My first experience with After Effects, using a clip of audio from a movie, in this case mine was from Forrest Gump, and we had to move words and sentences to the audio. We used these movements to portray the scene with just the use of words and motion instead of video.
Another experience working with After Effects, but my first with simple character animation. All characters and scenes were made in Illustrator. This motion graphic takes you into my morning swim routine I would go through every Wednesday of a swim season for the last four years. Waking up early, walking to practice, and getting in the water, all portrayed by a small vectored character of myself.
