*Not A House*

Okay, so this is definitely not a house, but I just wanted to use this tutorial to get the hang of animating in AE, and this is what I had at hand :D

I mostly used Position for movement, but with the eyes things got a little tricky:

An eye consisted of three parts: an opened eye shape, a closed eye shape, and an ellipse that played the role of the lower eyelid. So the animation consists of the following steps:

- the eyelid starts moving up

- the opened eye disappears, replaced by the closed eye shape

I couldn't find a way to insert blank keyframes, so I turned Opacity to 0% to make a shape disappear. Pretty sure there was an easier way to do it, but it turned out fine in the end :)
