HA1 – Motion Graphics Now – Task 3 Analysis
Type of motion graphic and purpose:
What is its purpose and specific subject?
(Title, Credits, animated captions, stings,
indents, interactive menus, web banner)
The First type of motion graphic would be interactive menu from my blog, so the Indiana jones video, it’s
purpose is to be able to go to places on the DVD. for example; choose a scene, play the movies and maybe
special features. Then the second example would be Iron Man 3, and thirdly I would talk about Thor.
What do you see and what do you read
from this? What symbolism is there?
How suitable is the sequence for its
A lot of shots from the movie so this is very well put together, it shows the movie and I feel as though I have to
watch it to see what happens.
Iron man 3 has an abstract of a lot of things, there is the Jarvis, a DNA sculpture and then its goes through the
movie with shots and plays music in the background.
Then finally there is THOR, it starts of with odin (thor’s father) saying “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be
worthy, shall possess the power of THOR!” then thors it through the gateway to other worlds …
Animation, visual effects, colour, audio,
Blur, sharpen, distortion, rotation, opacity.
Uses quite a lot of fade and layer over layer videos to show most of what is happening on.
Iron man uses CGI and small screen’s with video’s on to look like it would in the movie.
Finally there is thor it probably uses the same techniques as are in iron man because there are very similar.
