5 Things We've Been Watching : October 2022
We love video here at PEG (obviously) and talk about it pretty much non-stop. So, we wanted to share with you five things that caught our eye, started a conversation or gave us a little inspiration over the last month.
20 Kinetic Typography Examples
Why it’s a thing: Type can tell a a story. Both in its literal words and how it is used with color, style and animation. These are all wonderful examples of how typography paired with animation can tell completely different stories and evoke completely different emotions. Just another reminder of how powerful animation can be in the storytelling process!
Why it’s a thing: This is a simple way of being able to view how the process of color correction progresses. Seeing the same clip from its RAW format to its final state in only a few seconds makes it easy for everyone to understand.
Mail Merging Motion Graphics
Why it’s a thing: This is just a baffling feat of production and organization. Seeing how many graphics (from his count a new record with 3+ options for every player, of every play type, ready for any situation = 2373 total) it takes to be ready for literally ANY moment during a game. Preparation is clearly key.
These Nameless Places
Why it’s a thing: This is just a beautiful piece all around. And we love when a video toes that like or is it an ad or isn't it? A few carefully placed logos let us know the true focus, but it doesn't detract from the overall feeling and vibe happening throughout.
Why this instrument explains Black American folk music
Why it’s a thing: As usual, Vox knocks it outta the park with their beautiful combination of video and animations. This piece uses animation to help visualize all the highly auditory elements of this video. And not only making it easier to understand for the audience, but creating a depth and interest, perfectly complimenting the beautiful video.
