Iaminawe created 5 minutes of rippling flowing motion graphics which were projected over the Jazzart Dance Company for the finale of this excellent dance production at Artscape. The show featured Sibongile Khumalo and Neo Muyanga and was one of our most successful projections to date with the music, dancers and animated projection really melting together into an awesome experience.

┬áIaminawe created over an hours worth of motion graphics for this ambitious musical theatre production created for Theatre on the Bay and performed at Montecasino in Johannesburg. The animations were projected on a huge screen which interacted with the host and singing talent, Andre Schwartz. The whole motion design also encompassed an animated website based on Andre and entering into the different segments of the show as different parts of the website. The website also came with animated crashes, viruses, porn popups and sending and receiving e-mail. This job was definitely a lot of work… a whole lot :)

Iaminawe also mastered the backing tracks and animation into a full show dDVD including 5.1 surround sound and even a click track for a live pianist to follow.

Unfortunately the animation posted here doesnt have sound to it… sorry.

Jocasta Rising Animation

iaminawe created a dark visual mashup of stock footage, 3D Animation, 2D flash animation, motion graphics and footage shot in and around Cape Town. The production was a contempory retelling of the Greek tragedy of Oedipus and was met with great feedback. Iaminawe created the animation based on the actors in the production and the highly technical production went off without a hitch… until a fire partially destroyed the stage and cut the run short.

This animation edit is a combination of the animation that we created as well as photos that we took of the production while it was running. It gives a cool overview of some of the theatre work we do as it really contextualises the screen within the set and how a lot of these animations look projected on a 16m X 10m screen.

The awesome music for the production was created by Black Belt Jones who of course we did an identity for too.

Iaminawe were also involved in the poster and microsite for the production.

New Day Animation

This was iaminawes first theatre animation and it was 10 minutes worth of painter/flash/after effects animation that received great feedback from press and audiences. It was a crazy ride of learning after effects and developing an animation workflow with painter. It turns out to be one of our favourite pieces of work and we are still really proud of it.

Be sure to check out the New Day microsite showcasing the other aspects of design work iaminawe created.

New Day website

Lots of rainbow nation animation… yeehaa
