Toast

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.

Cheers.
