I've noticed a lot of hype recently about the Transformers. But check this car by Scott Robertson, it looks like it could transform into the LW Logo at any moment :D

and after seeing the Scion transformer car movie it would be kinda cool to animate the car into the LW logo. That would be fun.

yeah the Scion one was good, I could see something like that with the LW Logo.

I only looked at it in quicktime,
But it seemed to me it didn't actually transform, rather they had flashes of blocks and part-revealed car intercut, door like objects roughly where they needed to be etc..
Then at the end did an object swap and removed the 'flashcuts' completely.
Not that it wasn't good, but I didn't see anything to make me think it was a full blown 'transformers' type sequence.

yep they cheated to their teeth:) cheating as much as possible is a good thing though.

there are a bunch of effects to kinda distract the eye from the transformation... and it works. It couldn't have never be a full transform, look at the massive size of the robot!

I thought the job they did on the robot running down the street wasn't so great. The car which was much smaller had the impression of speed but the bot looked like it was hardly moving.

Yeah I was thinking Newtek should offer a challenge a free copy of 8 for the best LW logo animation ;)

Looks a bit like a combination of the LW logo and the Batmobile. :) Love it.
