Krazed Wireless Gaming Mouse is an over-the-top parody of modern gaming mouses made to promote my new line of services for high-end motion graphics for commercials and ads, which are on sale for the time being.
The idea behind this parody commercial was to make it fun and humorous, rather than take a fake product too seriously and make it boring to watch for those not really interested in gaming items.
Ancient Egypt has always been a subject that fascinated me deeply. The dark corridors of the great pyramid, full of mysticism and mystery… So why not make an After Effects credits template based on it? This is how Dark Temple came to be. And it wasn’t exactly a walk in the park either. Rendering this puppy took ages and I wasn’t even able to do so in its full capacity. Should I’ve done that, this render probably would’ve taken close to a month. And that’s largely due to the fact that the texture maps were massive and the model of the pyramid corridors was huge.
Now, putting this together as an After Effects credits template wasn’t an easy feat either. Many challenges had to be overcome and the biggest one was the fact that the sites that host my templates have a 4 gigabyte limit. This template, in its infancy was 6. So I had to optimize the ever-living daylights out of this thing while still maintaining it customizable and interactive, while still keeping the same quality.
Now, speaking of customization, you have up to 25 taglines/messages that you can change, plus you can change the color of the text, logo and runes on the walls, too. Now, you don’t HAVE to use taglines or text, you can put ANYTHING you want to in those placeholders.
The music for this After Effects credits template is an oldie but goodie in my personal library, called Apocalyptic Genesis, which is a salsa-electro fusion, which I thought would look fantastic here despite the fact that it doesn’t fit all too well with the whole Egyptian theme.
This nifty little video is the motion graphics logo intro for a comic company called Splotch Comics (Visit them at SplotchComics.com). I was contacted not too long ago by the owner to make an intro for their YouTube channel and after a bit of discussion and idea throwing of how the animation should look, I came up with the above design. This intro was made using Element 3D and Adobe Photoshop and was relatively simple, so no fluid simulation was involved. So how did I achieve that cool green splat? Well, the answer to this conundrum was an animated normal map combined with stock footage of a blood splat colorized to match the color of the logo splat. It’s a relatively low-tech solution to a complex problem but the results speak for themselves. No curve manipulation was employed either, this was the result of cleverly using lights to light up the scene, making the shadows blue-ish with a fill light and the highlights a pale yellow with a key light. The final result is a cool-looking motion graphics logo intro made on a budget.
