My name is Uçman Balaban and I'm a motion graphics artist from Turkey. Like many people, I am also a big Star Wars fan, and naturally I was really excited for Star Wars: Force Awakens. Being the motion graphics artist that I am, I decided to do a little countdown to celebrate the film's release to cinemas. So, I designed and animated 15 gifs and uploaded them daily leading up to the premiere.
I usually draw everything in Illustrator and import them to After Effects and then animate them. It's really not that hard when you are ok with sitting in front of a computer for very long time!

FINALLY going to see The Force Awakens!
This project was really fun to do and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed animating them.
If you are a big nerd like me and love superheroes, cartoons and movies you should check out my Instagram for daily uploaded loops. As a little added bonus, here's is a Simpsons for your enjoyment.
Thanks for your support!
