Collaborative conceptualization, illustration, editing, production, design and editing by Gaye Esguerra and Devo Acuña. But lots and lots of After Effects editing and awesomeness by Devo. Created for a company, for-fun-only event. Music (1958) borrowed from Skalpel because they're cool. August to September, 2009.
This is from the first version but still applies:
My collaborator, Devo, and I created this before the complete brief. All I knew was the office was going to host a poker event/party and I was tasked with a movie that would explain the details. I was going to do this first on Flash but ended up with Devo taking the creative helm with After Effects. I sketched out my idea in a storyboard and his thinking was on the execution, what's possible with After Effects and what wasn't. I would throw in the little that I knew of Flash. After completing the first segment, he thought of a way better execution and couldn't stop until he got it right. Although I started with the idea, this short movie is very much the product of Devo's genius, tenacity and great intuition.
