After Effects


 This is the first time have used after effects, I'm still getting to grips with it but looking forward to developing and playing around to create some animations.


these three little animation were all made using Adobe after effects in workshop sessions, it was our brief introduction in to using the animation software, i helped me loads learning the basics of after effects an was a starting point for my project

A Rayogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a photo-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light. The result is a negative shadow image varying in tone, depending on the transparency of the objects used. Areas of the paper that have received no light appear white, those exposed through transparent or semi-transparent objects appear grey.

Test Strip 2,4,6,8,10 seconds 

I exposed the this at 15 seconds 

This was created by have my light timer set to 2 seconds, i started off with the scissors closed an slowley opened them up after every 2 second exposier

This is a very similer rayograham in the sence i used the same method but just rotated the scissors 

simple 12 second 

Here i developed my picture by painting on the developer using a paint brush, i love the outcome of this rayogram 

These 3 are a set, the chain, paper clips and broken glass, all exposed at 20 seconds 

Playing around with the developer, splashing on to see the effect i got, i like the outconme but its not 100% clear 

Movement, 2 seconds each, in total 14 seconds 

Painting on developer where my focus was 

keyhole, key and lock, a set the each other

I plan on using the starting music, 6sec to 36 sec as there is a start middle an end in this section an feel it fits well, this is a basic storyboard for my animation but i hope that you can get the idea an see what i am trying to achieve. 


A few pages out my sketchbook about my music that will reflect my animation 

My 3 words about my music that i will base my animation on

Animation Ideas?

here are a few basic story board plans and ideas 

ball like figure on a journey 

new york city in line form, animating to the music 

character and sound wave
