5 Second Projects


Some the best advice I’ve heard for people just getting into mograph (and for battle-scarred vets, as well) is to work on small, bite-size projects as often as you can. Taking on a six-minute music video sounds great in theory, but it usually just ends up collecting dust on a hard drive somewhere, intimidating you with its overwhelming scope.

With this in mind, Nick Campbell (greyscalegorilla) is creating a series of 5-second mograph challenges. They’re open to anyone, and I strongly encourage you toss your hat in the ring. They give you just enough structure to get you going in a hurry.

Check our some of the submissions for Nick’s latest challenge, “Your Name.” Fun stuff!

I think what Nick is doing is great and this really got me motivated to start experimenting and just creating more fun stuff.
