Don’t ever let someone talk you into shooting a wedding. It has to be something you want to do. Weddings take alot of work to pull off, not to mention the stress involved in making sure you have the shots you need in order to deliver a good product. There are hundreds of blog posts that talk about the essentials to shoot weddings. That’s all fine and well. Here are three things I have learned as I have filmed weddings.
Youtube is the place to be for finding the hottest trending songs, and along with that, it also contains some of the best motion backgrounds for lyric videos. In her song, Heartbeat, the creators of this video use several flashy colorful motion backgrounds that are over laid onto the footage to create beautiful color washes, also known as video filters. The use of colorful flashes ads energy to the video and keeps the pace of it flowing. Seeing the the video has nearly 45 million views, apparently it’s gone over well with the general public.
I get alot of emails and sometimes social media questions asking, “What do you do with motion backgrounds?” So, I thought I would try and shed some light on several uses for these royalty free video loops. If you watch any TV, there are roughly 6-8 commercials in between the segments of a tv show. Now, out of those 6-8 commercials, on average, 3 of those will have motion backgrounds at the end of them to display text, phone numbers, websites, or other discounts and deals. And as we all know, there are hundreds of commercials displayed each hour. Animated video loops simply make the background image more interesting to watch than a still, static image.

I will sometimes watch TV and see a neat commercial and see a creative motion background attached to it. An LG commercial recently caught my attention and I decided to try and replicate the space motion background that was used in it. Here is the commercial with their motion background, and below it is a similar one to that that I created to see if I can match it. It is challenge I like accepting to help keep me learning something new each day.
There are many great website out there to either purchase or download motion backgrounds. Several of the sites offer free video loops, offer paid subscriptions, or pay as you download. No matter the business they have set up, these media websites have done an excellent job in curating a library of motion backgrounds that are useful for any media project or production.
It is very essential for a graphic designer to understand the importance and psychology of colors as they are very crucial in designing graphics. While designing graphics for your business, it is important to comprehend the association with different colors and the color moods as it is essential to understand the way in which people interpret colors. Our minds are programmed in such a way that they react differently to different colors. Even the simplest graphics have a considerable amount of thought and time which is spent on designing them. Colors play an important role in graphic designs, and it is crucial for a designer to know the outcomes arising out of the association with different colors.
Church stage designs didn’t always start out with multi-million dollar video walls, 4K Black Magic ATEM video switchers and million dollar audio consoles. Instead you simply had a choir loft, several hanging can lights, and a large podium with a single microphone that always got bumped every time the pastor opened his Bible or got too into his message.
