Silvery Cinnamon: Motion Graphics Reel

The animated hand in this I actually drew by hand. I started out with 34 drawings of my hand, chose the 17 best/most continuous, and then traced them into Flash frame by frame. I had hoped to use tweening but it just couldn't handle the complexity of the lines. In this I also use Motion particles, AE's Particle Playground, and AE's Expressions, which allow you to control your animations with JavaScript embedded in After Effects. The music is by me.
