Australian Open of Surfing – Manly Beach

The event includes surfing, skateboarding and arts\music events around Manly beach in Sydney.

Went with a grunge graphic look to suit the style of the event and the music track.

Continuing the use of textures in the motion graphics I added water elements to this design, displacing the logo with a water texture so that as the wave hits the logo appears to be a part of the background video.

Also made a deliberate choice to use footage that was tight on the surfers at the start and end so that the viewer is placed straight into the environment of the event.
