While at Arts+Labor, I had the opportunity to create the motion graphics that served as backdrop to the hours-long celebratory event, the 34th annual Austin Music Awards, attended by a crowd of hundreds. 

The parts of the show package for which I was responsible were:
The show opener, which was also used as a promotional video online ahead of the event.
20+ loops, including individualized, theme-adhering winner plates

Diving into this project, the most important element - the theme - was already fleshed out in the poster designed by the the wonderful folks over at studio Eye Like Design. You can check their post on it here: https://eyelikedesign.com/work/austin-music-awards/

Luckily, the gorgeous poster provided a rich collection of elements around which a solid animation concept developed organically. Before I even knew it, my explorations in After Effects began to breathe life and motion into the poster itself, just as I had hoped!

The challenge was to complete ALL of the show graphics in a limited amount of time, but also infuse the clips with the excitement that came with this huge night of honoring local musicians!
