Drive (2011) – The Quadrant System from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

One of the many pleasures of Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” (2011) is that the shots feel both tightly composed and weirdly unpredictable. Even though most of the images follow a simple quadrant system, Refn puts plenty of subtle touches within the frame. Let’s take a look.

For a recent project, I was tasked with creating an ‘Oscar-Like’ Award for the American Chemical Society (as shown in the turntable below). Exported as an STL file, with color information, and uploaded to Shapeways.com. Although the margins and QC for 3D print were a bit tight, I was pleasantly surprised and somewhat relieved that the translation from 3D file to an actual print was 1-to-1 and minimal troubleshooting was required.
