“I love bringing the inanimate object to life.” – John Lasseter
An animation created from scratch using Illustrator to create the assets and importing them into After Effects to animate them. One of the things I’ve picked up from doing animations is that the best way to begin is with the actual voiceover. It will reveal all the pauses, moments to emphasize and the pacing. Starting to animate without the voiceover probably means having to redo a ton of work once you get the final voice recording locked in order to sync it all together. So, assuming the storyboard and dialog is all scripted out then begin with the voiceover before the animation, life is so much easier for it.
