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
Daniel Plym, Director of Video Publishing at Buzzine.com, gave us a crash course on how he uses his 5D for red carpet shoots. He is a one man operation and breaks down how he combines the 5D with a Zoom audio recorder, Sennheiser Wireless microphone, Pluraleyes software and Final Cut to capture clean audio.
