Featuring works of recent grad, Alejandra Barraza of Red River College. Major in Video & Motion Graphics, and studied in Design.
We had to create a gig poster for a movie, or a tv series of our choice. We could represent the Movie/Series in anyway we saw fit, either as an illustration, photogrpahy, type based, or a combination. I chose to go with an illustrated look for the film How to Train Your Dragon 2, focusing on going for the hand drawn style at the end of the credits of the first film, and also mimicking the character Hiccup's sketches from both films.
A ten second animation, using simple, basic shapes, and have them animate to the timing of the music. Created in Adobe After Effects, I learned the basics of how to use the animation tools in the program, and learned some special effects to enhance the animation. I chose a brighter palette to mimic the feel of the upbeat audio, but also keeping it strong with some of the more defining animations that pop out.
We had to create a made-up advertisment for a Kid Robot shop opening, stating a featured artist of our choice, and a potential Dunny they would create for the grand opening. Created in Adobe Illustrator, we had to learn how to build everything for the poster in that program, using tools such as the pen tool, shapes tool, and type tool.
We had to gather up logos that would best represent ourselves as a person. Half the logos were made up to represent real things in life (the T-Rex skull for Paleontology). The other half as re-rendered versions of existing logo's (Nintendo 64's logo). We also had to work with a colour pallet, whether it'd be triadic, complimentary, analogous, or monochromatic. I went for icons and logos from things that influenced my career choice in my past, and in the present, and chose to go with a monocromatic teal/blue look (to match my logo identity).
A short cinematography piece that involves motion tracking in After Effects, taking place in a location of our choice. I chose to film and focus on a newly renovated park in my old neighborhood that my friends and I used to love going to. Now greatly improved, and a better place to be, it makes the memory of that place brighter.
A poster featuring a part of the movie that stuck out the most in our minds. I chose to draw the character Deacon, because I thought that seeing a Vampire, a being that's legend to be a terror of the night, to be quite comical and relatable. A Vampire that knits is not something you see everyday, and I too love knitting.
