Video viral for Boradcast FCU

this week i helped a friend shoot a short film to advertise a week of events run by the christian union called broadcast. the film has to consist of people doing ordinary things with a cardboard tv on the head, i flmed it with a panasonic p2 and edited it in after effects, its not so much animation but it helped me improve my skills with after effects and dealing with video footage and sound.

with a little bit of motion done!

i added the finishing touches to my experimental animation today:
the sound of a bike wheel spinning and the start and end as the wheel speeds up and slows down, and a simple titel and credit page at the beginging and end made on photoshop,

i have now managed to export it as a mpg and mov file for assesment as well as exhibiting it in an exhibition at woodland campus next thursday run by the FCU here's a link:

here is what the graphics at the end look like
