Now i know myself pretty well, and if i’m not going to write the first blog about the electric love production now, i’m not going to do it at all
So better get started! Since there’s not to much “real” production work to do for now…. i’ll let you have a look at my After Effects Comp!
If you haven’t seen it yet, watch the first teaser for electric love here.
As i mentioned in the post before, the trailer was created in Adobe After Effects. I started with cutting out all the DJs from the press material i got from the agencies. Every DJ has its own composition with the distortion effects for their revealing animation. I did the same thing for all the logos i got, added some graphical elements, and put everything together in one big main comp.
My two main comps, not including all the sub-compositions for DJs, Logos and backgrounds, have over 140 layers stacked together which means layer organisation was really important!
The whole thing took about 3,5 hours to render on a high end Macbook in 1080p25! An everage of 7 seconds per frame!
After the first trailer went online i started to create some more graphical elements we will need for future use in the production. That included a animated cornerlogo and a animated lower third.
All that stuff looks pretty cool when animated, but I’m afraid i can’t show you too much for now! So stay connected for the next few weeks!
The trailer also got a little sound mix i’ve made in Ableton Live. I know, its not the perfect software for the job but it was enough for some swooshes and beep sounds
Well i think that’s it for now… not too much crazy stuff but that’s all i have for you right now. I am already working on the teaser for Phase 2 which is going to be released on the 15th of february including some other stuff and some BIG names for the line up!
