As a farewell to 2011, we have selected 32 brilliant videos from the last five issues of Motion Gallery, which were themed around Network Branding, Projection Mapping, Mixed Media, Infographics and 8Bit Video-Games Technology, as well as from the online channel IdN Onair. This review of the best work to have appeared over the course of a year will become an annual feature.


We bring you the best of the best!

Out of the 170+ videos from the last five issues of Motion Gallery and our online channel IdN Onair, we have selected 32 that we think are worth watching again – the pick of the crop. Apart from all the stunning work in this "Best of the Best" collection, Argentinian artist Mariano Sidoni and the creative collective Carne Hueso present an exclusive process video for IdN readers only. Plus fascinating logo animations, music videos, TV commercials… all in one DVD.
