Meet Smith

Posted November 11, 2014


Toronto-based Crush, Notch, AXYZ and Lollipop have come together, combining their creative skill and craftsmanship to forge a new identity.

Meet Smith, a shop that proves that four core competencies are better than one, comprising AXYZ’s VFX and animation wizardry, Notch’s colour grading artistry, Crush’s wide-ranging creative exploration and Lollipop’s diverse digital capabilities.

Smith has a huge range of talent ranging from some of the top people in the industry to a wide variety of up and coming artists and producers. Smith’s a production/post/digital shop that’s better, faster, stronger and more relevant to today’s industry. View their montage reel above.

Want to get a look inside Smith? Well, tune into the SadieCam (a French Bulldog armed with a GoPro) tomorrow from 12pm-2pm (Eastern). Sadie will be giving virtual visitors a look at Smith and its talented team of Smithites.

Nice. Some new work from PES. I love PES. And I love that this new film, commissioned by Italian designer Delfina Delettrez, is a little different from their past work, which often features everyday objects in unexpected situations.

The film, “Black Gold,” features insects that appear in Delettrez’s latest line of jewelry. You can view the collection here.
