Chemistry Notes

"Nobody's perfect, so why do we keep searching for perfection?"

February 26, 2015

This is an animation that fellow animator Vanessa Branch and I created for the Experimental Animation course at Carnegie Mellon University.  We hoped to explore the concept of perfection, especially given our constantly changing perspectives...


We created this video with After Effects, Illustrator, and Premiere.  We both got together to discuss the story ideas as well as the character designs.  From the character designs we came up with I then created some of the final assets in Illustrator, especially the guy and the second girl.  To animate we used After Effects and the Duik script from DuDuf (, which allowed us to rig the characters much like a 3D animation.  Everything was then compiled together in Premiere.
