Ae & G. Blayney
In 1999 I installed a demo of After Effects and within two minutes of playing around, I had a huge rush of excitement when I realised I had found the tool by which I could show my imagination to people in a way more direct than I ever thought possible!
Tens of thousands of hours later and I am still playing around in After Effects and have produced work for Elton John, Batman and even projected onto Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Jubilee.
I get nostalgic when I remember how excited I was at the introduction of tools like time-remapping, motion tracking, puppet pinning and the roto-brush!
So Happy Birthday, old friend, here’s to the next twenty!
