Energy In Motion

Created over the course of a month. I wanted to use basic shapes (circles and triangles) with an emphasis on energy. I did both the animation and sound design. The audio was courtesy of the Freesound Project.

Deconstructed

Something I put together for a potential project that ended up falling through. I used both Cinema 4D, and After Effects with the help of Element 3D.

Hope you like what you see!

Sticky Fingers Rough

I created this completely in After Effects (a 2D program for the uninitiated) for a freelance job I acquired with EyeCandyDC. This was created for a potential ad for Stick Fingers Bakery in Silver Spring, Maryland. I was given a general design outline from the creative director and was given free reign to create the rest. Coming up with the idea was the most difficult the second was actually executing my ideas. Everything in this piece is actually 2D or 2.5D to give an illusion that the book is actually 3D. The page turns took the bulk of the time to try and get as close as possible to reality. All in all for a rough piece I feel it turned out fairly well.

Glowing Text

Name Plate

I created this piece in Cinema 4d. This is an unaltered render (no photoshop). To create this I found vector logos of companies like Apple, Vans, PS3, Xbox 360, and Infiniti. I then typed things about myself and what I do and outlined them in Illustrator so I could then bring them into Cinema 4d to extrude the vectors to generate depth. I then painstakingly created the glowing name as well as my website. I will also be putting a photoshoped version at a later date. Let me know what you think!

Basic Motion design.

Description
For each phase of this project, choose a distinct emotional expression. Adobe After Effects will be used to
create a simple animation that communicates the essence of the expression. In the first phase, the animation is limited
to a single line. Throughout each phase, a different element of motion design will be explored, adding to the
complexity of the animation and providing additional means of communicating character, emotion and personality.
Create each phase as a separate composition (not a new project!). For the final movie, compile all phases/compositions
with a title card appearing between each phase to act as a transition and label. All elements of this project must be
abstract and non-representational.
Consider how pacing, time and space, composition, continuity and rhythm affect the meaning portrayed in the
animation. Experiment with size, direction, interaction and movement of objects.

Kinetic Typography

This was my first attempt at kinetic typography and this is the first class i have used after effects but, i thoroughly enjoyed the project it took between  20-30 hours to complete.

Project Description:

Choose a conversation consisting of  two characters only. This cannot be a monologue. Your source could -
be an interview, recorded phone conversation, radio or movie clip, or another conversation of your choice.  This
may not be a conversation among you and your friends and the conversation must be approved by
the instructor. Your animation must sync up with your audio clip. Be sure your clip is a high quality recording. 

Create an animated version of the conversation that is typography dominant. The use of imagery and design
elements is allowed so long as it supports the concept of the design. This animation is a visual portrayal of
the conversation and as such it must capture the personalities, characteristics and intonation found within the
conversation. It must visually distinguish each individual who is “speaking.” Consider how to visually represent
punctuation using pauses, pacing, movement and rhythm, rather than actual punctuation itself.
