Added two new 2018 projects

 

Happy New Year!

2018 were a really interesting year in business. I had a lot of different kinds of projects and I want to update the site though out January (hopefully if I have time, but who knows).

I made my first book for large scale printing. It’s a handbook about art. Take a look at the page.

I made more web-animation. This time a singing symbol for the app Voisey.

Video campaign for Instagram and Facebook

Video campaign for Instagram and Facebook

I were a part of Norges Rederiforbund video campaign for Instagram and Facebook. It's called Tenk hav, or  Think Ocean and the videos tell a short story about what's happening in the Norwegian shipping business.

Were are they going with new technology and the future of shipping.

Not all are published yet, but here's a collection of videos posted on Instagram.

We made a video template for After Effects that made it easier to grind through videos with speed. Often it's more time consuming just finding the right footage that simply represent the message.

I guess these kind of jobs are sought after.

What's your campaign story?

Lottie - The new way of doing web and app animation

 

Sometimes you get to try a technique that changes the way you ser new possibilities.

This time it's Lottie. A converter tool created by Airbnb. Yes, that Airbnb.

You can create your animations in After Effects, and by keeping it to simple shapes, masks and keyframes for the animation (no effects supported).

It uses the Json creator tool called Bodymovin that are pluged into After Effects, and Lottie is on the other end handling the app part.

I used it on the Vibble app opening animation. A simple logo reveal for the easy DJing app.

The system have some huge limitations that I've came across . Like inverted mask. That's a no go.
In the logo reveal case I needed subtracting forms, but that didn't work, and I ended making tinytiny bridges that connects the different part, and create one single form. This isn't noticeable for the viewer, but adds an extra step to the process. If possible use layered shapes that are overlapping with it's own fill.

So it's early days, but it's new possibilities on the horizon. And the file sizes are tiiiiny. Like 9 kb for this animation. 

You can get the Vibble app in the iOS app store.
