The basics of motion design as interpreted by the students of the "Basics of Motion Design"-class at the Hochschule für Künste (University of the Arts) in Bremen.
In a series of short single episodes different basic principles of motion design are explained (as well as explored by the students in the process).
Use the design template provided by the instructor.
Use only the most basic functions of After Effetcs. No Effetcs. No PlugIns (though students did bend these rules at one time or another).
Concentrate on getting the message across. Design using motion properties (hence the design template). Learn, what motion design is about. Ignore software-related technical issues.
Instructor: Henning Rogge
Students: Filippo Baraccani, Elena Fergani, Mikko Gärtner, Helene Maus, Wladimir Schwabauer
This is where it all began. It was our first attempt to design and produce one of our ideas for a film. Having done the shooting, we were not happy with the result and so we had to scrap the initial idea and start all over. We experimented and improvised with the music, the editing and the graphics until we felt we had something. Having no expectations, we posted it on vimeo. The feedback was quick and overwhelming. People’s comments from around the world, gave us the motivation to continue with more films for the series.
Based in Paris, France, Motion Plus Design was created in 2011.
Its main goal is to promote the art of Motion Design around the world by allowing people, students and professionals to discover artists and meet one another.
Since 3 years, Motion Plus Design set up multiple events in Paris & Tokyo which bring up to 800 people on a full day event.
