Lunar Gala: Motion Design

Lunar Gala is one of Pittsburgh’s largest and most anticipated fashion events. Last year it sold out filling over 1200 seats each year with 140+ students involved in producing, designing, modeling, and dancing in the show. For the 2019 Production of Lunar Gala, the Motion Team and I are working to create motion assets while collaborating with the other creative teams to create and implement the show’s visual and brand experience.

My Role:

  • Rapid exploration and iteration for development of motion assets for the theme video and day of show experience.

  • Collaborated with Print, and Web teams to establish and maintain a cohesive brand experience across all mediums.

My Deliverables

  • The 2019 Promo video

  • The 2019 Theme Reveal video

  • 3 videos to play during pre-show, intermission, and post-show

  • 1 of 3 dance videos

  • Produced 20 line videos in collaboration with my two teammates


Day of Show Experience

For the day of show experience I collaborated with my team to create 20 line videos, 3 dance videos, and 3 videos to play during pre-show, intermission, and post-show. I was responsible for creating the 3 videos for pre, inter, and post show, one dance video, and helping to create and visually treat footage for the line videos using scenery videos taken from Google Earth Studio that we then edited and treated in After Effects.
