Music Visulization – Universal Mind Control

March 18, 2009

Oh hello, wow its been awhile huh? Ok lets get back on this horse shall we?

For my Advance Motion Graphics class at Full Sail, we were to use 30 seconds of music and add some motion graphics touch to it. So I used Universal Mind Control by Common and I had my friend DJ Ghetto D remix the song for me. He pump out a few of them and I feel in love with this one, which was the first one he sent.

The premise was, to have a guy who uses his mind to knock down the objects going by. No it’s not the afro knocking them down! And yes that is a characterization of me with shades, lol.


Wonderworks 3D Model

February 4, 2009

I created this 3D model, of the Wonderworks building in Orlando, FL.
In October, me and Dawn Dawn took a trip to see the building and snapped some photos of it.
And of course we had to snap some pics for Facebook!

Here’s is the pre pro:

These are some of the early builds:

And this is the final render with all the materials:

The video was created in After Effects and the song is Teddybears Mix by Lisa Miskovsky.

Motion Graphics Branding Project – Pixel Junk Eden

December 24, 2008

Oh snap, son jay did it to em. Yeah in their face 2x’s!

Oh hello, just wanted to pump you guys up. LOL. Any hoot, here is my print ad and 30+ second video, I created for motion graphics class at Full Sail. We were to choose a product or a cause and create a layout for it, like for a magazine and a 30 second video. We could use all the effects but not video or 3d.

At first I was going to do something with Crop Over and have a lot of dancing and celebrating going on to represent it. I had the music, the pre pro but, I just couldn’t figure out what to do with it. Everything was due at 5pm on Friday, Dec.19. I didn’t get anything done until, on Tuesday, Dec. 16, when I decided to scrap the whole damn thing and go with Pixel Junk Eden, a game I’ve been playing on and off for weeks. Yes ladies and gentlemen, all the assets I made for this project in Photoshop and Illustrator and were put together in After Effects, was done in less than four days!!!

Here is the original print ad I showed during critiques:

The main complaint, oops I mean critique I got from the teacher was that, in my video it had different graphics in the background and here it’s just a black background. I was trying to recreate the main menu for the game here and in the first 10 seconds of the video.

Here is two others I create using the assets from the video, both during my flight from FL to CT!

I like the pinkish one, it’s pretty.

AND FINALLY here’s the video. We were only allowed 30 seconds and I did that for the critiques but, while on xmas break I wanted to extend the video just a few seconds more to tweak somethings here and there. Seriously who opens up After Effects during their time off school? Jmo does. I wanted to recreate the opening main menu as well as the gameplay for Pixel Junk Eden:

I learned a lot this time around for example; the pink tower with the yellow curves used the stroke effect and I used that through out the video with the silk and black tree. Whoa what a long post! If you read most of it than +1 for you, if all of it than +2 for you! Music: Become part of this(First 10 seconds) and 637 volpe(rest of the video) by Baiyon from the PixelJunk™ Eden ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK.
