SoM Holiday Card Animation 2020

Personal project - School of Motion community

  • Task: Create a :03 animation to be included in large collaborative video as part of the School of Motion community
  • Parameters: Base your animation on the theme "I got through 2020 by (blank)"
    • Use color palette provided for consistency across animation submissions
  • Inspiration: My boys really started to get into Lego leading up to the holiday's this year. Modeling a lego and making it move was a good challenge for me to expand my abilities in Cinema4D and using mograph text as a falloff parameter.

My final theme was: "I got through 2020 by building Lego."

I started by modeling a single brick, and iterating it to set up a variety of lego bricks that I could use.

Lego Bricks

Once I got the basic elements down, I moved on to laying it out and using the lego brick to drive the text. I wanted the piece to feel like a stop motion piece because building lego is a long process.

Final video execution:
