Dreams do come true, guys. Authors was honored to be asked by Upstream Multimedia to design visuals for Ice Cube at Coachella. Twerking butts and audio-reactive creative coding isn't usually on the plate for the day, but dreams. do. come. true.
Created with the EMIT Library for Quartz Composer which was built by one of AUTHORS' very own - Rybotron.

We worked with Adobe in San Francisco to create two launch videos for Photoshop Mix- an app that brings Photoshop editing to mobile devices. Using SF art student Celia Cuento’s inspired collages as a starting point, we tasked her with creating something new for the launch. You can see more of Celia’s work here, and download MIX here.
Luxe, an on demand valet service, is hard to explain. Most people assume it’s either too expensive, doesn’t work, or just flat out isn’t real. We focused on what the experience of using LUXE was like in San Francisco.
The Separation / The Understanding are two tracks from Ceremony’s new album, “The L-Shaped Man” which marks a departure in style from their earlier hard-core work to a post-punk sound.
Four projectors were connected to a Mac Pro using a 5k Resolume output driven by custom real-time Quartz Composer patches built with Rybotron's open-source EMIT Library. The video was almost entirely lit with 4 projectors.

Working closely with filmmakers Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickendon, we created a overall style and execution for the motion graphics in this Kartemquin and PBS produced documentary. It was important to both Dan and Aaron that we felt the touch of Peter Anton's work in the motion graphics, and we executed on that idea quite literally.
For many, Peter Anton’s house embodies an end-of-life nightmare: the utility companies long ago shut off the heat and electricity, the floorboards are rotting, and the detritus of a chaotic life is precariously stacked to the ceiling. But for the filmmakers Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden, Anton’s home is a treasure trove, a startling collection of unseen and fascinating paintings, drawings, and notebooks, not to mention Anton himself, a character worthy of his own reality TV show. Though aging, infirm, cranky, and solitary, Anton also is funny and utterly resilient. The film’s remarkable journey follows a gifted artist through startling twists and turns. By its quietly satisfying ending, Almost There has provided enough human drama for a season of soap operas, plus insights into mental illness, aging in America, and the redemptive power of art.
