For Robert Greene's book Mastery, the challenge was to keep it simple, yet make it classy. Building from the book cover, I kept the shapes very basic and limited the colors to those that appeared on the cover.
The major hook on this one was ink based reveals for the various shapes throughout the piece. For this I used several stock videos.
For most of the video I used standard After Effects plugins, but adding to that mix, I also used Motion Boutique's Newton, Trapcode Particular and Video Co-Pilot's Optical Flares.
