This is a multimedia video that I created in order to enhance my motion graphics and After Effects skills. I wanted to showcase my knowledge of After Effects CC 2015, along with illustration, typography, and editing abilities as a graphic designer.
Throughout the video, I wanted to highlight my skills, creative process, hobbies, and overall personality. All of the graphics in this video were created by me using Adobe Illustrator CC 2015. I wanted to keep the graphics minimal and within a material design style.
Something that was new to me during this project was the use of quick transitions. I created all of the effects using keyframes and very minimal presets. Any presets used were edited to be completely unique to this project.
Of course, my actual creative process is more extensive, I wanted to add an infographic style element to this video. I created this pie chart using no presets and setting keyframes along with the beat of the music.
The coffee scene was the most challenging aspect of this video for me. In order to create this "fill up" motion, I made a shape layer in After Effects and utilized the liquify effect. I manually edited the shape layer and set many keyframes to create a custom effect.
This was such an exciting and fun project for me to create. Before starting in After Effects, I created a script in Microsoft Word to plan how long the video was going to be. Then, I created the visual elements, such as the graphics and color scheme.
I wanted to use an upbeat song that could give me a lot of strong beats to align the graphics to. I do not own the song. The song used is called "Lost (ft Savio)" by Kontinuum.
