Motion graphics is fun stuff to us. Here's a fundraising promo animation we just posted to the South Grand Lake Regional website. www.southgrandlakeairport.com ... See MoreSee Less

Prior to re-locating to OK 12 years ago I provided computer graphics design and logistic engineering services to the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Port Hueneme, CA. Contracts awarded to me were competed nationally.

Most of my work at that time was in the area of motion graphics. I did a lot of multi-media work that found it’s way into interactive DVD presentations. These presentations were directed to senior command personnel at DoD, including Chief of Naval Operations.

Since coming to OK my work has been all website development but now with advances in computer technology and internet capability we can start to be serious about utilizing motion graphics in our web work.

In addition to the types of products shown on our Motion Graphics Page we are able to offer cover videos and animation to Facebook pages.

Animated GIF

Last week we had the opportunity to prepare a cover video for David Hale’s Honey Creek Outdoors Facebook page.

Facebook began rolling out the cover video technology in May and it works pretty well at this point. The only bug that we have found is that the cover video will not play on a phone if accessed through a web browser. On phones the Facebook application itself must be used for video playback. I am sure the software engineers at Facebook and Apple will resolve this issue in the short term.

From desktop units and iPads the video plays great and is an ideal way to advertise products and services.

Cover videos can contain video clips, still images, animations, and audio.
