Smashing Magazine have put together yet another amazing trawl of motion graphics. This is a great reference for students, especially for my third year Visual Communication students who will be working on a title sequence project for IADT undergraduate films in March 2009. We have worked on this project every year for the last five years with increasing success and I hope to update the our programme website with a ‘best of’ compilation of the students work shortly. It is possible to view some of the students work on their individual portfolio websites here.
This video backdrop for Massive Attack was created by United Visual Artists. Its MA’s most explicitly political piece yet and includes references to rendition flight numbers etc. The message is both visually and semantically powerful, and expertly sychronised to the music.
