Working with a content creator for Fellowship of Friends making JRR Tolkien content with an emphasis on the Rings of Power. We wanted to create mystery but keep it in the analysis/commentary format. Maping Rhun was my greatest challenge and another chance working with 3d spaces in After Effects.
A composition I made to practice keyframing versus using a plugin or After Effects. It is filmed on a phone and meant to be tall to convey a modern feel. When I finished keyframing or tracking, I used After Effects for all the video elements. I wanted to use a lot of color and celebrate the start of springtime. Utilizing rotoscoping, I split the background and foreground and then split the background even further into sections for color blocking. I hope the themes of pop art are felt and appreciated.
On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. In less than three weeks, the conflict has made millions of refugees out of the citizens of Ukraine. Putin is committing war crimes as he marches his army toward Kyiv.
I worked pretty hard putting together this mini-doc. It has a soundscape, motion graphics, narration, and sourced video clips. I wanted to add a bit more creativity to the type of youtube videos you see that are similar to this.
War is a constant. It erodes all life. It even gives love a run for its money. This is an antiwar video from footage found on youtube and the internet. It highlights the refugee. #RefugeesWelcome
As for editing, I did utilize a lot of effects and sound but tried to keep it natural and not too imposing. I put together a cinematic feel with a call-to-action. Something an organization will use for the promotion of a campaign or cause.
