Majoring in Motion Media Design, I was excited to see what I could find in the Blogger world for this often visually exciting content. What I found would sadly be classified as lacking. There seems to be very little blog use in this particular field. That isn’t to say I found zero blogs referring to Motion Media, however; Most were revolving around tutorial and informational necessity. These are nice but really leave people out of the experience. The content, jargon and realm could be confusing, dry or intimidating.
I did find a few that stood out from most, many motion graphic designers such as James Tottman, have websites or Vimeo stations where many display current and past works or demo reels for particular time periods.
I certainly hoped to find more current running artist blogs with updated content. I came across a common theme of abandoned blogs in the video and motion graphic fields. That being said Design as a general and broad category was filled with an array of blogs. Some were run by fans of certain design styles, others revolved around what their company worked on.
Overall I was surprised at the number of social media sites tied in with blogs and digital distribution of designer/artist content. Especially when I came across a lot of motion media reference on a popular website Pinterest.
Blogging can be a lot to keep up with at times, I can only wonder or project that reasons for the lack of blogs revolving around Motion Media Design has to do with the amount of time in making these works vs the fast flow viewing and updating typical of the blog experience.
