I started out this project in an attempt to improve my animation skills –– I was familiar with the software, but was dry on ideas and what to do with it. One of the biggest challenges with this project was simply showing up every day for 25 days. By the time I was done recreating one animation, it was time to move on to the next. I understand that this was a rather unconventional and maybe controversial way of approaching motion design. However, I was able to learn quite a bit just by mimicking and "stealing from my favourite artists". I had to break down each finished animation into it's components, understand which parts were frame-by-frame and which were animated shape layers and finally do the work of recreating it. All credits to the amazing original artists I was able to learn from during the course of this project.
