTV in the typical swirling style and surreal futurista.Si Please refer to the storyboard. There are too many visual elements to be described in a few words. For an example of the style that is then used, it can be useful vision Toys Futurists. As said Fortunato Depero (Futurist painter and copywriter) said, if in the past customers were popes and emperors, in our times are the enterprises and institutions.

Periodo Digital - Depero - an older digital animation

Eduardo Pla

Today I was really feeling curious about other futurism inspired 3d Artist.

This video digital Clip, from Eduardo Pla -  seems one of the earliest attempt to transpose the Fortunato Depero Paintings to a Digital 3d environment , and I must say that for the period (1992) is quite impressive, technically speaking. 

At that time, Pixar was coming out with things like this:
