This is meant to be a template to showcase any retailer at this shopping center, I used text animation properties and lots of pre-comps. I learned a lot on this project. Music is some Django inspired tune found on freesound.com
I have had a long-standing interest in After Effects, well over 10 years, and only used it a few times. This project was created to pair up with some previously designed backlit ad cabinets. It was displayed on a huge TV screen in a shopping center in DC. The bounce part was done with expressions, it took a while to find the right look.
I love mugshots and ID shots, somewhere I found a collection of ID shots of people who worked on the atomic bomb project in New Mexico in the 40s. This guy’s pic interested me, some research showed that he was German, emigrated to the US to work on the project. Later, he gave secrets to the Russians and spent some time in prison. The pic was hand colored, and composited with an old scan from a Life Magazine ad.
Another composition of the street tar, words from the horse, and some cool old mug shots. I love doing whatever I want with the type.
A collage kind of thing that started with a photo close up of some public art, a photo I took of a Buddha statue, and some wood type.
Some more collage-ey things with type and maps and old images.
Playing around with found old type specimens and some other digital stuff, made into a collage of sorts. The type looks alms like it’s on old tissue paper, I love the transparency.
This is an often seen idea: stacked dwellings in a pile of some sort. I’ve wanted to make my own version for a while, and have several versions of this. It started drawn on paper, scanned and traced in Illustrator, then I added textures in Pshop. I’m mostly pleased, and may animate this some way.
Playing around with a random quote I heard on WTF podcast about Jimi Hendrix, I drew this out on paper, scanned it, drew in Illustrator, and added some textures in Pshop.
