Animated history

TBT Motion Titles

I've finished my motion titles project for my tv show version of 'TodayBackThen'. I mean, it's totally ficticious right now...we'll see what happens in the future! To those who don't know much about motion graphics...I've used the still images I've created here for the site and animated them in After Effects. The sound effects were sourced from the BBC's sound effects archive. I've learned a lot from the project. 

I knew I wanted the opening to have pace…to be like a rapid-fire trip showing historical peoples and events along the way. The audience I imagine is somewhere beyond 'Horrible Histories' but not as far as a 'grown-up's' history show. It's my intention to create more work like this and aim toward producing content for museums and other educational applications.

This is a progression of my last post about animating some of my images in the galleries. I reckon this is like 'Phase 2' of the project. I've selected the frames I want to use and mark out what parts of the image would be suitable for animating. After this test, I'll be stitching the finished individual animations together and then adding sound and typography and 'stylin' it up a bit!
