This is a motion graphics piece centered around Kinetic Typography. The theme is The Cross of Jesus Christ. It was made for a Christian Bible Conference in Northwest Indiana. It was featured during a service there for 5,000-6,000 delegates. The purpose was to impress, to motivate, to make people rethink concepts of the Cross, and to emphasize the speaking soundtrack, and the score.
Beside the fact that it was a fun project to execute, and well worth the fruits of my labor.
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.
