An After Effects 3D pop-up story book with photographs I took while studying abroad in Italy and cut apart in Photoshop. The music was manipulated in After Effects to be the appropriate length. This version is four chapters long and each chapter has two pages. I plan on continuing this story book to include the rest of my study abroad, including places outside Italy.

This project is all about collaborating. The assignment was to use images that our class created for the previous assignment and make something new. My classmate and I worked together to choose the images, storyboard our world, and animate the pieces of our world. I animated the arms, the moon cycle, and clouds. In our classroom, we used my computer to start with the layout of each image to create our environment.
Skydiving Chives is about my character, Sir Chives, that I created for an assignment and one that I continued to work with throughout the semester. In this animation I use the illustrations I made in Adobe Illustrator and a photo I took studying abroad. I brought the seperate layers of Sir Chives and the photo into After Effects to animate him skydiving by Mount Etna - Sicily.
One of my first animation projects that required the use of a ball to display our knowledge of squash and stretch. My bouncing ball is displayed in a creative almost childish way because that type of animation tends to be my favorite.
