A friend of mine put this in front of me. Excellent stuff.
Roger Ebert featured a nice animation at the Chicago Sun-Times:
And while I try to never acknowledge the existence of Facebook, he said something interesting…
The director sent me this link. As I watched. I became gob-smacked. Astonishing, how animation makes reality irrelevant.
What I would encourage my MoGraph 1 students to take from this is that with a decent command of After Effects and a very strong sense of story, you can make some worth taking 4 minutes to watch…which is honestly a lot harder than it sounds.
STORY is the most important special effect.
