Branding and design studio Trollbäck+Company recently created the “main-on-end” titles for motion 2018, which took place June 5th – 8th in Santa Fe, NM. The piece screened at the conclusion of the event, commemorating the end of an era, as 2018 marks the final year of the motion “Un-Conference.” Trollbäck+Company, led by Executive Creative Director Elliott Chaffer and Designer/Animator Pat King, teamed up with in-camera FX master and longtime collaborator Christopher Webb of FX WRX to create the titles. The sequence features hand-crafted and laser-cut letterforms made from MDF, card, and plywood. The team explored these shapes with abstract in-camera effects, experimenting with elements of lighting, motion graphics, shadow play and projections. In addition, Trollbäck+Company Chief Creative Officer Alex Moulton composed original music for the piece.
