  4. Hey guys! I just finished this new 3d animated side project and thought about sending it over for y'all to take a look at :) I had a lot of fun putting it together! I’m a little scared sending it out into the world but, I thought I would give it a go and see what happens. That’s how everyone learns right? So, hopefully you have the time to take a look at it. Thanks for your time! Vimeo link: https://vimeo.com/315812004 Full project link: https://www.behance.net/gallery/75969173/BEYOND Project Details: Beyond is a side project I created to push myself creatively. I actually don’t really like sci-fi, or know too much about DC or the Marvel universe. Every year, I try to give myself one large side project to improve technically as well as in my storytelling skills. I saw that creating something from a source that already exists while using a look and feel I don’t feel comfortable using as a huge challenge. After some research and seeing the cool stuff people where doing online, I remember how much I loved the animated series Batman Beyond as a kid. That was the spark that led me to think, what if I created a “fake” trailer for a modern take on Batman Beyond while using subtle indications from the show? It was definitely challenging but with some small personal victories along the ride :) I hope you enjoy my work as much as I had creating and diving into this world!

  5. Hello everyone, I've been trying to create an animation of shapes stacking up and balancing on top of each other for a couple days now, but I just can't get it to work. I've tried Newton and somewhat tried to keyframe it, but I have no clue on how to do it. Does anyone know how I should go about this? An example of what I'm trying to create (at around 00:25):

  8. Do you have a body of work yet? The freelancers I hire, I hire based off of their reel. I feel like your work is the price of entry. For example, if you go to my Utah Video Productions website you can see the type of work I do. What I'm getting at is, if someone was looking for a company in Utah that did Video work and they landed on my site they could see. If what I do isn't the type of work they are looking for chances are they would move along.

  12. Hi my name is Alonzo Nelson. I'm trying to start up my career as a freelance Motion Designer/Video Editor. I've been doing mostly local video editing work here in NYC using Premiere Pro CC 2018/19 but it was not on a professional level just on a "handshake" deal with no contracts or invoices and I want to start making myself into a professional Motion Graphics Designer. I use mostly After Effects & Premiere Pro (both 2018/19) for the projects and gigs I get. My goal by the end of 2019 is to have a website showcasing my work, a demo reel (with mostly internet tutorials lol) and a social media presence to market myself. I'm in the real early beginning stages of this endeavor I've been doing a lot of research this month watching Roberto Blake videos on YouTube, taking notes on how to start a side business, reading blogs on PremiumBeat & Motion Array, etc. I have a primary job with a hectic schedule, I don't get paid much but I do have health, dental & a 401K so that's not an issue. My goal is to start off small with a steady amount of clients and when I feel the business is in a good position I can reduce my hours at my regular job and put in more hours on this. My first priority is to buy a new work station STRICTLY for the purpose of creative work. I like the Apple ecosystem so I prefer to stay in that lane and not go PC. Here are the specs on my current work station: 13-inch, Mid 2012 MacBook Pro2.5 GHz Intel Core i516 GB 1600 MHz DDR3Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB1 TB SSD storage I've been doing some research on the Mac Mini 2018 over the last 2 weeks and I'm looking to buy it in the future. I use most of the programs in Adobe Creative Cloud but I mainly use After Effects 2018/19 & Premiere Pro 2018/19 is a close second. Here are the specs I want to get for the Mac Mini 2018: 3.2GHz 6‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz) 8GB 2666MHz DDR4 Intel UHD Graphics 630 1TB SSD storage 10 Gigabit Ethernet What do you think? Is this enough for a guy like me who is saving money and just getting started trying to become a professional Motion Designer/Video Editor? Also how much do I start charging since I'm just starting out? Revisions? Even though I was doing local video editing work unprofessionally how do I determine how much revisions is too much? Do I charge a flat rate or hourly? Contracts, Invoices, Taxes, business bank accounts, etc I have so many questions and did a lot of research up to this point I'm nervous & excited to start this journey but I want to do it right any advice for me? Thanks in advance to reading this long message...

    The new iMac Pro rocks in my opinion. You don't need to max it out. I have a mid-level iMac Pro and it handles 8k footage for editing really well. AE moves much faster than my old computer as well. Utah Video Productions

    Opinions on Schooling

    No one cares if you went to school unless you are a teacher or work for the government. Everyone cares about your reel and experience. If you can go to college for free I say go. If you are going to drown in debt for it I would say away. I think you are way better off doing an internship from a company you highly respect. You will can some crazy skills and contacts. Best of luck, Utah Video Productions
  18. I think DG gave you a good range, keeping in mind people charge even more then what he suggested. I highly recommend you check out a YouTube channel called the futur. It is about the business of design and focuses on helping you charge even more for your work. You can see it here: The Futur Utah Video Productions

    Hello, I am new to mograph and motion graphics, but have been a graphic designer for 14 yrs. I would love some recommendations on people to follow for inspiration and tutorial. And really just looking to make new contacts and possible mograph friends. I look forward to being a contributor to the forum. Thanks, Gee
  23. I have only used it to build templates for Premiere and find it to be clunky, limited and slow. Often have problems importing the templates after building them as well. This is just based off using it for one project with limited problem solving so others might have more success. I can see the potential but found it lacklustre. - Using AE 2018
