My motion graphics reel for 2014!
In just 4 weeks, I led a team to design the stage and all of the animated content for a 40-foot wide 3D stage set. This included creating 3D renderings of the stage design and planning for the placement of each of the projectors by simulating their image throws. I then designed an animated the motion graphics on the set, and created a template for my team to use for entering hundreds of animated graphics throughout the week-long event. Created at Cybis Communications
This project required us to highlight the exciting challenges of attending a national conference. I designed and animated this full-length promotional video by using only stock imagery and footage from the prior year. The most important part of this video was nailing the scriptwriting, because without having interviews or a narration, we had to tell an exciting and informative message with as few words as possible. Then I used a library of stock photos in a faux-3D environment to simulate a world with great depth using only 2D layers in After Effects.
When our team won the contract to develop hours of content for a permanent LED art installation at Orlando's #1 luxury shopping destination, I developed the automated templates used by our team to create and simulate our collection of video titles. I either led or developed dozens of titles over 18 months. I personally created this title using Particular and Adobe After Effects.
