Troll the Ancient Gryphon-tide Carol…

Deck the forest with boughs of folly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the the blazing gryphon before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Follow me in a merry adventure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Happy Holidays from leftchannel!

motion titles: feed your creative brain

motion is a national event celebrating creativity in motion; the TED Talks of our industry if you will, and they selected us to create the opening titles for the 2013 show. They gave us the best brief possible: Do whatever you want, just make it cool – we had full creative reign. Obviously, we instantly thought of tentacles… and the concept grew from there.

Thanks to the motion staff for having full faith in us to deliver something cool in three weeks. We loved the process, love the result and absolutely loved the event. Also a very special thanks to Allen DiCenzo of Circa Music for the great sound design! Lastly, many thanks to all of the publications who helped tell our story: Motionographer, Stash, SHOOT, Computer Arts Magazine, and the many others.

MDblog

We’re super excited to have been selected to create the show open for motion 2013 in Albuquerque next month! Pretty cool stuff…

For those of you who aren’t as familiar with motion, here’s a quick rundown: It’s a four day event that brings together some of the brightest and most creative minds. It’s the TED talks of our industry. Filmed in front of a live studio audience filled with motion designers, producers, vfx artists, writers, animators, creative directors, graphic designers and illustrators, each speaker is on stage for 18 minutes sharing their unique perspective on subjects they’re passionate about. Innovative ideas that revitalize the creative muse. Check it out and maybe we will see you there!
