Using the background I created in Illustrator in After Effects. I animated clouds moving in from the left and right side of the screen. I used a snow effect to add interest.

This is a screen shot from a ping pong animation I made in After effects. The rectangles are animated up and down whilst the ball is animated across the screen to mimic the classic game.

This is a screenshot of a video made in our motion graphics session. I used multiple video elements layered in a composition to create a futuristic video.

A simple train created using basic 3d shapes in Cinema4d. I have used cubes and cylinders, and the human and landscape objects. I also created some simple materials to add to the objects.

I created a wine glass using a path I drew out in Illustrator. I used this with a lathe NURBS object which rotates the path to create a 3d object. I also created a glass material to make it look realistic.

My progress with my 3d model of a person. I used the knife tool to add cuts and sculpted the model using an image as a reference. I only need to model one side as a symmetry object duplicates the other side.
