Word's come in from Foundation Visual Art & Design graduate (and onetime Digital Design T.A.) Todd Smith about his latest project.
Like our old pals Boca and Ryan out of Digital Design, Todd's stationed in [[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"1750","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","style":"","alt":"20080402144329_transistor1.jpg"}}]]Copenhagen, Denmark, working for Thank You Motion Graphics. For Todd, that recently meant creating a program package for MTV which has caught the attention of Motionographer.com and Feed.
"The piece, which I art directed, animated, and edited, goes by Transistor and airs Monday through Friday on MTV Denmark," writes Todd. "It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work."
"The whole thing is composed of plastic beads which were animated by hand and captured using Canon still cameras. Everything was compiled in Apple Aperture and edited together with Adobe After Effects." Because of the painstaking animation process, production took about two months.
