Animation Principles

For our second motion graphics project of the semester, I created an apartment building scene. Using Adobe AfterEffects for animation is slowly becoming a little less hair-pulling-out-inducing, but it’s definitely still a challenge. 

I’ve enjoyed spending more time with Illustrator, though! It’s a welcome creative outlet, and relatively less stressful than some of the work in my journalism classes. With animation, you only rely on yourself to finish an assignment, while in journalism a lot of the work relies on outside events and circumstances. It’s nice to just sit at my computer once in a while and make some concrete progress on a project.
