This animation was created for a college project entitled #wonderland. This was a dance show based on Alice in Wonderland, created by the Dance Students at City & Islington College.
All animations created by myself.
Music: Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling.
This animation was a cut down version of the first initial animation I created and timed to synchronise with the dance moves. This version was was used for the live performance. The initial full length animation has also been uploaded.
The dance show was to include animations created by myself and Vehemente Gomez to enhance the production. We were also on hand during the live shows to play the animations at the correct times and also play the music tracks on cue.
This animation was created in After Effects and was inspired by a tutorial I found on Trapcode Mir.
It uses a number of effects and plugins. Namely, Trapcode Mir for the waves, Trapcode Particular for the main Orb animation, Trapcode Sound Waves which uses the music to effect and distort the various elements using expressions and Optical Flares for the additional glows on the Orb.
The style of the animation is not anything like the work I have produced before and has inspired me to be much more creative and free thinking in my future work. I am extremely proud of this work especially the way the music effects the different elements which is something I have always wanted to achieve and never know how until this project.
Seeing this animation played during the live performance was a very proud moment in my career and the audience reaction to seeing this animation alongside the dance performance was amazing.
