Based in Manchester, James is part of doodledoMotion who specialise in creative motion graphics, animation and pre & postproduction for TV and corporate clients. He is also an ex MMU D&AD student. He showed a selection of his motion graphic work including TV spots and Title sequences.
This was an interesting and very relevant lecture for me not only because he is an ex student but because Motion graphics is an area of design I would like to pursue. After his lecture he gave a short tutorial on some of the capabilities of After Effects and demonstrated how to use the puppet tool. This is something that no lecturer has done before but I think it was worthwhile and useful information. I also managed to talk one-to-one with James and ask him some specific after effects questions in relation to one of my projects, which proved very helpful.
