Go on an adventure

Hi everyone and thanks for a great class, Jake! (It's me, the one viewer from Google Hangouts!)

I've done a lot of traveling so I decided to do a gif inspired by a cable car ride I did in Hong Kong. It's a moving travel poster.

Here is the image I created in Illustrator:

And here is the completed gif:

This is my first time ever using After Effects, so I'm just happy that I got it to work! The biggest struggle was getting the 3 cars going one after another. To do that, when they're 'off screen' they go down behind the landscape and circle back to the beginning. Maybe I'll refine their movements later as it's not perfect.

I did play around with animating the text, making it transparent and then opaque, making it wave, but in the end, I decided to keep it unanimated so that it doesn't draw too much attention.

Open to any and all feedback. Thanks!
