Having been a motion graphics designer and art director for much of my adult life, I’d like to think I know good after effects work when I see it. This is GREAT after effects work. It uses a very innovative technique to achieve such a simple beautiful video. It took the artist well over a month to complete in his free time, but the results are worth it. Just fantastic.
This is amazing on so many levels. I am STILL trying to figure out some of the shots. It’s the Inception of Puppets!!
If you’re like me and love film, love special effects, love music, and love storytelling, then watch “Nuit Blanche”. It’s all of it. And it’s extremely well executed. As a motionographer, I marvel at their stellar work. As a director, I enjoy the way the short, simple story is told in an elegant and beautiful way. As an audience member, I am captivated for the entire three and a half minutes. Enjoy.
