My friend and I completed this video for the San Francisco indie-rock band LoveLikeFire for their upcoming single "William."
It was done in a month using Flash, Photoshop and After Effects. We drove to San Francisco and took photos of the city to use as bases for the backgrounds.
Once we had a shot list written out, we went about making a cut of the timing using the raw photos. After we had finalized the shots we were using, we then cleaned up and recolored the photos in Photoshop.
Using the timing video as reference, the characters were animated in Flash over the final backgrounds and exported in layers out to After Effects. Some shots were finished all in After Effects, some all in Flash; it was a very shot-per-shot project, but also a ton of fun to work on.
Be sure to check out LoveLikeFire and their music! They are incredible, and if you are in the CA area they will be playing shows all through January...[link]
