Online Workshop of Animation: Motion Graphics

Friday / 11.12.2020 /  6:00pm  @ZOOM

Motion or motion graphics is an animation that creates an illusion – from movement to rotation – and is commonly used in multimedia projects in combination with sound. Motion graphics are most often played on electronic media, but it can also be played with manual or motor techniques such as thaumatrope, phenakistoscope, stroboscope, Zoetrope, and flipbook. The term distinguishes static graphics from those with transformation over time without too much defining the form itself.

Motion graphics go beyond the most commonly used methods of filming and animation. Motion graphics differ from typical animation in that they are not based solely on stories and often represent animated abstract shapes and characters, such as logos or logo elements. Although any form of experimental or abstract animation can be called motion graphics, the term more explicitly refers to animation’s commercial use and effects for video, film, TV, and interactive applications.

Ever since motion graphics first appeared on the scene, the boundary between it and perfect animation has been debated. Motion graphics is animation, but its main component is text. It is an animated graphic design. The graphics movement is a way of communicating with the viewer and adds depth to the story. Compelling graphics, along with music, can make it easier to convey messages to us. We use motion graphics to create ads, movie title sequences, videos, and to share information.

We are pleased to announce online workshops of creative computer techniques led by animator, video and multimedia artist Jože Slaček nad videographer, photographer, director, graphic designer, illustrator and producer Kristijan Robič. The workshop will provide participants with the characteristics of creative projects made using pre-recorded film or video sequences, which are translated into animated pictures. The workshop will take place via an online page, which will provide descriptions of various techniques, from recording, converting the image into strings of drawing images, synthetic and collage animation techniques.
