Make cutting-edge animations in DIY homes.

Nowadays, it is common for young people to live with their parents after they graduate from college, but few people try to remake their old home like the movie producer Isaiah Saxon.

In filmmaking partner Sean haier fritsch and darren rabin Norwich, with the help of Saxon has located in Anaheim, calif., mother’s around the house more than 10 hills into trout valley, this is a rural hackers space, they build their own houses, organic vegetables, milk goats and making the most advanced digital animation.

The Rabinovitch hut combines the original design with more advanced solar technology. Trout Gulch’s 18 residents live in small houses, cottages and treehouses.

Saxon explains how his 21st century pioneers handled everything in their own way.

“We’re building a 21st century hobbit village, integrating things into nature,” says Saxon. “but we’re using cutting-edge technology and embracing the best technology.”

Saxon stresses the vision of technology being integrated into nature – and the “hobbit village” is not far away. Rabinovich, 33, lives in a small straw house with a four-foot high door.

“It’s basically a bedroom that can last about 10 years after it’s built, and then the beautiful recession returns to the land and becomes covered,” rabinovich said.

Outside his hut, there is a solar panel installed by Rabinovitch to drive lights and laptops. This is a reminder of how the countryside and the space age coexist in trout canyon.

Avoid the “empty existence” path.

The wooded hills of California’s central coast seem unlikely to be the site of digital animation, but this is exactly where the three-man group is based.

They call themselves the encyclopaedia Pictura, and their work is very different. They created an AD for the video game Spore. For artists like bjork and grizzly. They are also making a feature film about a group of children who did DIY reconstruction after the floods hit their town.

Encyclopedia Pictura’s Bjork’s “wanderlust” video won three yellow pencils at the 2009 D&AD awards.


They now need so much that they have the ability to hire a small team of computer graphics technicians at the Berkeley film studio. But their offices still have more than three desks and laptops.

“We’ve been asked to advertise,” Mr. Saxon said, adding that companies like Sprite, jeep and Honda have approached the studio.

But according to Saxon, the encyclopedia Pictura advertises only the products they actually use.

“Of course we can maximize our potential of money now,” he said, “but it will hinder and slow the progression of we are building this community, and would take us on a path to a may be empty.”

Build the power around you.

For Saxon and other homes, meaningful existence is devoted to sustainable architecture and agriculture. They use composting toilets, and take turns milking goats, and they make a lot of money from commercial animation projects to spend a lot of time developing infrastructure in Trout Gulch.

The meals were cooked in a homemade igloo oven just a few steps away from the garden. Because of the information provided by the online community of the family brewers, the commercial refrigerator that was discarded by neighbors was blackened as a very efficient refrigerator.

“I might spend at least half of my time reading BBS on the Internet – not just for entertainment, just like trying to solve problems,” said Sean Hellfritsch, co-founder of the community. “So I can jump on BBS and get in touch with someone… It’s really critical.”

They got to live personally to help friends in the gulf region – mostly in their 20 s and 30 s volunteers, they are all workers of volunteers, and think that they are a part of this place – there are some famous figures, including Tim Anderson, DIY movement, they call it the DIY super hero.

Augmented reality allows users to recognize an object from the real world – in this case the plant – and interact with it digitally.

Saxon said: “we are provide an opportunity for people and let them gain more experience in land and do bigger things, rather than the one with all the legal and physical space within the city limits.” “I think people are excited about the freedom of this place and the amazing empowerment that you can build around you.”

Make ‘magic’

The idea of building everything around you is that Trout Gulch’s filmmakers are also exploring new entertainment and education media. It is called augmented reality, which allows real-time views of the surrounding environment to become digital and interact with programmatic content.

In other words, it’s like the video game in the real world.

“The essence of what you have is magic,” Saxon said. But, he adds, augmented reality is not just for games.

“We think this is a new type of innovation in the 21st century,” Saxon explains. He says he wants the encyclopedia Pictura to provide guidance for the content design of such systems. “We like to think of ourselves as Walt Disney, trying to be an augmented reality.”

But at the same time, Trout Gulch’s filmmakers continue to milk goats, expand their sustainable villages, and harness the frontiers of digital design.
