Here you will find multiple projects created as part of the 3 day motion graphics symposium here at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Title: Inspire 2012 Screen Wash
Role: Motion (Animated backdrop), Film, Concept Development
Others Involved: Po-Chen Chia Samuel Scott
Date: March 2012
Production Time: 1 Week
Software: Cinema 4D, Adobe Illustrator CS5, After Effects CS5
Awards: Winner of 2nd Place in the CoMotion Best 3D Compositing Category HERE
The concept behind this design was to look at the word inspire from its archaic definition. We found that it had meant “to breath life into.” With this in mind, we thought that the visual aesthetic of dynamically affected “balloon-like” text would be appropriate to portray the very abstract idea of inspiration. Inspiration at its core is both something that can come from our environment (out of thin air) or from within ourselves. We wanted to show that inspiration is truly in the palm of our hands but it isn’t such a tangible thing that be can just go out and grab it. For this reason we made them as those “balloon-like” letters tethered by mere strings to a person’s hand. This shows how inspiration given a chance could disappear as quickly as it came.
This project was intended as a class competition to see who would continue on and develop the Inspire conference branding and packaging. This won and as a result the below project were created.

Title: Inspire Titles (Speaker Introduction) / Speaker Title Cards
Role: Motion (3D Modeling and Camera Movement), Concept
Others Involved: Po-chen Chia Samuel Scott
Date: April 2012
Production Time: 2 Days
Software: Cinema 4D, Adobe Illustrator CS5, After Effects CS5, Nuke 6.3
Our direction behind this project was to take an existing logo type poster by our department and turn it into the driving image reference behind an animation title sequence and speaker introduction cards. We ran with the “Tron-like” design of the initial poster and wanted to create this title sequence to be cohesive with what was being developed on the CoMotion side of the symposium. Since light was a driving force in both symposiums, we decided to create these structures that were essentially “light pylons” that would emit beams of light to create the type form.
Title: CoMotion 2012 Titles
Role: Concept Development, Rock Modeling
Others Involved: Nathan K. Boyd, Blake Johnson, David Conklin, Ben Gabelman, Joe Dunlap, Jordan Taylor, Lauren Ratcliff, CJ Cook, Grant Hoki, Ryan Brownhill, Lindsay Bohn
Date: April 2012
Production Time: 6-8 Weeks
Software: Cinema 4D, After Effects CS5
These are the opening titles from this years student organized motion graphics symposium, “COMOTION 2012″
This sequence is a allegory for us as students entering the industry.
The small falling rock is the inspiration we receive from the industry; it creates sparks of thought and ultimately fractures to unleash our potential as the next generation of creative professionals. Our light travels through the cave, finally engulfing the industry, hovering above us. This collision changes the industry as we know it into something that surpasses what once existed.
