I created a character from my logo in Adobe Illustrator and animated the eyes, ears, hair, and mouth in Adobe After Effects. I was going to add hands and feet but decided that it looked weird.
This is a collection of characters made with Trapcode Tao in Adobe After Effects. Animated lights and Cameras perented to Null objects were used to create the characters.

Most of 2018 was spent putting the short film “Spirit of the Woods” together, which was a lot of fun. After the short film was finished time was spent putting the DVD together for the cast and crew, which turned out great. Other things created in 2018 were animated gifs with Trapcode Tao including some Gingerbread men and a Caterpillar character. I also started playing with the kaleidoscope program Inspirit which can be hypnotic!
In 2019 I hope to make more animations and would like to make another short film.
Most of the animations were created using Trapcode Tao, with animated lights. Element 3D, Trapcode Particular and Red Giant Universe were also used.
Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat?!
Most of the animations were created with Trapcode Tao in After Effects, apart from the ghost that was made with shape layers.
My new short film “Spirit of the Woods”
Three friends visit Sham Castle and get transported to a dimension, where in the woods a ghost hunts them for their souls.
It was a lot of fun to make and I learned a lot in the process. A lot of the time the weather, the light and locations were against us but I think we did the best we could, and ended up with something that we can all be proud of.
