Paper Toys

These are some paper toys I created for an animation about working with hand made materials vs. Computer generated imagery, part of a Graphic Design Course. Produced by The Learning Connexion.

I used Sketchup to model the parts and a very useful plugin called Flattery to unfold the models and add the fold/glue areas. No texture/lines created in the computer, its all made with a black marker.

 

Mulukhiyah – ملوخية

This happened while self-learning 3D motion graphics and animation, using Maxon’s Cinema 4D software. its a combination of Splines, Cubes, MoGraph Cloner and Effectors (Formula, Random and Shader) and a little driven data expression with XPresso. Its true, some motion graphics results can be achieved with only two keyframes sometimes.

Somehow, at the end, this reminds me of Mulukhiyah, a famous Middle Eastern dish made from Corchorus leaves. Just Google it.

The Trial

Here’s the release of Supermodel’s first single ‘The Trial’ from album ‘Rimu & Roses’ produced by Reinhold Mack (Queen, ELO, Rolling Stones, David Bowie)

I did the visual effects for this music video, tracking eyes can be really tricky sometimes but always fun challenge.
Awesome and professional band, crew and cast.

Ahmad’s Wall 2013

I came back to Wellington from a trip in the Middle East, to find that my workmates at the Learning Connexion have instigated a daily creative venture, with me being the theme of it. It was so wonderful and I felt so honored and lucky to be working with such an incredibly creative and inspiring team.
