I use squeezeme.tv to keep track of a bunch of motion graphics sites. It's pretty good.

I really wish there was a site that had more critical analysis of motion graphics work. I personally have no trouble finding cool work. I would like to see a site where other professionals dissect high end work.

This looks very powerful. I like that you can import your own 3D elements.

Stranger Than Fiction was incredibly well written.
The mograph was fantastic, but the mograph didn't make it a good story... the plotting of the action made it a good story.

Never confuse motion with action.

The mograph made it a better story. It enhances the viewers understanding of the character.

In the case of Stranger Than Fiction, I think arguing that the mograph didn't improve the story is a lot like arguing that costuming and set design don't improve a story.

. Even with Stranger than Fiction, it was more fluff than it was integral to the story.


I totally disagree. The motion graphics were a huge part of Will Ferrell's character. They were used as a method to show the workings of his mind, and emphasize his dull routine. The reason that motion graphics aren't present through the whole movie is because the character changes. They start to disappear as he begins to live a richer life.
