Here is the final outcome of my Project.

First I took the photo below and edited it in photoshop.


I then opened the Photoshop document in After Effects. I was then able to move the text around by creating key points using the position tool located under each layer’s transform option. I did each letter individually then I applied a background. The background I applied was too short for the length of my animation. I then duplicated the layer and positioned it so that it played smoothly in the background. In the end of the video I duplicated the “O” layer in “YORK”. I scaled it to a smaller size, then scaled it to a bigger size while having the “scale” option selected. Lastly I added the audio effect of a crowd cheering.

The end result is this video

Below is the GIF version

Final Project Proposal – Animated York 50 Poster


For my final project my goal is to use the photo above and animate it in celebration of York College 50th anniversary celebration. I will seek to use the “YORK” text graphic and to create a different background.


  • “YORK” text graphic
  • a different background (whether it be created or imported.
  • a possible cardinal (bird)

Throughout developing this idea I have been referring to YouTube videos to draw some inspiration. I didn’t really find anything else that I’d like to incorporate into the project as yet. However, as i continue to create this animated poster.
