Magnus Atom just finished his undergraduate thesis film for Parsons: New School for Design. Black Mags is an animated product spot for the Nike Mags from Back to the Future. With amazing work like this for school, the giants on 5th Avenue will surely be knocking down his door even before he graduates!
If you thought the mini cannon was cool, you haven’t seen the mini crossbow!
“This miniature crossbow works in exactly the same way as the common full-size hunting crossbow, but in terms of power to weight ratio, the mini crossbow is almost 4X stronger.
It shoots three types of handmade aluminum arrows:
1. Basic (steel-tipped) arrows
2. Ramming arrows
3. Flare arrows
It took me many hours and countless experiments to build and perfect this mini-crossbow and its arrows. Every part was tested and modified countless times until the optimal technical and ergonomic level was reached, as well as becoming a thing of beauty.
The mini-crossbow was much harder to build than the mini-cannon which appears in my previous videos.”
