This project was to animate a scene with depth in After effects by creating a foreground, middle-ground, and background applications could be animating a still image through projection mapping, a walk cycle within a horizontal scene, parallax scrolling (website/app), transitioning from one scene to another. A strong concept will take you further than precise execution. Consider using parallax to add value to an otherwise ‘static’ scene - add depth . The scene doesn’t need to be complex, it’s about creating the illusion of depth.


I decided that I really wanted to do a jungle scene with the sun rising in the background. I really love elephants, and I thought it would be really cool to have them walking through the jungle with the camera spanning out in order to create depth. This was a really fun project and gave me an idea for designing an interactive children’s book in the future.
