Project Two: Abstract Montage
For this assignment you will use the special editing options in After Effects to create an abstract montage. ( keyframing, 3d illusions using “camera” and “lighting”, generated effects, etc. ) Recognizable images may be used but the emphasis will be on the nature of form. The goal here will be to create a mood in a one minute piece, more poetic than didactic. Short tests will preceed the project with demos in class.
