Here is an example of the progress you can post throughout this course. A lot of this is included in the videos themselves but I wanted you to see it in project form too. Feedback, thoughts and comments are always welcome!
Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. This was one of my favorite films from 2014, and I think it lends itself to minimalist design very well. I'm going to try to take advantage of all of the openness of space in my design.
Here are some photos I pulled from for inspiration in my design. I decided that I wanted Saturn to be the focus of the design since it a) looks awesome, and b) plays a decent role in the film.
Here's where I landed after messing around in Illustrator. I know there will be more elements in the final, but I want to create them inside of After Effects.
Here's my final animation! I ended up changing the colors and composition a bit. The stars were much easier to create in After Effects using the repeater operator. I'm pretty happy with the result. Any comments/critisim is welcome. Thanks for looking!
