Hermeneutic spiral

Animating to a script.

Rather, understanding develops through a series of encounters and re-encounters that are conditioned by context, purpose, prior knowledge, and personal experiences and perspectives.

Untangle animation

Learning to use trim paths.

This was my first try using trim paths to animate in Adobe Aftereffects.

Continuity animation

Perfecting the technique.

For this one I built on my understanding of trim paths to compose a much more complex animation. I drew letter-forms with extended and connected paths in illustrator and then imported the paths into Aftereffects. After many hours building the infrastructure and playing with the percentages to get the timing to look snappy, I decided this isn't a very good demonstration of the principle of continuity...It is however an appealing technique that I might have to try again under different contexts.
