"Steal That Style" - Branding

A title card for an integration series running on "The Talk" with Joyus.com. I typeset the logo first, then rigged the arm with IK controls. The entire scene is rendered in 3D within After Effects and uses 3D lighting on a multiplane layout with cartoon style illustrations. Directing the action and pacing of the lighting, camera, logo design, character animation, motion blur, music selection and sound design brings me a lot of satisfaction. I am working on even more sophisticated puppet rigs in the future. I have just about maxed out what can be done in AE, and now I am retraining in ToonBoom Harmony to create cel animation in the future.
