Create a visually stimulating 30 second video that has you wanting to watch it over and over again through a series of looping animations. An opening or closing title that has animation in some form (Camera move, animating on/off, objects animating within it) must be included as well. Type choices need to be thought out and feel cohesive with the rest of the animation. The videos must emphasize movement in unique satisfying ways. Abstracted machines, sophisticated/smart animation, and visually stimulating loops are prime examples.
