PORTFOLIO

Please review some of my work.

Motion graphics are animations created by using photos, video footage and/or animation.  The easiest way to describe motion graphics to a client is to think of it like Photoshop but, with moving layers. Sometimes this is created using 2d or 3d elements for the animation. Motion graphics are used in a ton of different ways. Broadcast television, film, presentations, YouTube, Vimeo. Motion graphics continue to evolve as an art form with the incorporation of sweeping camera paths and 3D elements. I’ve been using After Effects for creating motion graphics since 3.0. It’s my go to application for creating this type of work. Please review some of my work and if your in need of some motion graphics please feel free to request a quote.
