3DAN205 Colour and Design major and final assignment.
Student: Ben William Lines
My assignment was to create an infographic animation. This was my first time in creating an infographic animation using Adobe After Effects. At the beginning of doing this assignment, I had no idea what an infographic animation was, even when we watched a few examples on Youtube. I suppose I had an idea of what it was, but I just still didn’t quite know what it was or how to do it exactly.
I started on an idea only to find out that I was was too literal and not quite what an infographic is suppose to look like or be like, so I had to brain storm again.
Finally I noticed in my overview that I needed to do an infographic animation on text that has been published. This is where I decided that I want to do a recipe….but what kind of recipe I asked myself. My wife is Gluten Free and she had a 4 ingredients Gluten Free recipe book. This is what I decided to base my idea and assignment on, so I chose to do Flourless Chocolate Cake.
I did research other infographic animations to get ideas of what people have done and it gave me good ideas. I created my own sound effects for this animation and they are mostly created by me the ones used in the animation.
Overall, for my first infographic animation I think I have done well and I believe I will learn from it.
