despite being in German, and not being able to understand any of this animation at all. There are some techniques in this video that give a really professional finish to the video, such as the use very slight movements after something has moved to give it a more natural feel.

Not the most technical or innovative of works but relevant to my subject matter and fits quite well with the song, transitions are Ok and movement is too, if not a little fast. Hopefully the three dimensional element of my title sequence will give it a little more of an aesthetic edge.
Imagery I think similar in colour etc to those I've used in my animation, however these are images of space and not guitarists under live lighting conditions. Nice use of z-space and fog/cloud like effects, something I've also included in mine.
Bizerte Book and packaging
Some interesting packaging design that follows an aesthetic used for a book cover from the same project. Nice use of visual consistency and a very strong contemporary feel to the design. Feel this could be a nice direction for my packaging, keeping it contemporary and bold, like the type used throughout my motion graphics.
Here is a video that I think is from last years second years and it contains some really nice imagery and techniques. One of the techniques I was specifically looking at one technique used where a circle is formed from particles and there's movement in the particles etc. This was something I was interested in for my silent movie brief for the word disperese, however it relates as a video to my top ten sequence.

Fairly complicated animation however it come across as fairly simple, the aesthetic is also one of simple type and minimal illustrations that come together to create the final piece. Really well produced video, with natural feel to the movements of the type etc.
Really nice animation, making use of a really simple montage like aesthetic and very basic movement, coming together to create something really effective. I think the style it's done in adds to the humorous element of the video. Although not a style of animation I'll use it's something to take into account. A different way of achieving a similar thing.
