Beautiful Motion Design Work for TEDx Sydney Titles

Ad

Scott Geersen shared a beautiful motion design project on his Vimeo and Behance pages. It's the TEDx Sydney Titles and it features some quite awesome 3D and real scenes, which is one or the other I cannot say based on the video because everything is just too real. The theme of this year's event was "unconventional". To zig when others zag, to think outside the box, to go against the flow, break free from the status quo, make one's own luck, and find new paths. The idea of unconventionality is illustrated using playful animation of simple geometric shapes - a cube, sphere, and pyramid - in photoreal, stop motion style 3D. Enough talk, check out the video and also some stills below.

Motion Design

Unconventional:  "Not conventional, not bound by rule or precedent, different from what is usual, unorthodox."

Project description

To be unconventional is to zig when others zag, to think outside the box, to go against the flow, break free from the status quo, make one's own luck, and find new paths. Being unconventional often results in disruption and innovation - and in ideas worth spreading.

As a silver partner, it was an honour for Substance to contribute to the record-breaking event with opening titles, session IDs, online stings, speaker announcements, and digital signage, across formats from 2k-6k.

TEDxSydney is the leading platform for the propagation of Australian ideas, creativity and innovation to the rest of the world, and one of the largest TEDx events in the world. This year TEDx Sydney was held in June at the ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour, allowing a record number of attendees into the TEDxSydney community.
