More 3D Titles anyone?

To remind everyone, since my woman started studying for her law school finals, a whole new world of free time has emerged for me.  So much so that I started learning After Effects.

Below is the product of my efforts. It seriously took about 12 hours yesterday to make these graphics, but that's because I knew nothing.  Next time, I'll get it in 10.  It's fun though.

It's a 3D Thanksgiving!

Hello Ronins,

Still teaching myself CS5 After Effects.  The footage below shows some of the moments of my Thanksgiving with good friends, Brian and Cindy.

We went to Off Vine, a restaurant located just off Vine.  Ha!  Get it? "Off Vine," "just off vine."  I know.  I'm not proud of that.

Anyway, their friend, Fanny, also joined us.  Good times.

So here it goes.  Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more After Effects debauchery.

This is why drinking and learning After Effects CS5 don't mix!

Hello Everybody,

I know it's been awhile since I've posted something.  There's a reason.

Aside from the day job, I've been teaching myself After Effects CS5.  It's pretty awesome.  I was already familiar with color correction, but I am trying to get a better understanding of motion graphics and compositing.

It's fun, but a bit time-consuming if self-teaching while sipping tequila.  But since my woman started studying for her law school finals, huge blocks of free time have emerged.

Anyway, here are two examples. They're pretty awful, but funny.

Note, I could have just written, "I guess they're awfully funny," but that would not have been good.  It would have been sad.  Real sad.

So check them out.  Enjoy.

Don't read too much into the examples.  I love my woman.  I don't want any harm to come to her.  I just thought it would be funny if she ran from explosions and snipers.

Here's what I did when I arrived late to a John Stewart rally in Washington D.C.

I had a great time.  Just me and my tequila.
