1. 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).

    Rules:
    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).

    Goals:
    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

  2. Each year at the 99U Conference we feature a motion reel of inspirational quotes from our speakers that plays in a loop throughout the conference.

    How do you create a reel that you don't get tired of? We focused on telling a story.

    In past years we relied on the use of depth of field and 3D effects moving on changing axes. However, this year we focused on very few elements and simple 2-Dimensional designs that could morph into each other seamlessly, making the objects not only design elements but 'characters' of the story. We drew a lot of inspiration from movie title sequences we love and to the master of it all: Saul Bass.

    CD & DESIGN: Raewyn Brandon & Matias Corea

    ANIMATION: Hugh Gran

  3. Each year at the 99U Conference we feature a motion reel of inspirational quotes from our speakers that plays in a loop throughout the conference.

    This year we opted for simple geometric shapes that were and abstract representation of the quote's content. Each arrangement is a nod to the meaning as well as providing an opportunity for some vivid motion on the big screen at Lincoln Center.

  4. Resonance is the vision of SR Partners; a collaborative project with over 30 independent visual and audio designers / studios. The aim was to explore the relationship between geometry and audio in unique ways.

    Animators and Audio Designers were paired up at the beginning of the project and were given the guidelines to create a piece between 12 and 20, I had the awesome opportunity to work with David Kamp.

    This piece is my approach to the connection between audio and shapes, I tried to give this abstract animation a certain type of emotion, that every movement happening on screen would be more than the sole propose of look cool and sync to the sound, to do this I based this video on a section of John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress", when Christian is guided trough the Interpreters House. It's a very personal, graphic and non-descriptive explanation of this part of one of my favorite books It's intended more to help me as the animator to give some meaning to the animation rather than narrate the story.
    (If you're curious about this you can find an extract of the book here: http://goo.gl/aJ91j)

    It was my honor to work in the same project with such a group of (AMAZINGLY) talented people, those guys really are awesome.

    UPDATE: For those who have been asking for the project files I would be glad to share them, just message me or email me. Let the creative minds explode.
