It's great to be noticed for this humorous, comic book style depiction. I was able to stretch my creative muscles and provide a great piece of media
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2009
Robert Capria has been selected as a featured artist on GeniusRocket.com for his video submission based on Stefan the Pilot. The contest was launched to introduce the character to a global audience with a short, fun, and aspirational video allowing for complete freedom of stylistic license.
Robert Capria has also been featured on several sites for his creative works, including Poptent.com. Poptent is a community website of filmmakers connecting with potential clients and each other, as well as actors, comedians, and more. Members are encouraged to build profiles, and a few great filmmakers are chosen each month to be featured on their homepage. In August, Capria's Old Spice Everclear "Captain B.O." commercial depiction was chosen for this prestigious spot on the homepage.
"It's great to be noticed for this humorous, comic book style depiction. I was able to stretch my creative muscles and provide a great piece of media," Capria stated.
Robert Capria owns Actuality Films, a production company of animations, storyboards, and illustrations. They also provide editing for interested clients. Actuality Films specializes in using 2D animation to present work with classical cinematic storytelling techniques.
Among Capria's other achievements in June and July was the 2nd place award for Vertical Measures' "Boost Your Juice Contest". Capria stated, "Actuality Films was honored to receive this $1,000 link building prize. Not only will this help drive traffic to our website, it will also benefit our blog."
The Actuality Films blog focuses on the premise that in the beginning there was only a cameraman, but over the past decades cinematography has evolved. The blog discusses the history of scientific cinematography, and is a forum to view and discuss the pioneers as they moved from photographic motion studies to 35mm cameras and beyond. Capria states, "The source of inspiration for Actuality Films is heavily reliant on the past pioneers of film and animation. Their great and timeless work can be applied today, and is seen in the work we present."
He goes on to say, "The work of Actuality Films represents our unique approach and style. We focus primarily on classic cinematic storytelling techniques, which are usually combined with humor, and specialize in 2D animation and illustrations because we prefer this look. This approach, we think, has a more universal appeal to our audience."
Robert Capria's Stephan the Pilot video is currently featured at GeniusRocket, and his other works are represented on his site directly or his YouTube page. The Actuality Films website is divided up into sections for animation videos, also with storyboards and illustrations, advertising, documentary, and other video projects which reflect Capria's individual style.
