This is an excerpt from the full video.
Specimen is an animation I made for a modern design shop in downtown Raleigh. I was asked to create an ambient moving visual that patrons could enjoy while they browsed through the store. The installation opened on the the first Friday of December and was on display throughout the rest of the month.
"Using a combination of macro photography, texture mapping, and 3D animation, 'Specimen' celebrates some of the intricacies that can be found during autumn in North Carolina. All leaves were gathered in front of Tupper's home in Raleigh with the help of his daughter, Lucy." ~ Port of Raleigh
I'm a visual designer, sort of. I specialize in 3D motion design, but leaving my comfort zone and learning new skills is my passion. Throughout my career I've found myself working on a range of different projects like creating an employment branding strategy for a global brand to filming medieval vikings in the snowy mountains of Utah.
These days, I'm busy hanging out with my daughter and making animations from my home studio in Raleigh, North Carolina.
