This motion graphic was our final assignment. The objective was to familiarize ourselves with motion graphics and After Effects. We were instructed to animate an event that occurs in our everyday life. I love to be immersed in nature as much as possible throughout my day. It allows me to think outside of myself. I chose to animate a person longboarding.
The project guidelines involved creating 2-D illustrations in Illustrator and then bringing them into AfterEffects for the animation part of the project. I decided to take the project a step further by downloading a plugin called “DUIK”, and learning how execute character rigging in my design order to achieve a more realistic motion of joint movement.
I had a lot of fun with this project. It was inspiring to see my design come to life with movement.
Primary tools used: Illustrator + After Effects
