Here's that snow footage again. This time I've added some experimental 'noodling' to it. All sorts of After Effects fun here; tracking the snowflakes then using AE scripting to drive the animation and create the 'musical' sound track. There's a little bit of coding here generating the tones from the tracking co-ordinates.

Many posts ago here I wrote about making some simple 3D letters from card. Well, I've now made a video showing how this is done in more detail.
The video demonstrates how to use Adobe Illustrator to create the letter templates, then the cutting, scoring, folding and gluing process.
I hope some readers and viewers of the video find it useful.

Well it doesn't snow very often here in the London suburbs. So when it does happen, I shoot a little test film. Take a little break from your busy day and enjoy ... 'Snowmotion'. Shot with Panasonic GH4 camera, Lumix 35-100mm f2.8 lens, 1920x1080 @ 96 fps.

My old friend Marcus Hearn has directed a new feature length documentary all about Hammer Horror films from the late60s/early70s. Fans of these classic movies should definitely look out for "Hammer Horror the Warner Bros Years" coming soon. I had great fun providing some motion graphics for this in a somewhat retro styley adding plenty of film weave, light leaks and dodgy 'opticals', all rendered in a suitably diabolic palette of red and black of course .... Mwa ha ha. Taste ze trailer here ...
