After Effects: Logo Animation

This was my first project ever using After Effects.  We were asked to animate our logos.  I sort of built my logo’s into an animation that told a story.  If I had it to do over again, I would animate the actual creation of each logo, rather than try to tell a story using animation.

My concept here was to show that my base in my log came from a pyramid concept and that the crystal ball was like the sun, a beacon of light.  The rest of it was really just playing around with some effects in After Effects and learning how to use sound and the timeline.

The music was a short loop that I created using Garage Band.
