Motion Graphers

Motion graphics as a genre of media technology, encompasses a wide variety of graphic work that uses video and/or animation to create the illusion of motion. The art of motion graphics has evolved significantly over time. In the last fifty years we have moved from the title sequences of Saul Bass to 3-D particle systems. Today, the production process varies from artist to artist. One designer, Kyle Cooper, has in a way followed the footsteps of Saul Bass. Cooper, like Bass, works with title sequences - most critically acclaimed for the 1995 film Se7en. More recently, Cooper worked on scenes in the musical film Across the Universe (2007), Here is a clip from the "For the Benefit of Mr. Kite" scene.
 Another designer, Mike Winkelmann-also known as "Beeple", focuses mostly on ways to "visual music through video." In one of his most recent projects, Beeple worked with Vince Ream on a music video for the Flying Lotus song "Kill Your Co-Workes". Link to the video below.
