    In motion graphics you can always spot trends (call it copycats or being inspired, whatever you prefer). After the popular geometric & circle animations, since a year there are more and more animations turning up in which organic shapes transform in a liquid way.

    Shapes are smeared and splash back together, often at the moment of a peak in the action, moving in slight slow motion, with twists and bends. It kind of resembles the flowerpower / psychedelic shapes known from the 60’s.

    One of the earlier motion graphics with this appearance, were some of the videos of the advertising agencies CRCR and Buck (2 years ago). I also found one example that appeared already in 2008 in the video Orgesticulanismus by Mathieu Labaye. And you can find this same kind of movement in earlier anime movies.

    Abstract drops and smears, swirling typography, and even characters whose limbs are being stretched and swirled – yes, maybe it’s a countermovement against the downward trend of geometrical squares, triangles and circle-transitions.

  2. Created for Pause Fest Melbourne 2014: pausefest.com.au/
    Music and Sound Design by Danca: danca.tv/
    Making of: vimeo.com/87472185

    We were honored with the privilege of participating along with other great animators, designers & studios to create an ident for this year's Pause Fest in Melbourne.

    The Pause Fest 2014 is all about being connected. After several ideas and sketches drops to the trash, we decided to make an ID where communication devices from different eras would be mixed through various scenes and situations.

    A tunnel connects a mobile device with a mouth sending morse code smoke signals that turns into msm or whatsapp messages in the cloud or a carrier pigeon that flies from the mobile screen.

    We decided to join the new with the prehistorical in an encounter where the data transfer and the connection are almost dreamlike or surreal, to end with the most basic and primitive connection, the human contact.

    Special thanks to George, Caspian and the entire Pause Fest Crew for the opportunity and Daniele Carmosino for the incredible sound design.

    Estamos muy contentos por tener el privilegio de participar junto con otros increíbles animadores, diseñadores y estudios para crear un ID para el Pause Fest de este año en Melbourne.

    El Pause Fest 2014 trata la temática "estar conectados". Luego de varias ideas y bocetos tirados, decidimos realizar un ID donde dispositivos de comunicación de diferentes eras, se vayan mezclando a lo largo de diversas escenas o situaciones.

    Así un túnel conecta un dispositivo móvil con una boca emitiendo código morse, señales de humo que se convierten en msm o mensajes de whatsup en la nube o una paloma mensajera sale de una pantalla de celular.

    Decidimos juntar lo nuevo con lo casi prehistórico en un encuentro donde la transmisión de datos y la conexión son casi oníricos o surrealistas. Para terminar con la conexión más básica y primitiva, el contacto humano.

    Un agradecimiento especial a George, Caspian y todo el equipo del Pause Fest por la oportunidad y a Daniele Carmosino por el increible audio que realizó.

  4. In April of 2012, I was asked to speak at a local design college about the wonderful career of a motion graphics designer. I created this video in After Effects to use as my "PowerPoint" on steroids.

    The best part of the presentation was talking with the students afterward and hearing, first-hand, how amped-up they now were to be a part of the motion graphics industry.
