The purpose of this video is twofold. I wanted to start promoting myself as a freelance designer, and naturally video is the most easily consumed form of information. However, the real reason I made it was because I really just wanted to play around in After Effects.
Tutorials always feel a little like following a recipe verbatim. You can learn to make a dish, but unless you are able to take what you have learned and apply this knowledge in other situations, you still don’t know how to cook.
Taking all the skills I’d learned through various tutorials, this was a project to call my own.
I’d like to leave a shoutout to Andrew Kramer, the genius behind VideoCopilot.net. Without whom I doubt I would have taken much longer to acquire the knowledge and skills I now enjoy.
