I'm trying to create this effect in Motion, but am having difficulty. Any help would be appreciated.

Use the circle shape tool to create a circle. Set to outline. Add logo. Add "Motion Path" behavior to logo. Change "Path Shape" in motion path behavior to Geometry. Drag the circle shape to the Shape Source well. Hide the Circle and you have a logo that follows around the circle. Add the other logos to the same motion path just like you did with the first and adjust the Offset to get the different logos at different points in the circle path. Best of luck.

Thanks, but how do I get the picture to rotate smoothly around the head at the same time? I have tried using keyframes for different points in the circle, but it looks too forced.

Are you saying you would like the objects to not move and then start to move?

No, I would like them to be in constant orbit around the head. LOL, that sounds funny.

Once you completed the steps above. Make sure the content is in a 3D group. Change the X Rotation of the Circle to say -64. Add your person to the group and the image connected to the Motion Path will rotate in front and behind of the person. Hope this helps.
