Stu Maschwitz made this super-rad short film. The short is great (watch it full screen with your headphones way up), but the making-of is even more fascinating – full of in-depth After Effects minutiae, and filmmaking methods and processes.
The way I made TANK is a little crazy. I made it entirely in Adobe After Effects, with equal parts animation elbow grease and nerdy expressions madness. This video is part behind-the-scenes, part After Effects tutorial, and part therapy session.
