The BassAwards are back.  As this is their fourth year – you can’t really say they are newcomers to the motion design awards scene anymore – and considering by their latest judging panel the stakes are getting higher…
For those of you who have not entered before the BassAwards are a truly International Motion Graphics, Animation and Broadcast Design awards body.  Why not have a look at last year’s winners? Continue reading “BassAwards 2016 Call For Entries” »

Finally,  I’ve finished my self imposed exile into a darkened room with only the Bassawards judging platform for company and come out the other side!  It’s always a long process, but I was honoured to have been asked on behalf of dotmogo to judge all the entries.  As expected a huge variety of styles and ideas – mostly to a high standard.

Here’s a special post showcasing the Gold winners of this motion graphics, animation and broadcast design awards.  That’s not to say that there wasn’t a lot of other very interesting work to see from around the globe, in those that did not win.  The best thing to do is go to the Bassawards website winner’s page and have a look at as many of the other pieces as you can.

I thought I would spread the love by posting the entire list of Promax UK 2013 winners. We’re pleased to see that a lot of the entries that we picked out for highlighting in our Promax Nominations Post went on to win prizes – well done all.  The video above was the third winner in the best ident category – “Supermarket” for the 4seven channel.  If any of the judges are reading this it would be great to now some of the thinking that was behind picking any of the winners…

Although Promax plays a big part in celebrating motion design and animation on TV, there are still many many great pieces of work that don’t get entered here.  Also I think its a shame that we have to wait for one big burst of activity once a year to see everything.  How about a Promax Vimeo or Youtube channel that people can post on to all year round, and still have the competition once a year?  That way we could have a place where people can see the long list over a period of time, rather than try and watch everything over a couple of weeks in November…  Just a thought…

Firstly – I just want to say – I love this! The textures, the mystery and the alien aquatic feel – add it to a decent script and you could easily be in Prometheus or Alien territory.   I had a chat with Jordi Pages – one of the director/animators behind this to find out what the hell it was about…

It turns out that the Playgrounds Audiovisual Arts Festival came to him to ask him to create the title sequence for their festival.  there was no particular brief – they just said “be creative” The only constraint was time.   Jordi called in some great collaborators – Gabor Ekes and Markos Kay  and they set off armed with some very subjective research into “playgrounds” and a Dropbox folder between them.
