Vrtx Animation

Animations I've made for VJing and Personal Projects.

Finally had some time to test a new technique I’ve been playing with lately. Animation one day, sound design another.

This is using an asset i created for VJing a while ago. I decided to re-render it and create something interesting in after effects with it. i like the song, i might write it into a  longer version.

This is my submission for Cut and Paste SF 2012. I think i could have won if i spent a little more time on it. I finished 3 hours before everyone else but still got an amazing crowd response when it was displayed. Just makes me want to work harder!

I saw a design similar to this on a flyer. I wanted to figure out how to recreate it using Shape layers in After Effects. Since it was in After Effects i decided to make it move and wrote some music to it. I guess the center design has something to do with finding your heart. Hence the heart image inside of a nautical compass shape.

Using particles to grow hair. I’m already making another version where the hair will actually be made of polygons.

I spent a lot longer on the music than i usually would for an animation like this. Much of my inspiration for that came from this track on Merck:

Just a quick animation using Cinema 4d. Been working with the mograph plug in a lot lately. A little post work done in After Effects. Particularly the Twitch effect at beginning and end.
