    Motion Graphics Principles

    @mo_mograph1 there are plenty of places to learn. Go to a bookstore to start (assuming there's one still open!). Check out anything you can find on the principles and fundamentals. Take some screen grab videos of animation that you like, and break it down and study the speed, timing and design. Some youtube channels: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR4oFFjKQKHj_fCOkBLH61w https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgFGxWhhczNhEMeygMuwNqQ EJ's stuff - a bit intermediate but still some of the best of course: http://eyedesyn.com Check out Carey Smith's (free and/or paid) lessons: http://www.division05.com Probably worth checking out the archives of Andrew Kramer for VFX and motion graphics: http://videocopilot.net

    Opinions on Schooling

    I think everyone should go to college, but an art school like SCAD or Full Sail seems like a rip off. By the way, Ivy league schools seem like a rip off too. I'd still suggest getting a degree of some sort, just not a motion graphics degree. Echoing Levante and Dave here to an extent, but having a broad education is really important, not for the piece of paper, but for how it helps you see the world and your place in it. Community college for general ed and then transferring to a state school for your BA is still relatively inexpensive, at least here in California. If you work while going to school you can graduate with little to no debt.

    pain in the ass. 0-1 visa is the best option if you can swing it. Need like publications in magazines, or something official looking.sounding and a bunch of other stuff. Otherwise you are most likely looking at getting an H-1, which you need a full time job sponsor for, and there is a limit per year of h1's so its a bit of a luck thing. If by chance you are australian, you have an E-3 visa, which is like the h-1, but there is a bunch more of them. In all these visa's you need to have a degree, or like 10 years of demonstratable work experience.

    Opinions on Schooling

    Maybe a bit late on this but I would skip the degree. In the long run almost no one cares and debt can get racked up quickly. I'm not saying don't educate yourself in the field, but there are so many options today. I would start with something like Pluralsight or Lynda to get the core software up and running if you're not familiar with it. It's hard to make a good idea come to life if you can't navigate the tools (or know what tool to use). From there look at something like School of Motion for more in depth dives into something you feel like you are missing or want to learn better. For conceptual stuff go to http://www.division05.com/. Watch all the freebies and buy the rest, like today. Then watch and rewatch as you learn and grow.

    Just thinking about it lately, does anyone know thats involve in getting visa for states to work in motion graphic? I work in London currently, freelance. thought it might be a change of scene. graham(Irish).

    A Student's Quick Mographs

    So I've created four mographs so far, I intend on making a series of quick things with the goal of getting used to the mechanics of rigging characters and just allow myself to experiment and play more. The flamingo mograph I looked at how to work with water in animations as well as the shading styles. I was also aware of the graphic design aspect of it. The odd 'death deer creature' is just a play on creating strange fictional characters (plus I've been aching to make something with antlers and a globe), i used the noise shading again because i had SO MUCH fun with it, but i also added some photoshop textures in the back. In the deer's behavior i looked at how i can communicate an easily startled, cautious creature who then calms down realising there is no threat. The Giraffe was an experiment of an effect I've been using a lot lately and I was simply curious to see what it would look like to have some kind of effect over a moving character. The fish was simply my first attempt at cell animation. I'd love some feedback as the main goal of this series is just to improve on something with each mograph, I'm also open to suggestions.
  15. Interesting topic on brograph slack, here is summary: -Real question, can you model a commercial product and sell it on turbo squid? Like that feels illegal. Or would you just have to make it similar but not exact? #notalawyer -well things like a bmw car or nike shoe comes with a disclaimer "editorial use only" which basically covers the turbosquid uploader if you get pwned by the company commercial products depend on the company, some are fine with it, some are not. john deer for example are notoriously litigious, like they go after everyone who makes a green tractor with yellow wheels. and i mean EVERYONE! like they have people googling the word "tractor" all day i think its leaning on stock photography laws. for example... you could have a photo of a celebrity smashing an apple product because it was a news event being reported. the paparazzi who got it gets paid by the publisher. But... Microsoft couldn't also license the photo, slap some copy on it, and then turn it into an ad its not about where it comes from. Its how its used by saying "for editorial use" the onus is put on the person paying for it ...even if the creater makes mint But seriously, check out other 3d model market places, like cgtrader, flipped normals and stuff. Turbosquid, takes more than half the profits from the authors.. its a bit of a racket.. also google authors name, sometimes they sell the same thing through their personal website for cheaper.

    Motion Graphics Principles

    Hello all, I'm new to this forum and somewhat new to motion graphics. I have mainly been a print/web designer the last several years and I've been currently learning Premiere and After Effects. I wondered if anyone could share resources on the fundamental principles of motion design in the form of books, sites, tutorials, cheap/free online courses etc. I can't afford to return to school full-time so I'm hoping to train myself on this topic. Also, I know Lynda.com is decent for software knowledge but I'm curious if there are other resources out there of good quality for After Effects and Cinema 4D? Thank you for reading.

    A Binary Black Hole is a system consisting of two black holes in close orbit around each other. Like black holes themselves, binary black holes are often divided into stellar binary black holes, formed either as remnants of high-mass binary star systems or by dynamic processes and mutual capture, and binary supermassive black holes believed to be a result of galactic mergers.

    Little Mograph I recently created, CC welcome:)

    looks great! followed you on insta :)) not sure what to critique, what was the goal of the piece? Did it have a message to deliver? The render looks nice, materials are great, lighting is great, animation is smooth. :)))
  26. Hi everyone, three months ago I started to use Cinema4d for my 3D work and decided to do some small Motion Design projects to get better with it. So I‘m fairly new to this type of stuff and would love to get some comments and critique on my latest approach. If you‘re interested, you can find more of my stuff on my Instagram Account: http://www.instagram.com/dennis.rosenau.3d/

    We're back!! Now what?

    Hey there! So glad this is back. Would love to see useful info from Slack on here as well as reel reviews, maybe tips and tricks page, not sure but happy to start contributing again. Love me some slack but stinks you can go back and search. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
