Final Animation

Working on this animation was essentially an extended exercise in acclimating to the After Effects interface and getting to know its different features, effects, and functions.

In the course of working on this project, I experimented with track mattes, blending modes, motion graphics effects, a variety of slightly more off-the-beaten-path keyframe manipulations (such as trim paths, pen-tool-aided path creation, and speed graphs),  sound design, text animation, masking, and others. With the exception of the video of the ocean and fire from the title scene, I created all visual assets in the piece, either in Photoshop or directly in After Effects. The music, which I looped and distorted, is by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Scott Walker, and Celer.
