Project Description

Use one of the four principles to create your own animation!

  • If you're a more experienced animator, try applying each of the four principles to your own work — whether it’s creating something from scratch or using it in an existing project.
  • If you're new to animation, either:
    • Download Emanuele's Adobe Illustrator character and import it into After Effects to get started with creating your own character animation. 
    • Or download Emanuele's Adobe After Effects demos and play around with them to experiment with the four principles.
  • Whether you create a full character animation, or a quick demo to test out one of the concepts, upload your work! We're excited to see how these principles help you create lifelike animations.
