One of the myriad of things New Media Initiatives is responsible for around the Center is motion graphics. There are already great posts on here about some of the more interesting technical projects involving multiple projectors and fancy software. In addition to these more complicated solutions, we also do some old-fashioned linear motion graphics work in After Effects. I’ll dig into the recesses of my hard drive in the future and post some of that work.
In the meantime, here’s the latest piece for the Insights Lecture Series, which began yesterday. This video is entirely based on the poster designed by Vance Wellenstein and Ryan Nelson, I just added some slightly sophisticated transitions and timing.
This video runs for the period before each lecture start, while visitors are finding seats. It’s used as branding for the series and to remind those who haven’t bought tickets to the next lecture they might just want to. I’ve put the video on Vimeo rather than YouTube because Vimeo’s video quality is much better.
