Animated sci-fi trailer for the Galactic project

Project Overview: An animated trailer to help showcase the sci-fi UI elements of the Galactic template for After Effects.

Client: Loop


About the project

The Galactic sci-fi UI template is my latest project for Made by Loop, and one I've genuinely loved working on from start to finish.

Perhaps my favourite part of the process was creating the trailer in After Effects to help showcase and advertise the key features of the template. The screen mockup and visuals I created for the trailer ended up being fed back into the template itself to help others design their own visuals.

Editing the template visuals to a pretty epic audio track was also a lot of fun, as was trying to create a photorealistic style within After Effects - it really makes you think about the composition of things, light, and how things would look "in the real world".

Interested in creating an animation?

With more and more people watching videos online, animation and motion design are a great way to get noticed and spread your ideas to the world.

Don't worry if you're not sure where to start, get in touch and let's have a chat about how I can help.

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
