This intro sequence was created for a 2010 Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project submission. After the team came up with a general idea for a plot and feel, I created this After Effects-based sequence from concept to completion in one 40-hour span. The characters were all hand-rotoscoped, which took so long that the end result ended up a bit minimal in terms of polish.
It did earn us a tie in Best Use of Graphics, though! I like to convince myself it was because of my directing. :P
