Heartbeat Mountains

Heartbeat Mountains - student project

I am working on a 1:00 video to animate the title image for a sermon series entitled The Life. The vision is to have lines of a heartbeat monitor racing through various aerial shots of mountainous scenery. Here is the concept I'm working with: 

I did the above shot before I watched Jake's tutorial. The final video is cut to music, which complicates the animation process because I have to time up each blip to the sound effect and to the music. 

Here is my rough cut, before I added sound effects and before color correction. 

The final cut will have the sound of a heartbeat monitor timed up to the music, the blips will be the same rate throughout, and they will be colored to match each scene. 

I ended up making 3 or 4 versions of the final video, but this is one of those. There was a part where I missed the mask on one of the blips, which is disappointing, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
