Motion Weekly 38

Dec 10, 2019 at 09:04 pm by nickcharles

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.

TRAVEL OREGON 2019 "Only Slightly (More) Exaggerated"

The first film this week is a fantastic piece from Psyop for Travel Oregon. Make sure to watch this incredible short full-screen, and check out the full story here.

A stunning animated short film from Hue & Cry. Mesmerizing from start to finish, this is a must-see. Be sure to check out the home page for more on the story and a look behind the scenes here.

A despairing man’s life changes when a moth burrows into his ear, setting off a series of visions that drive him forward into the adventure of his life.
