Motion Monday: Check out Behind-the-Scenes Videos by Creative Professionals

As aspiring graphic designers and digital media professionals, it’s helpful to check out how other creative pros are showing off their work.

We’ve noticed various creative pros embracing online videos as a way to showcase their work– whether the industry is motion graphics, sound design, graphic design or entertainment design.

Check out a creative process video posted below, for example, from Toronto-based animation and computer animation studio, Tinman Creative:

Tinman in Review- February 2012

Specializing in animation and design for all types of video– whether it’s commercial, film or an animated series– the two-person team at Tinman Creative handles pre-production, full animation production and pipeline development for traditional 2D animation, flash, stop-motion, CG, live-action film making.

The animation/production studio was founded in January after two animation industry pros joined forces– animator Brett Jubinville, and film producer Morghan Fortier. The duo published this short video, shown above, highlighting some of the projects they worked on in February. The video not only demonstrates the range of creative skills the studio has to offer, but also the painstaking process involved in the animation and video production process.

Animation and video editors aren’t the only ones using these behind-the-scenes process videos to showcase their creative projects.

Check out this one below from Santa Monica, California-based graphic design creative agency, DKNG Studios, as they develop, from start to finish, a promotional poster for a cross-country tour for IFC’s television series, Portlandia.

We mentioned DKNG Studios in a previous post, here, and always enjoy checking out the agency’s latest work. Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman are the designers behind DKNG Studios who specialize in entertainment design such as posters, apparel graphics and packaging for musical artists and television shows.

Again, the process videos published by DKNG shows off the duo’s wide range of creative abilities, their dedication, and attention to detail in each of their creative projects.
