    GMUNK was a great flash web designer too who I think insired a lot of 2advanced style.

    He's at Transistor studio's now doing this: http://transistorstudios.com/bg-demo.html

    Yes, Gmunk and tDR must be considered as founders of the techno-style.
    2a took it further and made it 'their' style.

    Some reels (close to, or completely jaw_to_floor):

    Did I miss out on something? The 2a thing isn't about 3d is it?

    The 3d city is nice but can not (has not) to be compared with a reel.

    Hey, I'm glad you think I could do that!

    This video is flawless in its integration of a wide variety of work, as well as its motion timing. It makes me happy! I wouldn't say I "idolize" 2A for this, but I certainly respect them. It's quality work. I like seeing good motion these days -- it's getting harder and harder to find, with Flash sites becoming more "corporate." (Yes, I know this is not Flash ).
    Be Happy.

    I really like the new 2A Reel!

    One thing that is rarely discussed here is how they manage to get such good quality quicktime movies into such small files.

    Any ideas? Are they rendered out of AE? Sorensen compression?

    I have to admit, to me, Bradley Grosh is as close as it gets to being a true designer, true to his name. Designers are meant to make work that reflects themselves, and Brad's work definately does. Its kinda bizarre how he comes up with completely new creations and ideas, whereas other designer's works usually resemble everything they've created.

    And, on saying that, I'll also say that on meeting Bradley, I found him nothing less than a freak He's a weird weird man though I hear he's "normal" at conferences where he's a speaker.

    Maybe its just me

    I like the 2A reel. It's nice but I've seen better. There is this one animation I've safely kept for around a couple of years now. I really don't think anyone has ever seen it...or probably very few. It's a showreel made by Motion Graphiks. Believe me, most of this reel is just flash and it's probably the best reel I could ever set my eyes on (ofcourse, I'm not including any 3d or after fx animations here, just flash with an exception of 3d touches here and there).

    I've never seen this reel on FK before and always wanted to post it up here but never quite had the time . Anyway main problem being, the animation is 4 megs. And I've run out of hosting space. So, if anyone out there could kindly host this file up and show it to the FK world, I'd be glad...could meet up on MSN to pass it on....

    Question... is there a name for this type of motion graphics? I see people have different styels and I'm wondering if they name their style?

    We've given them names ourselves, there arent any hard and fast names for these styles, as far as I know.

    The 2Advanced is a techy style, while Gmunk is a mixture of techy and retro and sometimes organic (grungy as in one of the heavy.com's). Some of the stuff could also be categorised as "trendwhore".

    It very well done and put together, but I guess what people are pointing out here is that its very similar to most video demo reels. Considering 2a isn't a video production company, you have to give some kudos to it.

    But ya, in comparison to other reels I've seen better. Nice source of broadcast and film production is www.imaginaryforces.com. They do some crazy stuff.

    So much hating, in a thread full of great work.

    As a demo reel, it was cool and entertaining.

    The thing that I am hung up on is that this was presented at a local aiga event? Maybe its just me, but hearing 2A and AIGA in the same scentence seems...... not right haha

    cool work none the less, It would be nice to see a v.5 soon.....

    Kyle Cooper is fantastic. I think he left imaginary forces and started this: http://www.prologuefilms.com/

    Glad I could start such a lively debate.

    I do see one thing though. People are getting WAY hung up on comparing these reels. All of them are different in a different style, and from what I've seen, they each do what they INTEND to do extremely well.

    Very well done indeed by 2A

    I think the reason why people tend to say it is not "THAT" good is because they are designers themselfs who would have maybe taken it EVEN higher up. I thought that myself but this reel did what 2A wanted it to do as simple as that. This is 2A - Take it or leave it
