New Five Second Project: “Your Name”

April 3, 2009 - By 

UPDATE: The “Your Name” project has ended. This week’s contest just started. Check it out here

Really great work last week for the Circle Vs Square Project. The work keeps getting better and better!

This week’s project is all about YOU. Everyone needs some personal pimping. Need to finally make that reel intro you have been putting off? Maybe you always wanted to see your name in lights? Now is your chance. Use this theme to make a short motion piece with your name or company’s logo and link it in the comments of this blog post. “Shout Box” submissions will not be seen. Please be sure to post a link in this post’s comments to ensure me seeing it and posting it. Can’t wait!

  • “Need to finally make that reel intro you have been putting off? ”

    Get out of my head, homey!

  • I’ve relaunched my logo and animation for it. And I think, hey Mac that’s somthing for this project. Okay it’s a little bit short. But I’m too, 1,64 m ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Well, here’s my go…
    As a side-note, this 5 second project series is a great idea. It will definitely help people like me who really don’t get a chance to do a lot of small motion graphic stuff.

  • Hi, everyone. I’m from Italy and just discovered this beautifull place.
    can you tell me which is the best format and compression for vimeo’s uploading?

  • Sam, just make it qt h264 in high quality and it should be fine ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I saw this tutorial online which gave me an idea… Here it is:

    I really need a plus account, this whole one HD clip a week is no fun.

  • By the way I think your project might have crashed vimeo โ€“ literally took ten hours to encode because of high upload traffic. Hundreds of 5 second projects I assume.

  • Hi everyone. I love this 5 sec projects idea.
    here’s mine

  • Aaagghh..!! I don’t have time to do my one.. Hope next one!
    Cheers ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hi,
    this one is a little longer then 5 seconds.

  • Hey Nick and/or group, what has been the general time cycle on these 5 sec. bits. Change the theme weekly, biweekly? Rad stuff.

  • Ryan, There will be a new theme every week. Thanks!

    Great entries so far!

  • Every week eh? Sounds good. Make the next one Typography & Triangles. Also went through John & Lloyd’s tutorials yesterday and this evening so I thought I’d add a logo animation to the bunch based on what they showed. Both great tutorials which teach a lot. &

    Indy Logo

    BTW, some sweet stuff being posted here. Very cool.
