In my final project above, I combined a bunch of 2D animation techniques to create movement by using a lot of 3D layers and precomps of the various locations. I then keyframed the movement by using a null attached to a camera and set the movement so that it told the story of the music video. This is the first 30 seconds, but I'll continue working on the video after this class ends. I hope you all enjoy it!
Lots of very challenging ideas and AE processes tackled here.
Needs finesse but you bit off quite a huge chunk with this, on the technical side.
