Motion Graphics Finalists

Motion graphics are a way to communicate with the viewer, and add depth to a story. Together with music and effective copy, they can give us a message. We use them to create ads, title sequences for movies, videos and to share information.

It was during my first year in college when I, for the first time, learned that there's such a job called graphic designer. I was majoring in automation engineering back then, but I knew that had to change. In my sophomore year, I transferred to an art school in Chicago, and that was the beginning of my journey in the creative industry.

Picture books were the first to pique my interest. When I discover motion design, I was intrigued by how I can make illustrations come to life. Just like picture books, motion design merges motion storytelling and audio to create an engaging piece of content that helps reach audiences in a compelling way. Just that this time, the audiences are adults like you and me. So I figured, why not create content that is just as engaging and fun for adults?

I first realized I wanted to work in the creative media and entertainment industry when I was 18, I was inspired by the works from DeeKay motion on instagram. I love his style of animation, very fun to watch. Beside that, ManvsMachine is also a big inspiration for me, I remember watching an animation done by them which is Versus for Maxon and it blew my mind.

When I was little I was always fascinated by my mum’s knitting and paper craft books. I could look at the interesting knitting patterns for hours. Exploring the negative space created by paper cuts was like a fun game to me. Quitting my uninteresting office job allowed me to remember my happiest childhood memories in the arts and crafts, the joys I had in them. So I took up the motion design course in 3dsense Media School and I believe it’s one of the best decisions that I have made.

After I graduated from Digital Media Design course, I realized that I would like to go deeper into the motion graphics design industry because I think I can have many opportunities to apply my knowledge in this area on many different types of projects, for example: advertisement, AR, VR, interactive design, movie an more. Another reason is that I want to enjoy more interesting job in my life instead of typical work.

When I just graduated. I did not know whether if I could work in the creative industry until I started freelancing on my own as a 3D Motion Designer for less than a year, then I found the passion and joy of it. Making new friends by meeting new people and gaining exposure by doing different projects. That is what keeps me going in working in the industry and also it made me start my own agency Winston Creative Pte. Ltd.

Having recently completed my Master in Interactive Design & Game Development at SCAD, I am continuing my studies in computer graphics & programming as a CG Generalist. My expertise is in procedural modelling & pipeline optimization, but I have expanded beyond to apply procedural strategies into rigging, animation, FX, real-time applications & machine learning. I adapt quickly & truly enjoy learning new things every day. I look forward to an opportunity to work with a team as motivated as I am.

I was first 14 when I discovered Cinema 4D and After Effects in a youtube tutorial on how to make "Intros" for youtube channels. I have no idea why, but it sparked a small fire within me that just wanted me to play around with the software as much as I could. I would make 1 "Intro" per day, all for fun and for the sake of getting better at something through practice and endeavor. Little did I know this "hobby" could turn into a career.

When I was 11 years old, I discovered the exhilarating magic of the brick-film, also known as the “LEGO stop-motion animation”. As a young LEGO fanatic, I watched countless amounts of entertaining brick-films on YouTube during my spare time. My father saw this deep passion in me to create these films with my LEGOs and allowed me to borrow his laptop and old webcam. After completing my first brickfilm and animation (which sucked lol), I was determined to land a job in the Animation Industry!
