100 Days of Motion: Reflecting on my Daily Animation Challenge

March 26th 2018, a little over a year ago from today, I started a new project for myself called “100 Days of Motion”. I figured since it’s been a while, it would be constructive to reflect on the project. Whether or not the title is accurate, 100 Days of Motion was a 100-day challenge that involved creating and posting anything to do with motion graphics, visual effects, or 3D animation. I would create five different pieces to post each week, Monday through Friday on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. I’ve pinned down my reflection into three parts. The Overall Takeaway, Highlights, and What’s Next.

Why is it Cool to ‘Hate’ Movies? Let’s be Constructive

It’s Thursday night and you just left the movie theater after watching the next summer blockbuster with two good friends. One friend is erratic with excitement and future plot theories, and the other friend expresses their experience as a snooze-fest. Back and forth, each of your friends fights with various objections while they await your opinion. While you may feel neutral about the movie, there’s just something easier about expressing how bad the movie was. Whether or not your points are objective or subjective, you might rarely mention the things done well.
