Link: 2017 Winners, The Motion Awards

Posted by Stephen Petrey on Wednesday, May 9, 2018

There’s an absolute treasure-trove of incredible video production here. A congratulations all around to the winners. Just amazing work.

Here’s some of my favorite winners across multiple categories. 

Buck / Tinder – Invention of Together

Amazing storytelling. Tinder may get a lot of flack, but at least it didn’t violate the privacy of millions of people. I like Tinder, and I still think it’s vastly undervalued. I also believe the next prevailing Social Network empire will not be Facebook — it will be the Match Group.

Computer Team / Music Video: Washed Out Floating By

Was not expecting to see this in the list. But it’s a great video. I would love to see the process behind this video.

Gunner / Google Home App

Cool! These assets were built with Lottie, super neat!

VICE / Vice News Tonight Graphics

These are cool. Simple concepts, fast iteration. These are really really effective. I’d like to see local news reporting pickup on these kinds of graphics. Those whimsical non-representational, 3D texturized motion graphics we’re familiar with in local news are just so shitty.

Giant Ant / The Imaginary Friend Society / Finding Out You Have Cancer

A lovely, light-hearted piece from Giant Ant. A great spot, for a great cause. As if battling cancer isn’t hard enough, imagine being a kid with a cancer diagnosis. If you want to help the IFS, donate your imaginary friends here 🙂
