Frankly Lia Photoclip

This is a photo slide show for my friend's wedding. I want to make a different slide show. So I decided to break some of the photos into little parts and animate them. Dealt with masking a lot xD but it was fun :D

I did everything on AE. Except for the opening scene..done on Lightwave..

The result..well, pretty satisfying :)

As Above So Below

This time, the purpose is to make the first two spreads of the story book titled "As Above So Below". I didn't fully use Illustrator for this assignment. Did the painting on Photoshop, and then do the typos on Illustrator :)

Didn't count the hours..but I'm pretty satisfied.

Feel free to comment :)

Stop Men's Violence Against Women Campaign

Just a random "studio" photography attempt.. We were shooting an advertisement for an anti-smoking campaign, and the woman who we shoot with suggested us to take some picture for her friend who is a public speaker about this movement. I tried to experiment with side lighting to give the dramatic atmosphere, and then...I used the grunge texture and different color tone for each of the picture, and of course, the name and the country where we are from. It gives the "international" feel on it ahahahaha Well, pretty satisfied for a "just for fun" project.

And here's the movement's link :

Billy the Bear Storybook Page

"Billy the Bear cried because it was raining outside and he couldn't play..
..but he remembered once an old friend told him..
..he still could smile even though it's raining outside..

..and then, Billy the Bear realized that being happy is a decision."

Haha just a random painting in a gloomy morning..trying to mimic a children story book while trying new inking style :) spent 2.5 hours to finish this.

It turned out pretty good, I guess..I'm pretty satisfied..

Dawn - The Beginning

“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.” (anonymous)

The random piece of the day :)
Inspired by the starting spring..and Owl City's Vanilla Twilight..

Wanted to portray the dawn - beginning of the day in a ruin - somewhere :)
I tried to use the sweet - vanilla-ish - romantic color combination to evoke the warm evoke the new hope of the coming day.

I think it was pretty successful..I really like the inking style..just my personal preference though..and also the paper texture! It becomes more..sketchy..haha

Feel free to comment :)

Flash Interactive - Thematic Typography

The purpose of this assignment is to make an interactive flash movie using startDrag and the previous thematic typography design. So in the animation, I showed the transformation from the ORIGINAL - THEMED - FULL COMPOSITE. Just move the mouse across the box to reveal the transformation. I also put 3 modes in this movie, so the viewer can control which transformation mode he/she wants to see. To change the mode, just click inside the black box.

Using the startDrag command is easy, but the challenge is to make some transformation modes available. At first, I tried to put multiple masks with multiple startDrag commands..which was...a total failure..haha I later found out that startDrag can control one mask at a time only. So I finally decided to make some transformation modes rather than multiple transformations at once. After playing with the script for awhile, finally I found the way to do it XD

Well, I'm satisfied with the result because I'm not so good with codes..haha

You can view the animation here .

P.S. The link is updated and works! :)
