After Effects: Christmas Promo

Sometimes I wonder if anyone thinks about the work that goes in to a promo. This 29 second ad took a few days to put together. It has over 75 layers which my editors friends would frown upon.
With each After Effects project I make, I try to challenge myself, to learn something new. I’ve worked in After Effects since 2002 and still don’t feel as though I mastered it. There is so much you can do with it, possibilities are endless.

Although my goal is to be a film editor and move away from motion graphics, it’s nice to spend time in After Effects and create something new.

Here is the promo I made for Christmas Girls Night Out.


    1. haha thanks! the cool thing now is you can find so many AE tutorials. I looked up “how to create snow” for this project. What many fail when learning from tutorials is eliminating their own creativity by copying the project to the details. You should spend sometime in AE, check out basic tutorials at video co-pilot. I think you’ll be great at it!
