They motion graphic is based on Stephen Burt’s speech on poetry from TED. It uses a light color pallet of greens and browns with a minimalistic animation approach with sparse text elements. The reason for font choice of “Gurmukhi Sangam MN” is to keep the clean simplistic look in using a sans serif font.
The video Noise & Silence is is based on cultural trends to provide the theme that is Silence vs Noise. The initial noise invades the residents of someones quiet space causing them to move to another space. The noise grows with drastic color changes and diagonals to emphasize a cluttered and overwhelming experience in contrast to the room. The initial shots of the room are conversely flat and simplistic in order to capture the overall theme of Silence vs Noise.
A storyboard for the visuals based on the ideological movements of silence and noise as well as divine living. The shots within the main characters room will be mainly consist of flat space and minimalism to emphasize the limited items of interest in a quiet setting. When the main character leaves the silent interior space to go to find something for his room, there is an emphasis an movement and more three-dimensional shots to show depth of a very busy space.

This exercise is practice using transforming masks to create a blur and mosaic effect with face tracking and the pen tool to outline the affected areas. The title sequence uses a transforming mask with a duplicate layer composited to follow a boot as the title “Shopwork” is revealed behind the footstep. In addition to masking the boot, the text is also masked up to the edge of the boot to follow with a transformation as well.
A video of that uses the noise feature to manipulate the different effects on the background. An initial noise animation if created initially with contrasting black and white mosaic effects. The animation is then reused as a mask to filter other effects through to create a glitching look.
In this short exercise, I experimented with using keyframes to alter the position, opacity, and rotation of text. After creating the animations, by alternating the values of the text properties, I saved the animation as a custom preset to be used on other objects.
