Since the start of 2020, I have been booked by Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to cover all their motion design needs. This time, I had the opportunity to work with editors on tribute videos dedicated to influential film critic and historian Leonard Maltin, and renowned animator Floyd Norman. The best part about working with TCM is the creative freedom they gave you. Most of the time, you are supplied with a reference of what editors want in content, timing and layout. My job is to translate what they have in mind into aesthetically pleasing motion design pieces.
LEONARD MALTIN TRIBUTE
For the Maltin tribute, I was working with lots of photo assets and scans, compositing and animating into animations that enhances the tribute video’s narration.
FLOYD NORMAN TRIBUTE
The most exciting part about this tribute video is accidentally designing a faux sketch reveal using the sin expression and the effect “Roughen edges”. Though it was not used in the final video due to the duration of the shots , I felt a breakthrough in this experiment.
Below these experiments are sketches from iconic Disney and Pixar movies as well as Norman’s caricatures of his office at Disney.
