If I’m being honest, Capstone hasn’t been getting much love lately. Twin Stripe took up a lot of time during the first part of the semester and that’s a good thing because the new issue turned out great. I am so proud of what Katie and I created, but now it’s time to buckle down. There’s only five weeks left before graduation and it’s time to put my nose to the grind stone.
So here’s what’s got to happen in the next five weeks: finishing up my portfolio (only a couple of tweaks left), creating my motion typography pieces and creating a website to contain them. Yesterday I began by researching and re-watching some awesome motion typography pieces to get inspired. Afterwards, I listened to some of the great audio I recorded at the performances with the Zoom. Then it was time to start sketching my first piece, you can see the progress below. With the addition of a new Lynda After Effects tutorial to refresh my memory, I have all the tools I need. Now I’ve got to get working.
