When I arrived back in the production department in Plains, PA., I was given the task of creating a 10 second promotional video for their website in regards to the upcoming tax deadline. I seem to always get these small projects because they are neat little task with a lot of freedom. I get to exercise my somewhat creative brain.
I previously worked on this project on week one because it was one of the available projects for me to do, but it was terrible and I hated it. I decided it was time to do redo it so I would feel better about myself and my advisor wouldn’t secretly make fun of me with his coworkers. “Look at this 10 second tax web promo Bryan Calabro made,” te he te he… those te he’s are what I would do if I was watching the original one I made.
My first task was to hit the delete button on my original version, I hit delete.
Next, I added text to my sticky note using the text tool in Adobe After Effects. I made an entrance animation with the cover of a tax guide on a 360° rotation. This rotation revealed my universally recognized little yellow sticky note; maybe not universally but definitely in our world. Aliens might use bananas for sticky notes for all I know.
My music was from an artist on Newgrounds.com.
I was happy with my finished product. Check it out!
