Eternal Sunshine of the Teaser Trailer

This was done as a final project for my motion graphics class. We were tasked to make a teaser trailer for a film of our choice without any original footage from the film. I chose Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Done with Adobe After Effects and Boujou. Music from the OST. Image of Clementine from the motion picture. Background footage shot with my LX3. In case you’re wondering, the words on her face are quotes from Joel and Clementine in the film. Wanted to try something experimental.

My motion graphics class is having a screening tomorrow (14th April) at the ADM Auditorium at 7pm. See you there!

These are concept art for our final year project. Done in photoshop. Character designs by groupmate Gavin Tan. Paintings by me. Rushed them out in one night. Loads more to go!

The Nightmare

Another piece done for Graphic Storytelling class with Sonny Liew. We had 3 weeks to do this, but as always, I ended up rushing it the night before class. I told myself to stop doing that but somehow I still do. It’s a simple piece. We were asked to do something about a nightmare or the worst situation you can imagine yourself to be in. I thought that being dead while you’re still alive was a pretty crappy situation to be in. Second page after the break.

First Attempt at Matchmoving

I thought I had some free time, so I attempted to learn something I’ve always thought was very cool: matchmoving. Turns out a simple matchmove like the one above was quite easy, with Maya Live and a Youtube tutorial at hand. The tough part was making it look seamless when compositing in After Effects. As you can see, I have yet to master that aspect. The live plate was shot using my beloved Panasonic LX3, starring Zhiwei, my cafe shift partner. Ok time to get back to my real work.

Mmmm.. Coffee..
