Well it has been a couple months since I wrote about Motion Graphic and all the benefits of having ‘sizzle’ for your websites. I have been moonlighting in my favorite thing to do. Making movies.
Movies and Motion Graphic
Now when I mention making movies, they are not your Blockbuster IronMan stuff that you may spend your Friday or Saturday nights. This is Film Festival on a Micro scale. But hey; “You gotta start somewhere.” I am usually the 1st Assistant Director and or an Editor.
Editing Motion Graphic
With movies and a motion graphic it is used in the title only. Unless of course it was a version of the 1960’s Batman. With POW and BLAM flying into the screen used in the ‘fist to cuff’ fights, of the henchmen and the dynamic duo.
A motion graphic is a way to set the mood, or an era of a movie. Other than that, you won’t see any more other then that title I mentioned; unless they are a special effect.
IGE: Special FX: Using a 3D object that does not exist in the ‘real world’, other than in a computer graphics world. Known as CGI. Where sometimes the term CGI is convoluted with SFX. As they have the same principals/design theory.
C.G.I Motion Graphic
With CGI, we make a total world or room in CGI and then use a Green Screen to have our actors appear to be within that room or world. A great example of that would be the Blockbuster Elysium with Matt Damon. That whole ring, ships, crash, and leaving earth. Which was the Mexico Dump BTW. How to: We film a helicopter or Drone lifting off with ample loose dust from point of take off to give that dust storm a Helicopter stirs up on lift-off. Track the drone and then we add a 3D model CGI attach it to the tracked path and that covers it’s flight path to appear as though a real ship is being witnessed. A little film know how, along with motion graphic.
Motion Graphic and You
If you have a website, you probably have a graphic. If you have a GIF you have the most basic Motion Graphic. See here for the facts on Gif’s and note the similarities of GIF’s and Motion Graphic.
Many who use WordPress have the basic layout to use a Motion Graphic for their websites. If you search here on my site for green screen you will see how I made a 3D world, then placed an actor in it and made it appear like what you see on an old Comedy Central episode. Point being is NetCommercial can handle your needs. Help with your vision and grow with you.
Well see you at the movies. Next time you see a title or one of those slick little animations like a dancing cup of soda and popcorn. Think of me. Using a motion graphic and what you envision on your website.
