TheAnimationEmpire - Making of the MysteryGuitarMan 3D Logo

Mystery Guitar Man goodness.

174 images. 72 video effects. 53 titles. 6 videos. 5.5 minutes. 1 Earth.

MysteryGuitarMan has used this 3D logo animation in...
Menage a MGM
Joe Castillo - Movie Extra Extraordinaire

By the way, this is the 3D animated MGM logo made for MysteryGuitarMan. This documentary was created before "The Puzzle," so it doesn't talk about how he went back to wearing hats.

Special thanks fo Gnamp for modeling and animating this logo for us as part of his internship:

The logo animation can also be viewed by itself on his channel.

The logo model and animation were done in Anim8or, but you should go to if you're looking for free 3D software. The logo background was done in Photoshop. This video was mostly edited with Movie Maker, with a bit of Adobe Premiere. The 3D character at the beginning was modeled and animated in 3D Studio Max. We probably use Max the most, followed by Maya, and then Blender. All music in this video is royalty free.
