Back To B(AE)sics 2

I did another background test in AE. It went much quicker this time. It's not very tidy, but that's OK for now.


This one stars a friend who was kind enough to let me use his family pictures for tests.

Back To B(AE)sics



I decided to go back and do some very basic After Effects tests. It can't hurt to brush up. This is a first pass at a trippy, motion-edited image of a family member.

Drew Turns The Lights Off

Hopefully, at least some of you are familiar with Left-Handed Toons (By Right-Handed People). The webmasters, Drew and Justin, decided a couple of years ago to draw comical cartoons with their non-dominant hand. The idea was great, and the webcomics are hilarious. As time went by, they started added tiny bits of animation into the comics, and now, Drew has animated a music video!

The incredibly catchy song, "Turn The Lights Off," is by Tally Hall, and the video was made in After Effects. Drew notes that he had some assistance from Sean Donnelly of Awesome + Modest, who made Tally Hall's video for "Ruler of Everything." Take a look!



You can see the animatic for this video at Drew's blog, Spinnerdisc.
