Save the Date

I mentioned in my previous post that I’ve been working on a lot of various projects as of late. Well, I’m happy to report that I can finally show one of them off.

To those unaware, I proposed to my girlfriend of over two years a few months ago in Walt Disney World. As a result, we’ve recently been thrust into the brutal task known as “wedding planning.”   I wanted to do something a little different when it came to a save the date, so my fiance suggested that I animate something (instead of the ole’ photobooth magnet dealio).  Well, not one to shy away from a creative project, I spent the last few weeks animating a short little motion graphics piece to be eventually sent out to friends and family. The result can be found below.

I had a lot of fun with this and took the opportunity to experiment with some new techniques. The majority of the video was built in After Effects. But, I managed to composite a few elements from Cinema 4D in there as well. This was my first time working with cloth, so I had an interesting time (euphemism) learning the ins and outs of that.  All in all, I think it came out really well. Enjoy!
