Test your skills! Animate five classic elements—earth, fire, water, wind, and light/dark—in this 5-day mograph challenge.
- Hi! I'm EJ Hassenfratz and I'll be your host for this five day motion graphics challenge. By now, you've learned why doing daily challenges is important for your own personal growth as an animator. It's also a great way to create quality work that you can add to your demo real. We started with creating animated GIFs, each with a unique theme, then we went over a few animation fundamentals to help you build a solid foundation in animation, and applied those principals to animating logos in logo type.
In this next five day challenge, we'll go back to were we began and create more themed GIFs, applying the techniques you've learned from each challenge so far. But, this week, we'll have an overarching theme for our animations, the elements. In this challenge, you'll create animations based on the elements of fire, earth, water, wind, and light and dark. Now, this five day journey will be a great exercise in how you can visually depict these forces by building off of everything that you've learned up to this point.
Remember to have fun with these, and most of all, to challenge yourself. Use these challenges as an opportunity to learn a new skill or experiment with a style that you've always wanted to try. No one sees things the way you do, and no one experiences life the same way you do, so don't think that you don't have anything to bring to the table when it comes to expressing yourself creatively. You absolutely do. I look forward to seeing your creations.
