After Effects Animation


Slow Rings

Program: Clip paint Studio , After Effects


Progress: (Still under production)

During my time in Hong Kong City U, I enrolled in an animation class that focused on created abstract animation that synced with audio work. The final term project was to create a short music video using any animation method of your choosing. The audio (Slow Rings) was provided by ISAN, an English electronic music duo.


In terms of a technical approach, I drew out all the animations by hand on a digital drawing software and transferred them onto After Effects for composition. Because the audio track has a very soft and calming tone, I tried to used brush stocks to create organic shapes and textures.
