ITLG Young Innovators 2014 – Introduction

This post is to show my process on how I helped developing a 3 minute kinetic/motion graphic animation under a strict deadline (6 days).

There were 2 of us working on this project:
– Mark Luna [me] – Motion Graphics
– Ben Murphy – Illustrations > (click here to see Ben’s work)

I started production on the animation on tuesday afternoon, and finished on wedesday midnight; then I began finalising the video on thursday.

Processes:

– Structuring an appropriate story in an hour or two.
– Coming up with a storyboard in an hour or two, or three.
– Listing all the assets necessary for the animation in an hour.
– Creating/collecting all the assets on the assets list before wednesday morning.
– Developing an extremely rough version of the video by wednesday midnight.
– Finilising the video with the selected audio by thursday.

Right after I finished storyboarding the introduction, I picked out the music. The song is called “Graves” by a band called ‘The Color and Sound’.

This was the result.

Logo Variations For The CRAIC Society

The mini story of how CRAIC was born.

Last year, I was part of a somewhat gaming society in college. The branch of the society I was part of was pretty much neglected by the main branch. After disputes over the summer about new plans for the gaming society, me and a couple friends decided not to go back. As a result, last month, we decided to make a new college society; our own society. We called it, ‘Clonmel Recreational Activities and Informational Society’ or abbreviated to CRAIC. Craic in which is an Irish term for having fun. See what we did there…

As a committee member of this society it is my job to design the graphics for the society. I’m basically the ‘graphics guy’. As being the “graphics guy”, I had to design a logo for the society. This right here was my initial design after which we picked a final iteration. Apparently one of these designs look “nazi-ish” but hey, to each his own. 🙂

Wanna Know How I Got These Scars?

‘The Joker’ has recently become one of my favourite villains of all time. I recently read ‘The Killing Joke’ and saw some awesome art on it. So as an ode to the Joker, I decided to re-do two of the images on the comic.

Both of these took me AGES to finish so you bastards better like it! 😀 Both were originally illustrated by Brian Bolland.

“My father was a drinker and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her laughing while he does it. He turns to me and he says, “why so serious”. He comes at me with the knife, “why so serious!?” Sticks the blade in my mouth, “let’s put a smile on that face”. And… why so serious.” 

My favourite ‘scars’ story.
