I went away on a trip and while I was gone my wife wrote a nice little thing on my white board that I look at everyday. I figured it was a great way to start this blog off.
TODAY RIGHT NOW MAKE IT HAPPEN
It’s something that get’s me pumped up and going, even on those groggy Mondays. It shouldn’t really be that hard but for some reason, inspiration can be illusive at times.
Inspired by the works of Beeple (www.beeple-crap.com) I’m working up to doing a render per day and I figured I would start with this little guy. I have also included the project file free for download (Free After Effects Template _ Electric 80s World).
I made this little render in Adobe After Effects with Video Copilot’s Element 3D and Trapcode Mir. Both are great plug-ins for AE.
I was playing around with bringing in vectors into E3D and for some reasons the map of the earth was what I went with. No reason.
The inspiration came from watching Halt and Catch Fire, a great little show on AMC set with an 80’s tone. Of course my render looks nothing like the HACF intro but hopefully the vibe is there.
The show has an EPIC intro and a killer soundtrack to boot.
