I had previously seen his work and really enjoyed his music video Doppleganger and had looked to do something similar as I was doing a music video brief using rhythm. I liked the way he never uses 3-D in his work and his style suits it so no 3-D is needed although I do want to use it myself if possible sometime. He also shown us some of his live work using an installation similar to VJing. It was classical music one by an artist called Nan Carrow the visuals was all based on the music creating geometric shapes and lines. I didnt enjoy it may have been the music as his visuals were still very good. What really interested me was his working method how he came from a Graphics background like me and he wanted to use his layout or compositions skills he had gained in graphic design in to moving image.
"take all kinds of things I had learned in Graphic Design and kind of try to translate them to movement on screen, whether if it is composition or a sequence"
He explained how he would create the moving image sequence like layouts creating the begining and the end frame or "composition" first and fill in the rest as he went along. As I found out this method really suits me I like to create the storyboards like layouts creating a composition I am happy with but not frame by frame I break it down and use my layouts as a guide to how I want that frame to look after maybe a 100 frames or whatever. Using this method has really helped me find my feet in moving image because at first I had no method and was struggling with the whole moving image thing.
