Daily Inspiration #002

Happy Monday guys!  Today’s Inspiration comes form Troublemakers.tv.  This video is a commercial for CCTV, (A Chinese Television Station) which retraces the history of China through the use of a simulated ink drop effect.  They achieved this effect from a ton of places, utilizing everything from krakatoa and fumefx, to an actual trip to China.  There is also an awesome “Making Of” you can watch here.  This is a great example of how being creative with new workflows and techniques can really create some stunning visual effects.
