Objective: Create a narrative of your choosing that follows a 1-2 minute audio track. This should be a comprehensive overview of the fundamental lessons practiced in After Effects throughout the semester.
Me: Frank Zappa is the shit!!!! I grew up as a jazz and hip hop junkie... reluctant to dive into the rock ocean. So, I didn't know much of the legend that is Zappa.. until recently. Wow. Words, videos, pixels and/or pigments can't properly express the brilliance of his creativity. Genres can't hold that fool down. What a workhorse!!
I thought it'd be a ton of fun and equally challenging to take on a project using his audio. Deadlines kept me from dressing this up to my liking. But, I'm pleased with the results. Zappa vs. D/C/S round 2 is definitely in the future. Hot Rats!!!
