Hello one and all!

Good to find a home for me on these forums, been doing video for a while now but I have just set up my company, FNKY Design. Just finished a piece of work for a snowboard magazine, looking to go and shoot the feature in the very near future. Any how... Down to business

thats where this new motion gfx composition is! It took me about 20hrs including image preparation.

Hope you like it :)

Nice work Fnky and welcome to the forum. These things take forever and most are bobby dazzlers!

Good stuff. If I was doing this I would use after effects for compositing. I appreciate the time involved. I used to spend hours upon hours in AE doing this sort of stuff, then my wife would kick me off or something like that.

Cheers.

Owrr thanks!

I used after effects and illustrator.

The techniques used in the composition range from using masking movement, (pretty complex round the frilly bits), camera movement with light parenting (2 lights one parented, moves with, the camera one that you see strike at the beginning that shines down on the board).

The hands that "throw" the titles on are mine! and I used a greenscreen to isolate them. then effects (desaturate and equalise) added.

Hope that clears things up :)

Hey, welcome to the forum. That's very good work! I do some MoGraph stuff myself, but none as good as that. I particularly like the handheld motion given to the camera.

Ah yeh its a fun little technique, jus putting in a few point of interest keyframes that are slightly (only a few degrees) off the main path of the camera every half second - 1sec intervals. Its particularly useful when there isnt enough movement on the screen to maintain attention.
