For Brad Feld's Startup Communities trailer, I found myself trying to re-created the look of a line art cover in motion graphic form. To achieve the look, I used Trapcode's 3D stroke, combined with the standard stroke plugin. I also used a bit of the Vegas effect, and using animated masks.
In addition to the strokes, I relied on Riot Gear from video copilot for the paint splatters.
Overall the production was fairly straight forward. The biggest challenge was trying to figure out where things were in 3D space with the 3D stroke effect. Once you bend it, things get really weird.
I'm beginning a second trailer with the same look for the same author this week.
