The purpose of this assignment is to make a pop-up animation using After Effects. At first, I wanted to make a "book opening" animation, and the pop-ups inside. But it's so hard to do with After Effects alone. So I decided to make a treasure map instead, and put the pop-up animation on the map.
The longest process was to come up with a story instead of a plain animation only and finalize the idea. O yeah, making the falling paper looks realistic was also taking much time (it's pretty satisfying) I also tried some new AE plugins such as the optical flares etc in this animation.
Well, it was a fun assignment. I really like the result (and the Kraken LOL).
