Interesting template script for After Effects powered through spreadsheets…

FLOW - Part 01

is a multi-part series that explores the steps of a motion graphics & visual effects project. Artists Craig Whitaker and EJ Hassenfratz will discuss both the “how” of getting through a project as well as the often more important, “why”. We will begin at the early stages of art direction, script review and initial client requests. As we move through the project, various software techniques and choices will be explained and demonstrated - from

Cupidiculous(2014) is a motion graphic project fusing 2D cel-animation and 3D techniques together. It conveys a humor story about Cupid, who makes Adam and Eve fall in love. But this act of love leads to overpopulation, overconsumption and global warming. So he has to find the way to fix these problems. Most characters and elements have been done in 3D but rendered as 2D flat vector look with poppy pastel, splashy and heightened color schemes. Then added more 2D liquid speed lines by drawing frame by frame. Even though laughter is the major objective, but Cupidiculous also delivers critical messages covertly. More or less audiences will get that with absolutely enjoyment.

Going to try “lens distortions” out and see what I see. I know they are trying to sell their product for this little spot, but way over kill on the distortions yikes. Think it would sell better if it was a little more subtle.

What Space Really Looks Like - Nina Geometrieva

Need to create a lil template to use that style of gradient shading/motion inside of after effects. Think it would be pretty easy to do with time displacement. only problem could be the rounding hmmmm
