Bear with me with this but here is a little background on the thought process for the post.This morning I was listening to the latest School of Motion podcast where Joey interviewed Onur Senturk (linked below). The episode was framed around Onur's career as a Director in the motion design space, and all that comes with it. I was blown away how much he can do as an individual in all aspects of motion design. Whether it be technical vfx, design, or the big picture creative the guy is a humble power house. His path to where he is now seemed to be able to be boiled down to one goal: to possess the ability to take any image in his head and put it up on screen.A few weeks prior, I decided to dive into some episodes of Ash Thorp's "The Collective" podcast and ended up listening to the interview with the two man studio Ranger and Fox (linked below) made up of Brett Morris and Steve Panicara. It was a stellar interview and gave a lot of insight on the working relationship of two friends that wanted to make cool stuff together for a living.When I was introduced to Motion Design I wanted to be the Onur– the visionary that perfectly at home in collaboration, but can be completely self sufficient if and when one needs to be. However, as I grow in creative career I am finding that the idea of a creative partnership is creeping into my head more and more.
As well as the general discussion of design duos and individuals, I am curious where does the rest of the community fall? Does your growth as an artist seem like a path to walk alone – relatively speaking – or do you feel like you are waiting for the right creative kinship to come along?
