Kobe Part II

In between commercials during the NBA playoffs, I found myself playing around and experimenting in After Effects. As mentioned in the previous post, I specifically started creating a motion graphics spot for Kobe Bryant as I was very inspired by his playoff run. I should’ve known that I’d be jinxing him from the moment I started the project and sure enough, the Lakers are down 2-0 to the much despised Celtics.  I decided to stop work on the spot after about a week and half of time.  My excuse is that I want to stop the jinx I put on the Lakers so that they can bounce back and start winning. However, the real reason is a busy schedule and a lack of free time. It’s a bit sloppy right now but check out the first mix below or click the vimeo link:

    Wii Yatani, I think your motion graphics on kobe is great! I have been playing around with after effects myself, hopeing to do something on the basketball team I play for, It will be for my Major project. I was just wondering what pulgins you used for your video, can you get them free? I am a final year student in a Interactive Multimedia Design course. I posted some of your work on my Blog. ( I have the link below if you go to week 7 on my design blog.)

    It would be great if you know of any good websites that would help me.
