They came from diverse backgrounds — Ryan grew up in Edmonton and Boca hails from São Paulo, Brazil. When they each decided to come to Vancouver to hone their motion design skills and their paths crossed at VFS, they clicked right away.
Ryan contributed to Boca’s Drop, a Term 1 motion graphics piece that was featured by YouTube editors and made the finals in the 2007 Adobe Design Achievement Awards in San Francisco. Then came Typographics, a slick animated introduction to typography that hit the front page of Yahoo.com.
The natural next step? Working together on their final project at VFS. The result is an ambitious split-screen exploration of Evolution and Creationism called Duelity. It’s already won a PopVox Award and screened at the Art of Digital show in San Diego.
