As inspiration for motion and "cinema" as Selby described it, we watched a couple YouTube clips in class on Monday. It's by the animators of Wallace and Gromit and they're quite hilarious. I always used to watch that duo at my grandparents house and so it was really cool when I discovered their beginning work. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFfK5vl5N5g
This is my final video. Having not used After Effects before, it was a slow process in simultaneously teaching myself the program as well as creating an animation. It was a lot of late night google problem-solving as well as group creating sessions to bounce ideas and knowledge around to each other. Despite all the learning, I was able to make something in the end. So I hope you enjoy this video and learn something inspiring about the ascender.
