So instead of drawing out my characters I decided to draw them all on after effects. I even made two different scenery. First I decided to make a forest. Then I created a city scene with buildings and clouds using some shapes in after effects.
This is my version of the same movie poster I just uploaded the assets onto after effects. Then I set them into layers.
I kept it simple with the movement in the of the clingy and created key points in the position and rotation of the slingy.
One of the most difficult parts was to get the knob to move around in after effects. I created a mov file just for the knob moving around. I copied and pasted it into its one composition and linked them together at the endpoints to make the file even longer.
I also wanted to do something different from the photoshop version of the movie poster. So I added a cc split (effect) to the head of the jack in the box and added a cc split 2 (effect) to Chucky so that it looks like they were talking or in motion.
This is the final gif of my after effects movie poster.
Some of the problems I ran into while doing this Movie poster is when the jack in the box head opens his mouth you see chucky’s shirt. But, the cc split on chucky is perfect because it exposes the black background which resembles darkness when he opens his mouth.
For my final project I want to create a short scene using after effects.. My idea is for a kind of scene that you would find in a south park episode. But, my character will be a superhero ( cause i always wanted to make my own superhero).
One of the things i like about south park is how none of the cartoon are ever not in motion giving it a more life like persona.. For example even when the cartoons aren’t talking the eyes still place and move around. Even the background has movement throughout the scene i.e. the clouds moving from one side to another.
I want to create my own characters by scratch, hopefully I will learn how i could draw my characters and import them onto after effects. Also i want to create my own moving backgrounds.

For my photoshop movie poster i will be using Chucky’s childsplay movie poster.
These are my assets for the movie poster.
I redid the background of poster and decided to edit out the ” Sorry Jack.. Chucky’s back ” heading.
I kept the little space under Chucky because it was also part of the jack in the box.
This is the part of the poster i decide to go altogether and delete.
My idea for this is to make the jack and the box knob to twist and have chucky or/ and the clown to move around so it looks like the jack in the box is being winded up and chucky is about to cut the slingy. My initial idea was to have chucky actually cut the sling but it wouldn’t be possible because it would need to be 3d for you to actually see the scissors.
My final version of the Photoshop version of my movie poster. So I decided to go with the spinning knob and I had the slingy and the head of the jack in the box move rapidly. I wanted it to move more rapidly and not give off the appearance of it moving with the knob.

I chose to do chris tucker doing his scarface Impersonation in a movie called money talks.
I think i did a good job syncing the text with his mouth movement. i kind of cheated with a part of the scene because you can’t see him talking so it didn’t have to be exact.
One thing i wish i did do better was getting a higher quality video because when i turned it into a gif it looked weird.
