I recently had a chance to interview Steffen Knoesgaard about his excellent 30 Motion Tests in 30 Seconds project he posted on Behance. His excellent project is EXACTLY the thing I love to see and recommend to people who are trying to get better at their craft. Steffen set strict restrictions and made one second of animation a day, all with his logo front and center. The end result is a ton of great promotional work all related to a similar theme and color palate. What a great way to learn and get his name out.
Download His Scene Files
Steffen graciously included a few of his scenes for download so that you can pick them apart and see how he pulled off some of his techniques. You will need the free plugin noisedeformer to open many of his scenes. You can get it here. I love how graphic and minimal some of these renders are. it really shows that 3D design isn’t all about shiny reflective objects. Great work!
