Una llama en medio del camino... a Jr.canest blog... that's me, I drink orange juice out of a wine glass. And what about me? I'm a Bolivian Motion Designer (you know, animation, design, that kind of stuff) a lover of music, someone that wouldn't be here if it wasn't because of God's grace. PS. for awesomeness and cool videos I created Wine After Coffee. a vimeo channel.
Every once in a while, my job is full of lasers & keyframes.
The agency Breakway approached us with this project, an extremely simple video to describe this new product. A dentist laser that basically replaces the drill… kinda cool.
After that, it was a matter of seeing how it was going to look and move:
And eventually I finished all designs and nico and I finished the animation.
Laser and keyframes, I’m telling you.
Many moons ago, I was working on a project for one of my favourite ministries, Ligonier.
The project was for one of their new tools called Ligonier Connect: Blueprint, which is an online tool to help Churches, Ministries, Schools and Families to manage better the resources that are used, have lessons provided by the trusted Bible teachings of Ligonier or even create your own materials there.
We started on the project but because of some re-thinking that had to be done for the video the project was put on hold. But we had some cool frames, this one made by the talented James Graves:
At that time, it was me, Phil Borst and James working on it, and this was going to be the video:
Eventually, the video came back to life, but this time, Tom Froese jumped to take over the design, I was still directing the whole thing and Phil would help us with the animation, and that’s how it happened!
Here is the storyboard we had, and one of Tom’s first frames.
I’ve said this already and will say it again, It’s awesome to work on awesome projects for awesome ministries with awesome people. And this would have not happened without the help from the team, Dirk Naves, Tom Froese and Phil Borst.
Thank you guys, it was quite the blessing!
“Wasserman + Partners brought us in to produce one in a long string of great creative for Encorp’s Return-it centres. The Initial brief was to build a paper craft video, but the appetite for nifty transitions took us into 3D pretty quickly.”
We were assigned to make the Return-it icons from Encorp to come to life for this TV spot, so we decided to do it this way, I made all the 2D animation on Flash and after that we “traced” it in 3D.
Here is what the 2D looked like:
And some early tests for the 3D renders:
And a bit from C4D:
It was so much fun to make this :)
Sometimes projects start with a good idea but the execution doesn’t match the quality of the idea, so it happened with this:
We made it real! but…
So we started testing with 3D:
And we were finally getting somewhere, we managed to fake play-doh inside C4D and had a lot of fun doing it. Nicholas was a key part to make it happen.
There were some type changes and some details were gone in the final version:
but still cool to make a video for WIRED.
