As I produce most of my Motion Graphic / Animation work for Sequence Post Production, Ben Foakes has put together most of my Motion Graphic work into a Showreel for 2010. Many thanks to Ben for putting this together.
Most of the work was created using Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D.
This is an early draft of a title graphic sequence. The light and 3D test have been produced using Cinema 4D, while the overall production was put together using After Effects. The sequence is being produced as part of a pitching process for the production to ITV so will go through some much needed polish for the final version. This draft version introduces vital themes of the series, with a crack in reality and a recurring concept of the eye icon.
Following my recent visit to NAB 2010 I was asked to present the same presentation to the education community. I was at NAB to speak about my practice in title sequences using Adobe After Effects and how this is used as a tutorial on the Mixtape Masters degree programme at Bournemouth University.
As part of my role as an Adobe Education Leader, I was invited by Adobe to speak at NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) 2010 in Las Vegas. I was speaking on my own practice within Adobe After Effects, showing my work done in title sequences for the BBC and how I use this as an excercise for training the BBC as part of the mix tape masters degree at Bournemouth University.
Cu3er is a Flashed based image rotater that does not require Flash to edit, it just requires any application that can open and edit XML documents to point to the images and then it will do all the rest. When the images change, the cube rotates using one of many transition effects that can be customized and changed. You can set the cube to slice into pieces and then rotate one at a time and even add shading to the effects. This creates some really nice eye candy that is sure to capture your visitors and bring attention to your site.
The tutorial uses Adobe Dreamweaver as the XML editor, but you can use any plain text editor and Adobe Photoshop to create the slides.
