Flash Animation: Peace, Love, Coffee!

  • November 27, 2012

Fun Flash animation I did for a local coffee roasting company. In retrospect I think it drags a little at the end but I wanted to give the viewer plenty of time to read the text. http://youtu.be/Q4lLktPnEZw

Animation Work in Progress: Angry Skies

  • November 21, 2012

This dramatic piece is the setting for some additional 3D animation to be added later. The cloud animation was created in Vue, the volcano drawn in Xara Designer Pro, and the smoke plume and meteor effects were created in After Effects. Additional postprocessing and soundtrack were added using Premiere Pro. Additional animation is currently being worked in Lightwave. NOTE: this animation is finished and the WIP posting has been deleted. See above for a more recent post with the new video link.

Animated Flying Logo: Go Local!

  • November 21, 2012

This is a "flying logo" intro piece created for a local promotion company. The animation was created in Lightwave, with postprocessing and soundtrack addition in Premiere Pro. Render times for the volumetric "light sweep" effect approached 45 minutes per individual frame (there are roughly 30 frames per second of animation). While faster times are possible by approximating volumetrics using programs like After Effects, I do not believe the quality is nearly as high as just doing it the "real" way. http://youtu.be/3xFpADQshg8

Animated Spinland Logo

  • November 21, 2012

This is my personal take on the "flying logo" theme. The base logo layer was created in Photoshop Extended, and then animated in After Effects. Final postprocessing (including adding the soundtrack) was handled in Premiere Pro. http://youtu.be/qqtsKSanRQc

Animated Short: Lawnmower Guy

  • November 21, 2012

This is a lighthearted lawnmower commercial piece. The clouds were created in Vue. The animations were created in Lightwave in separate layers, then everything was composited together with a soundtrack in Premiere Pro. http://youtu.be/9g6vR38lc4s
