Wishing everyone a happy Fourth of July filled with all things America! P.S. I took Jake’s Hand Lettering in Motion class on Skillshare yesterday and had lots of fun learning to animate my lettering! Seriously fellow letterers you should give this a try. I’ve never animated before and now I’m addicted.

Sheesh! It’s been forever since I posted on here. Ever since the new year rolled around things have really been changing in the Bartlett household, lots and lots of changes. That’s a post for another day (I’ll try to write it sooner than later, but I probably shouldn’t promise anything). Anyway, 2015 is turning out to be our best year

Today I want to share a project my brother Aaron is working on. Watch the video to get an idea of what the project is, and then go check out the Kickstarter project for all the details. I love the way that they’re shooting as much of it practically as possible, and then animating the face after the fact. It

THE EDITOR from Inside The Edit on Vimeo. I came across this video today on Facebook. Not only does it tell the story of what a good editor actually has to do, it’s also animated beautifully!

In Motion: WWF Parallax Sequence

Jake Blog Post After Effects, Animation, In Motion, Video 1910 Views

WWF PARALLAX SEQUENCE from Make Productions on Vimeo. This video from Make Productions is unbelievable because it is made up entirely of still photos. The team painstakingly cut out all of the elements of the photos in photoshop, took them into after effects, and animated them to look like they were slow-motion video. I’ve messed around with this style of

I found a gem of an animation for you today! Instead of me talking about it, just watch it. You’ll be glad you did! Typesetter Blues from TOGETHER on Vimeo.
