This piece showcases some of my work integrating Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator.  The animations feature vector-based, rasterized, and movie objects.  The “US map” animations use the depth-of-field feature in the After Effects camera.  The “Earth orbit” animation also creates depth from a flat movie by changing its perspective and adding a lens distortion.  The shadows on the text “satellites” and moving starfield sell the perspective.
