Hello and welcome back to my blog!!
As you can see from the title, I’m very excited about motion graphics just because I’m quite passionate and I watch a lot of motion graphics stuff!
Below are some of my favorites:
The opening of Monster Inc. is definitely one of my favs. It gives a brief overview and foreshadows the movie without giving away much, keeps the audience watching with the interesting visuals. No matter how many times I watch it, I still can’t predict what scene comes next. It’s just so fun to watch!
This is one of my favorite K-pop music videos, it’s from K-pop artist Mino’s “I’m Him”. It incorporates visual rainbow graphic motion which is really cool to watch. The graphics are very refreshing and adds extra context to the video footage underneath to convey the meaning of the lyrics from the music. The flow and transition between one visual to the other is so fluid and smooth, even though the shots of the music video change every few seconds, the graphic motion help connect and lead the audiences’ from one scene to the other >> as you can see from 1:40 to 2:10 of the MV (which is also my fav part from it)
The next one I’m showing here is a Google promo video, I find it really awesome, also because all the visuals blend and transition so well with each other. The flow of the whole thing is just so unbelievably smooth while being very informational at the same time. The whole thing keeps audience retention and The graphics are really bubbly and cute as well, so I really like it.
Some other ones I like:
Also, we are going to do a motion graphics prototype assignment in class in After Effects. We’re creating a 5-10 second teaser for a movie/book. I think I’m going to do a teaser for the movie “The 40 Year Old Virgin“. It’s one of my favorite movies and as a comedic genre, I think I can experiment a lot with the colour palette to make it fun an bubbly. I’m also thinking of doing some abstract art animations with some movie references to symbolize the main character Andy Stitzer. I’ll probably have to experiment with frame-by-frame animations and tweens in AE!
In conclusion I think I really like it when motion graphics are used in MVs haha!
Anyways, that’s all for this week, I’ll see you again soon~ 🙂
