After Effects tests 1

For this new brief I have been tasked to explore the feature of after effects and then using that knowledge create a 30 second click to promote charity of our choice.

I've completed a number of small tests but my best effects are smoke changing into text and creating a wave portal. I have added the videos of these effects below.

Final Google Doodle Tweeked

Over the weekend I improved my Google doodle which I have posted below.
What I have changed is the mouse cursor and I have made the barn door click able where you can now enter the barn and taken to a new screen

Finished Google Doodle Project

I managed to finish all the essentials for my Google doodle today, but over the weekend I want to iron out all the little errors and add improvements.
The biggest idea I want to add is the ability to click on the farms doors and enter the barn to play with more buttons, but that would require me design an entire room and code it so the user can enter and leave. But until the weekend comes around I'm not sure how much time I'll have to do it all.

Google Doodle Progress

I have almost completed my Google Doodle and the current progress of the interactive image is shown below

the constant animations are complete but only three of the buttons are working so far (and the Moon buttons sometimes glitches which I need to go back and find out what's wrong). At the rate this is going I should be finished by Thursday.

As I side project I also created an animated image of a ghost puppy using the transparency and glow tools in flash

Creating a Google doodle

I've started on my Google doodle idea and after a number of concept ideas I settled on the idea scarecrow field idea (which I posted below)

(this is a ruff design of what I'm going to do, the red text are click able events and the blue text are objects in constant motion)

My progress so far on creating my Google doodle is I have drawn the basic images and labelled all the separate layers so I know which is which, my next task is to colour all the images and then start transforming them into buttons and then animations.

Improving Flash animating and action script

I've spent last week and this week (thus far) continuing to learn to more about flash and experimenting with more action scripting.
Using action script I have created a number working buttons one of which is embed below.

This is of button which looks like an old man which will play a different audio clip each time he is clicked.

I'm going to try and find some more tutorials on flash and then I shall start my final piece for this project which will be this Thursday.
