1. Motion Video Wall Animation, split over 3 HD flat panel displays.

    Produced in Apple's Motion 3, this motion video graphics ident for Elliot's Restaurant, situated in the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel. The horizontal lines of varying thickness are part of the overall brand identity for the restaurant, featured on the bar menu designs and décor.

    I've applied random motion & vortex behaviours to animate the lines produced by a replicator in Motion 3. The camera sweeps and pans through the replicator to rest with the logo. These idents are followed by restaurant related material, such as 'Afternoon Tea at Elliot's'.

  2. Motion Graphics Video Wall, split over 3 HD flat panel displays.

    I've created this motion graphics piece through a series of scanned images, converted to B&W, composited as one PSD photoshop file which I've imported to Motion 3 as layers and 3D space. I've then split the layers, giving them more 'Z' space between them and resized to correct for the wide angle effect caused by the camera.

    As the camera pans back through the layers you get a depth of field from items moving independently. The outer border motifs are on a separate 2D layer which are unaffected by the camera movement. A number of the items are cloned layers, so I've only had to edit a few motion masks then move the timings around of each clone to give more of a mixed up drawing effect. Gradient blends, line pass filters and colour treatments produce the final result.

  3. Motion Graphics Animation, split over 3 HD flat panel displays.

    Motion Art video derived from the country's flag & colours, animated by logarithms of the city's GPS co-ordinates.

    I've created a series of background motion graphics videos for the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel in Edinburgh. Each city is based on the conference room names featured at the hotel groups properties.

    Created in Apple's Motion 3, each piece adapts geometric shapes and colours of each locations country flag. Changing properties of particle filters, replicators and effects within Motion 3 using values contained within the city's GPS co-ordinates.

    For example, Geneva Switzerland, the white '+' and red box of the flag emanate for the centre 0,0 and move/attracted to the co-ordinates of Geneva in relation to the canvas/video wall dimensions.

  4. Created by myself. Motion Graphics Video Wall, split over 3 HD flat panel displays.

    Produced using Apple's Motion 3. I used a particle emitter to create a load of dots which are attracted to and orbit around a point to form the logo. The concept of bringing people together 'Get Together' for Apex Hotels conference events.

  5. Created by myself to promote a clients brand.

    Produced using Apple's Motion 3. I created a 3D scene and placed a camera looking down onto a floor. Above this I used a particle emitter to create a load of dots which animate downwards. I applied gravity, edge collision and orbit around to animate the dots bouncing & circle around a point to form the logo.
