In this live presentation from NAB 2018 motion designer for MLB, DJ Stange, gives a whirlwind tour of his process for creating a game opening animation for the Orioles that is both an homage to Game of Thrones and the city of Baltimore. Stange came to motion design by way of being a Rock Musician, and wants you to know that you can do it too. In his presentation, he breaks down simple C4D techniques that when layered can create gorgeously complex finished pieces. Throughout his presentation he shares tips for idea generation, and the creative process he uses to handle the ambitious deadlines of Major League Baseball.
