Experiments in tracking

17th March 2017

When we get the chance we like to try new techniques, develop our skills and see if new things work. These 2 little studio pieces are where we're honing our tracking skills (that's taking real footage and adding in animated elements) + trying to combine 2D elements in a 3D world. There's many little lighting things, animation tricks and compositing effects we're trying out here which we'll aim to carry over into our client work.

Creating Content that Moves Motion Design, Animation and 3D

Our Process

No matter what kind of motion graphics or motion design piece we are working on we have a process that we like to follow. We've designed a way we think works well and thought we'd share this with you. It gives you a little insight to what it's like to with us at Mighty Giant.
