this is a web banner I made for Tree of Crows.
This is artificial snow I rendered in C4d with a 3d logo. I harvested the shadows from the graphic and layered everything in AfterEffects. I also changed the background from day to a night scene.
This was for the music video, “Whiteboy,” by Dave Dingwall. Directed by Marc Brodzik, Woodshop Films.
This is somewhere between rotoscoping and animation. Whatever it is, I did it for the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia’s butterfly exhibit.
I started with footage of a butterfly flapping its wings. On a frame where the entire top of the butterfly was visible, I traced it out, shape by shape in Shake using the roto shape tool. Then I tracked the wings and applied the four-point tracker to the shapes that I had traced. Once that was done, I shook off the footage node and exported the composition with the alpha channel to AfterEffects where I rendered it with motion blur.
Something my mother often warned I was doing in my childhood (walking on thin ice, aka. cruisin for a bruisin, aka. pushing it).
Here’s a video I threw together real quick.
I designed their trademark and animated it for them.
