Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Day 1 challenge: Vacation time, part of 5-Day Mograph Challenge: Animated GIFs.
- Hello, and welcome to day one of this five day motion graphics challenge. In this challenge you'll create an animated Gif with a theme of "Vacation Time." Now what comes to mind when you hear that phrase? Try drawing from your own travel experiences and see if anything comes to mind that would make an interesting animation. If you don't travel much, think about what summer, or vacation in general, means to you. Go ahead and create a mind map as ideas come to you, and then when you're done thinking up ideas, pick the one you think would make a good animated GIF.
Be sure to use these challenges as an opportunity to try out a new style or technique, and create something good enough to add to your demo reel. The point of these challenges is to try something new, not to breeze through them. Don't let your brain take a vacation during this challenge. When you're done, be sure to share your GIF animation on social media using the hashtag #5DayMoGraph, and post it to the tumblr page at 5daymograph.tumblr.com.
