Mograph High5 // 011

I spend way too much time browsing motion graphics (mograph) on Vimeo. Although, it is a great way to stay on top of the latest trends, get inspired, and connect with other like minded artists. It's kind of mind blowing how many new animations pop up each week. Both newly posted projects and older pieces that are new to me. There's a lot to sort through and not all of the pieces are worth the time and effort. I decided to start cataloging what I find and hopefully save time for others. My goal is to post my five favorite finds each week.

Here are my favorites this week:

1.

Man Seeking Woman from Elliot Lim on Vimeo.
When I tuned in to the pilot episode for "Man Seeking Woman" I was pleasantly surprised to see this opening title sequence. The grayscale stroked shapes are such a contrast to typical show title sequences which makes it stand out.

2.

XPrize from Simon Tibbs on Vimeo.
The motion in this piece is so smooth. The subtle camera movements keep everything fluid. The characters make this so fun to watch. There's a lot of expression and character in each one.

3.

McDonald's Arch Enemies from Buck on Vimeo.
This is so fun! The music, colors, and characters all compliment each other. So glad an advertisement like this is on TV. Sidenote: McNuggets look far more appetizing as a cartoon.

4.

Alzheimer Lab from Bobby Voeten on Vimeo.
This piece feels like a 1950s educational film but with modern flair. The way the text animates on at the beginning really hooked me in. All the bubbles and fizzes in the lab are executed really well.


5.


IBM - Bones from ANIMAL on Vimeo.
There are some amazing transitions in this piece. Love how comical this is for such a technical and serious topic. Great piece all around.
