In the spring of 2016, I was tasked with designing the motion graphic templates for the Banff World Media Festival, an award show showcasing national and international media in the town of Banff, Alberta. I used After Effects as my main tool in creating the graphic templates, with Cinema 3D as the tool to create 3D assets.
During production, I was experimenting with particle systems. I had done some experimentations with them during my time in art school, when particle systems had an aesthetic appeal for computational artists. I wanted to bring this underground trend to the general audience and to the film and television crowd.
The templates became a hit and were used again the following year.
