Practical Motion Background Workshop
Motion graphics production isn't limited to the digital world. This course takes you back into the studio to create custom motion backgrounds. Learn about lighting, staging, and filming everyday objects, which become an interesting, naturalistic footing for your motion effects. Author Rich Harrington shares techniques he uses in his own studio, RHED Pixel, to capture this footage and combine it with effects in popular postproduction tools like Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, resulting in rich, abstract backdrops for your project.

- 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.
