Motion & Sound is a motion graphics project that allowed me to explore how music could be shown through shapes and movement. Listening to Smiles Tiles by Auggie Aulinz, I created visuals of simple shapes and bright colors to convey the happy, chirpy sounds of the music. It was a fun challenge matching the movements and shapes to the beat and explore the different ways to transition as the tempo changes.
While listening to the song, I sketched out a bunch of shapes and aesthetics to start thinking of designs for the piece. I then finalized the visuals and transitions as storyboard and match it to specific sections of the song.
Exercising motion skills, color scheme through small Charettes. The short looped motion to the left is a galactic-themed collaboration where we made micro machines that became a small element of a bigger composition. Using our 30 and 60 frame loops, I created a pattern-esque final piece that represented space through abstract shapes and colors. Below is a simple transition from black to white and back to black square, created after a quick storyboard and pushing the limits of the simple shape.
