The Motion Weekly is a showcase of awe-inspiring short films, animation and motion graphic works from around the web. Some pieces featured have been created by professional studios, while others may be personal works. May this weekly segment serve to inspire you.
Though my original goal with this segment was to specifically highlight motion graphics and animated short films, it had evolved to also showcase incredible live-action, outstanding cinematography, and wicked cool experimental works. It's all motion, it's all inspiring. So, take the time to kick back and have a look at some fantastic work being produced out there. And, if you like what you see in this segment, please share it.
This is Motion Graphics!
An excellent piece describing what Motion Graphics is all about. Also, be sure to check out the Behance gallery here.
Darlingside - White Horses
I recently became enamored with the music of Darlingside. Their original songs and voices are incredible. The music video for 'White Horses' from their new album is beautifully done, with continuous motion and changing scenery.
Darlingside's "White Horses" and full-length album 'Birds Say' available here:
Animator/Director: Abraham Dieckman
Producer: Timothy Hahn
By the River - An Animated Bird Guide
A great example of what motion graphics is about.
I made a short animation for kids to help them identify birds. This film is set by the river. We see a BLACKBIRD, SWALLOWS, a KINGFISHER, SWIFTS and a pair of GOLDFINCHES.

Egg Mcmuffin - Director's Cut
This piece is pure motion eye-candy. It is, indeed, 'oddly satisfying.'
To promote Mcdonald's Egg McMuffin, I worked with TBWA, on a campaign consisting of 15 'oddly satisfying gifs. This poject shows all my graphical search, as a director's cut.
Check the behance for some making of :)
