Every year I am asked to animate a poster that is done for the Square Lake Film and Music Festival. The posters are done independent of my knowledge so it is always a surprise as to the style and look of that years poster. This is a challenge but also something that I look forward to working on each year. This year was no exception. As soon as I saw the poster, designed by Mike Davis of Burlesque of North America, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do but in this case the files were created for screen print and needed to be re-created. I used apple motion for the animation but looking back I wish I would have used a 3D program as the set-up in motion was pushing the program to its max.
