In the 70s and 80s Robert Abel & Associates were pretty much the
kings of CGI and animation. They managed to encapsulate all that was
rad at the time in terms of colour, neon, typography and futurism into
everything that they touched and among other things were responsible
for the effects on Sci-Fi cult film classics such as Tron
and The Black Hole
It's a true testament to their
skill and sense of style that 30 years later, their graphics could
still be considered inspirational and even more mind blowing when you
consider the technology that had to produce their work at the time. Everything is so epic, dramatic, over the top and awesome. Mad
The following clips are just a few samples of some of the gold that
they produced. Imagine how much better television could be if these
kind of ads were still around.
Probably still one of my favourite clips of all time.
