My final After Effects animation for Matt Rota's Analog to Digital class, first summer intensive of the MFA Visual Narrative. This is a "backstory" for the character I designed and developed over the semester: Nil. Illustrations done digitally. Before this I had never animated, so I hope to improve upon and after this video!
(Low-resolution stills from Disney's The Lion King and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus are lovingly borrowed and adapted for humor. Forgive me.)
