Brief: Create a 30 second animated video using a catchphrase of your choice.
Response: This animation uses a variety of techniques, all put together in Adobe After Effects. The catchphrase is 'reach for the stars'. I worked with a camera layer and null object to create a 3D space to fly through. Expressions were used to rotate the planets and star. Stop motion photography, motion tracking, and masks were used to embed the star inside a subject's eye before he blinks it away. The animation offers a literal take on 'reach for the stars', but also alludes to the idea that the universe is within you, that you can aim high with the right attitude.
