Power Redux – Fast, Fast Afternoon AE

A StoryDoula CC Original

SInspiredq by our AE class field trip to visit Jeff, Joey and Ryan at Digico yesterday, I carved out just an hour this afternoon to make a fast, fast After Effects comp.  Used a different light for each bit of text, a null object, a camera – in the end I think I might have been moving the null object not the camera around whoops and I probably should have gone a little heavier on the Easy Ease feature.  No, Jeff.  That’s not a lens flare. It’s a strobe.

FYI.  According to Jeff – we are the only After Effects class in the Shenandoah Valley.  I think we should make T-Shirts!

This depicts how my concepts of power have evolved over the past few years.  Creative Commons music license Ce Comme Ca from Serial by Mr. Puntz hosted at Jamendo.
