I spent 8+ hours animating today, and about 8+ hours yesterday. I didn’t make it too far last night before I crashed despite a zillion cups of coffee. At least it reinforced my love for motion design. There are not many other project types that keep my attention that long, aside from lettering. It was nice animating all day.
Aside from tons of animation, I drank a lot of coffee. I do plan to keep animating the title sequence. Due to time constrictions, I pulled out some of the boards. It got overwhelming animating every square and trying to figure out the shape layers. So many null objects. So many. It took me a couple hours to get in the groove. I realize I should have begun animating last week, but I just wanted to keep designing!
This project is so much fun and I’m happy with the current result, although I want a complete version of it still. For that portfolio! I didn’t even get a chance to tinker with the sound design! For future projects, I’ll make sure to start animating sooner.
I’ll continue working on it, but here’s the current state of the animation. Feel free to give a critique since it’s still a work in progress!
This is my entry for the @pond5official and @redgiantnews contest which is to create a title sequence based on an existing one. I based mine on Man Seeking Woman opening credits by @digitalkitchen but I switched the theme to National Novel Writing Month. All icons and elements were made by me. The contest ends tonight so this is my entry, but I plan to make a longer version with more animated elements at a later date. #p5createthings #nanowrimo #motiongraphics #mograph #redgiant
