Cinema 4D practice

Some quick animations I put together using dynamics, mograph, etc. Multi-pass renders rock 🙂

Logo bounce animation

Lebron James inspired animation




Mograph fun

Playing around with the mograph module, I decided to create something for my friend Dave, who just happens to be the biggest UNC fan. Watching the tar heels win the NCAA championship was painful, so creating this image was kind of like systematic desensitization for me.



Kobe Part II

In between commercials during the NBA playoffs, I found myself playing around and experimenting in After Effects. As mentioned in the previous post, I specifically started creating a motion graphics spot for Kobe Bryant as I was very inspired by his playoff run. I should’ve known that I’d be jinxing him from the moment I started the project and sure enough, the Lakers are down 2-0 to the much despised Celtics.  I decided to stop work on the spot after about a week and half of time.  My excuse is that I want to stop the jinx I put on the Lakers so that they can bounce back and start winning. However, the real reason is a busy schedule and a lack of free time. It’s a bit sloppy right now but check out the first mix below or click the vimeo link:



Watching Kobe Bryant make his run through the playoffs and onto the NBA championships has been pretty remarkable and very entertaining. Regardless if you are a Kobe fan or not, its been nice to see someone bounce back from so much adversity and carry himself with such poise and maturity. Without a doubt, he stands up there in the top 10 players to ever play the game.

Recently, I’ve had a very strong urge to create a motion graphics spot after viewing some works by Johnason Lo. He’s based out of Taiwan and his work is visually beautiful. All of his spots are so rich and he definitely takes ‘bling’ to a whole new level. So for my creative outlet, I found it fitting to create a spot on Mr. MVP himself. Below are some screenshots taken from my work in progress. Stay tuned…
