after effects project

ok so here's my after effects project, i used a super extra bonus party song everything flows. we had to use between 20 and 30 seconds of audio and sync some abstract animation to it as an intro to after effects, so here's what i did. there was a problem with the ram preview in after effects in college that we only noticed when rendering so all of our projects were out of sync, i adjusted it but its still a little off, but meh, dont care at this point. enjoy


ok so i've been very busy lately so sorry for not posting, although my blog's only read by about 2 people (sorry comrades)

i've been doing mainly digital work lately. I am currently working on 3d max, after effects and flash projects among other things. I have never used after effects or 3d max before. 2 of these projects are christmas themed. i'll post things when they are complete.

also, for the past 2 weeks we had John Canemaker over from NewYork, an oscar winning animator who also teaches in NewYork. We had a week long program on acting in animation and a second week on storyboarding and staging. a big eye opener.

anyway. for now here is an early screen grab of my blocked out santa. i'll add the character design too. please keep in mind that this is not a modeling project, just an intro to max.

also i'll leave you with a little video summary of bits and bobs from last year
as always please comment
