Motion Graphics / VFX
I cut my motion graphics teeth in commercial video at Invodo. We did product oriented retail and manufacturing video content for web and mobile. I would stick pre-animated screens to videos of people using devices using a combination of After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The combination of motion graphics animation and VFX taught me an awful lot about tracking, painting, and compositing for video and image. The focus on pixel perfect video work is a certain kinda crazy that when repeated many, many times results is super buttery content. The compositing I learned aided me quite a bit on projects later like the Dailies when photography/compositing did a bunch of the heavy lifting.
