To establish the central idea of this graduation film, I utilized the quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. - "A mind stretched by experience can never go back to its original proportions." The idea was to boldly state this notion of experience as the agent of and catalyst for grow and learning but also to subliminarlly tie this to the branding of Robert Morris. So I looked to work in some of their branding (as seen in the background).
I envisioned a very tangible, metallic emblem to complement the simple typography used for the quote. So I headed over to the 3d department to fashion a replica of the RMU emblem. Once developed, I brought the model over to After Effects for material assignment, animation and compositing. My process is illustrated in the time lapse workflow below.
