This is my animation Thesis Film done during my time at the Academy of Art University 2010. :)
Bridge is a story about four animal characters trying to cross a bridge, but ending up as obstacles to one another in the process. The moral behind this story revolves around how there are often disagreements or competing paths in life, and the possible results of pride, obstinance, and compromise.
Music by Greg Gauba.
Note: I noticed some websites have been featuring my work around, I am grateful for it. I also appreciate all feedbacks, critiques and comments! But some websites have mistaken that I worked for Pixar, which is a misunderstanding and it is not true. I just wish to correct that. : )
This is a short piece I've done with some shots of people and places I met in Egypt while I was shooting a tourism programme for a flight company in December 2009.
I shot it all using a Canon 5d Mark II and a Glidetrack HD. Edited in FCP and graded with After Effects.
The main theme is "Ah Men El-Fora2" by Amr Diab, covered by a super talented egyptian musician called MARWAN ANWER. The intro is extracted from a song called "Beirut Goes to Cuba".
An Ode To Movement is a jam-packed visual story of real, authentic moments captured by local filmmakers around the world, to remind us that moving is living.
Misfit Shine commissioned us to create this video to help launch their new product on Indiegogo.
"Our activity tracker measures movement" they said.
So we thought, what better way to talk about movement than to see it happen all around the world?
If you like the video, please share it.
Misfit Shine is a really cool new product. The design of it blew us away when Misfit first showed it to us.
It's an elegant activity tracker that you can wear anywhere, we hope you'll check it out at indiegogo.com/misfitshine
