ILM 2008 VFX Reel - title graphics
For this set of title/opening motion graphics, for the 2008 Industrial Light & Magic Siggraph visual effects reel, I wanted to create the feeling of opening and revealing like plants, ferns or flowers blooming. I started with linear sketches of stylized plants, petals, leafs, stems and other elements... then drew them out in illustrator and then began exploring the movements that they evoked. Then I storyboarded out sequences to connect the VFX breakdowns for the different films highlighted... Spiderwick, Speed Racer, Indiana Jones, and Iron Man. There was also a really amazing Iron Man suit demo created by the artists at ILM which I added motion graphics to.

Here are the finished transitions on their own (without the visual effects breakdowns for the ILM films). This clip has the unfinished Iron Man suit demo version unfortunately, with stand-in graphics. Sound design was by Skywalker Sound...
Here are stills from the finished animations...
The following are storyboards and sketches I used to plan out the shots and also to pitch to the client (ILM PR)...
The following are some of my concept sketches...
