Kafka on the Shore

Hey, first of all, thanks for making this class, it has helpe me a lot! I'm not new in AE, but I've always wanted to make something like this but never tried. So, when I saw this class it was like god giving me the sign:))

About my project:

I know it should have been about 'our dream weekend' or something, but I read it after I had done everything, so it's my fault!


'Kafka on the Shore' by Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite books. 

I took some elements (bridge, river, roads (actually almost the whole scenery)) from your example and added some other elements and characters from the book. At first I wanted to make it ON THE SHORE as it says in the title, but this one turned out better. 


Also, I changed lights a little bit. From the begining I added another spot light from above with an ambient light of 20%. By the end I keyframed to turn them off and only left the third spot light which casted some epic shadows! 

Oh and rendering took some serious amount of time.

Here's the final result:
