A DVD menu I designed and animated back in 2003.
I tried to reproduce the effects of the ink spreading on calligraphic paper.
Back then I didn't have any stock footage of ink on paper. so I made my own.
I played with Chinese ink and took a lot of photos of the different stages of penetration. Then I combined these in a series of crossfades en animated masks to achieve this illusion.
UK DVD Menu for 'You The Living', a 2007 Swedish Comedy Film directed by Roy Andersson. Created in After Effects. All footage & audio sourced directly from the film.
Created in June 2008, whilst working at Petrol, it was pretty much my first foray into the world of Rotoscoping.
During the making of this menu, I discovered the 'Cycle Mask Colors' option in After Effects, something which has made my (graphics) life so much easier!
