Our first project at Cabrillo after going through all the tutorials in After Effects. The video was broken into three parts: 30 sec beginnning, 2 min actual content, then 30 sec ending.
Finding out that I didn't know how to animate in photoshop, I decided to draw each "frame" of what ever is animated, then use what I could in After Effects. I've always wanted to practice drawing without using lineart, giving it a more painterly look. This way, it wasn't "sharp" since the story was to be soft, slow and sweet.
There are of course, a few jerky moments in the movie that I'll hopefully have time to edit and perfect in my portfolio.
