If you are an animator, chances are you have asked yourself the question:
How can my animation work go from good to spectacular?
The answer is not in tutorials or in books about this or that software. It is not about improving the quality of your renders either. Maya, C4D, Houdini, Vray, Arnold, Redshift. Those are tools. The key to spectacular animation is not in the tools but in how you understand motion.
Motion Orchestration is more than a book. It is the culmination of 25 years of experience as an animator put together in a step-by-step system that takes into account a holistic view of how animation is perceived by the viewer, the emotional depths involved in that perception, and how the animator can connect with this emotional content. This connection is achieved by analyzing all the aspects and elements of an animation, from the manipulation of keyframes to the timing of a lens flare or camera shake, and orchestrating the pieces so each one is enhanced by the others, resulting in a visual harmony comparable to a piece of orchestral music, hence the name.
The book is also dynamic. Rather than using conventional methods of publishing, the book* contains animations to easily explain the concepts and how to apply them. It was imperative for me that the book contained examples in motion. I wouldn't have published it any other way.
Motion Orchestration is a conceptual work, applicable to any style of animation, whether it is stop motion, traditional 2D, 3D or motion graphics, and to your software of preference. It is full of little "secrets" which have been used extensively and proven extremely valuable as important part in the creation of award-winning animation.
