- Hi. My name's Rich Harrington, and toady I'll be sharing some techniques that I use in my studio, RHED Pixel. We do a lot of motion graphics work, however, we're big fans at our studio of integrating organic and natural elements. Now, before you turn off the channel and say I'm not a motion graphics person, this is for just about anybody, photographers, motion graphic artists, video editors, those of you looking just for a fun project for a rainy afternoon or the day the client calls and cancels the job. What we're going to do today is take a look at using cameras to capture footage plates and then we're going to combine that with a little bit of post-production using popular software tools to make rich, abstract backdrops.
Now, you could use these for a wide range of projects. It's totally up to you how you implement it, but the whole thing is a lot of fun. So, thanks for joining me, and let's start to explore the process.
