I am currently teaching a motion graphic design course to the 2D animation students at the University of Hertfordshire. They have been given a brief to create a 1 minute documentary film which uses motion graphics as it’s main means of communication. I have decided to follow along and make my own short film. I shot my footage a couple of weeks ago in the Hoddesdon High Street when the fair was in town. It was a beautiful evening and the fairground lights looked exquisite against the darkening sky. The final film will incorporate text, moving graphics and rhythmic visual sequences.
This weekend just gone saw my first gallery exhibition for some time. It took place at Gravelly Barn in Braughing, a group show of local artists with proceeds going to a number of cancer charities. It was a beautiful show and a pleasure to be involved. Photographs of the work produced can be seen on the gallery page. It feels like the beginning of a larger series, I am excited to see what happens next.
This is a still frame of the universe animation that the two, from my previous post “Prototype August 10”, are looking at. The final video sequence is currently rendering, only 6 hours and 45 minutes until completion.
