Subconscious Assembly - 2017 Design Week Portland Short

"DRAEMS" is a series of dream inspired animations created by animators and motion artists in the Portland area. For my entry into this showcase, I wanted to explore the technicalities of a skateboard that would only be possible to showcase in an unrestricted, dreamlike environment. This detailed, virtual assembly gives a look into both the complex particulars of motion graphics and the limitless possibilities of skateboarding itself.
