This is a made up exercise in creating a certain mood in After Effects. In this case my key word was "Calm".

Here is a reference shot of the raw (unedited) footage of the snail that I used:

Here is a list of things I did to end up at the result shown in my video:
* Tracked the shell on the snail
* Used tracking data to attach pin points to snail
* Text and line animation
* Colour grading
* Added a Video copilot "Optical Flare" lens flare in the right side
* Added Trapcode "Particular" particles to create an environment effect with diffuse bits floating in the air
* Added the royalty free music track
