Having recently been to see and very much enjoy Hayseed Dixie deliver their top brand of Rockgrass I started to think about how I would animate their logo. Its not a real project, just something created for fun, I took their 2D flat logo and trying to remain loyal re-worked this as a piece of 3D and outputted this as an animated gif.
I've just added a new category "animated GIFS" to the site due to the increased demand by clients. I've been aiming to create quick animations when I have some rendering time to kill, the majority are set as 50 frame looping animation but this is just a self imposed restriction.
I'll be adding more to this category on a regular basis and even providing breakdowns on my blog, but until then have a wander and enjoy the gift of an animated gif.
This was a great project to work on, taking a strong narrative and working this into some flat artwork. The animation was all accomplished in After Effects. There were dozens of characters to animation, some were simple walk cycles others were more involved and interactive with elements within the scene. Click here to see the project breakdown
I particularly like the voice by Christopher Timothy of All Creatures Great and Small fame, although can't take any credit for choosing him.
