Motion and Animation

As an artist I am always interested in finding new ways to use my skills. With the internet wired world we see more and more videos being used to promote and entertain all the time. I can create animation and motion graphics using my art and design skills or collaborate to promote comics, books, games, music and other entertainment.

Here I collaborate with the author of the graphic novel series to promote the latest novel Kid Beowulf and the Song of Roland. The video has been shown on-line and off-line at events and conventions. My goal was to keep the integrity of the story and artwork while still adding intriguing visuals to engage the audience including aniating existing artwork and recreating a setting in 3D.

CAM-JAM 2011- No1 Animation Jam – Sunday May 22, 2011 at the Cartoon Art Museum from Brian Kolm on Vimeo.

This promo video is for an event I am co-organizing with the Cartoon Art Museum bookstore in which we are inviting artist with the challenge to create some animation as a group within a 6 hour period. One of the techniques we are using is the ‘Sketchbook Animation’ which this video samples. In fact the animation was created in around 5 hours to help demonstrate what can be done with art and the latest in technology.
