Motion Graphics – Fate/Stay Night

Kyle Grzyb, Junior

This was a project for my motion graphics class that had to do branding. We had to produce around three motion tests based on a logo or a brand, so I chose to create an animation based on each of the three main story paths in Fate Stay/Night. I enjoyed applying After Effects animations to the artwork I had made, and look forward to learning more about the program and what I can do to make even cooler animations.

Motion Graphics Kinetic Type – Unlimited Blade Works

Kyle Grzyb, Junior

This was a project for my motion graphics class that focused on the movement of typography in sync with audio. While the words are supposed to be the focal point, I really enjoyed making all the supporting artwork and animations for the rest of the frame, along with the transitions. I think that the synced text creates a cool effect and a powerful impact, and I look forward to implementing kinetic type in my future motion graphics projects.

We all got to take part in almost every portion of the film and we had a great time doing it! Includes adult language.
