This weekend I was trying to decide how to kick off the inspiration section of my blog. There are so many talented After Effects users out there, where to begin?
I thought I'd kick things off by showcasing the work of Mark Coleran.
I first met Mark at After Effects West in 2001. After Effects West was organized by Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin of Lynda.com. Mark gave a presentation on how he used AE to create on-screen motion graphics for feature films. It was the first time I had seen AE used extensively for this application and Mark's work was truly inspirational, especially considering that he was doing this all in the days before expressions.
Check out his current reel. It includes work he did for The Island & Mr. and Mrs. Smith to name just a few of his credits.
