I've been playing around with the Puppet Tool in After Effects. I used Photoshop to isolate the elements in the photo, and the clone tool to cleanup the background.
I used Particular to create the "camera flashes", using the star particle.
I wish the original pic was more high rez. Tried to mimic the style of the NBA playoff commercials.
This is something I've been working on for an intro to Elton Brand's LiveVideo.com show.
Probably will add more elements to it.
Let me know what you think, and any suggestions to make it better.
