I am working recently on a countdown clip for the ICF Basel church "GOTTART" conference for the 7-9 November 2014.
I was asked to make a 10 minutes countdown clip with the music of “Deadmau5” The Veldt and a own ICF Basel song called Läbe.
I was really free in topic of design and animation, wich made things also difficult.
I started with some concept sketches and thought how could I fill 10 minutes and make a intresting countdown.
I spend a lot of time finding the visual language of the frames. It started al with clean vectors and ended with an old TV-look effect, found in After Effects.
Now, that I am happy with the visual Style I am working straight forward to fill this 10 minutes. I am adding all 30 seconds a new animated element.
The fun thing about working straight forward is that there are a lot of surprises. Unexpected things are happening and when I am lucky it looks good and it fits to the main style. The frustrating thing is, that I dont know whats going to happen next: trying to add things that makes the work overloaded or takes a lot of times. But I see this as opportunity to achieve results never expected wich makes the work enjoyable.
I will keep you up to date on this project ,-)
