Here's my latest AE creation.
Reputation Changer was looking to quickly and creatively tell their story with a quick motion graphics piece. My partner at Simplifilm (we have a name now), Chris Johnson worked with them to draft a script, and I gave it a few finishing touches.
From there we hired voiceover artist Marc Scott, and went to audiojungle.net for music.
This piece is created in After Effects using mostly standard plugins. I created the "stick man" Adobe Illustrator (in layers) and with some simple parenting did all of the animation in AE.
My biggest creative challenge on this piece was demonstrating all of the various client possibilities without putting specific faces on them. People read into images, so I came up with the idea of using a simple anonymous "stick person" to convey, politician/sports star/high profile person etc.
I also played a little with the kinetic type, although only in spots. One of these days I'll explore that further.
This piece was a lot of fun to put together, although all of the character animation was a significant time investment.
And again, this is the first production under our new name "Simplifilm" We take complex ideas and make them simple. As of this posting, the site (simplifilm.com) is still being completed.
