STORY contacted ABC for the 4th straight year to create live visuals for their conference in Chicago. As usual, Barton went beyond the call of duty to ensure the motion graphics would exceed expectations. After months of drinking organic coffee, listening to dub step, and trading in his ABC tees and Nike Dunks for American Apparel all-over print shirts and slip on Vans, he successfully channelled his inner hipster to create these deck visuals. During Barton’s vision quest, he came up with the idea to combine cell animation and 3D renders to add depth to the hand drawn looking animals. He set up the animations to be controlled live to match each song as it was performed. As always, STORY and Chicago were great hosts. Looking forward to next year!
