LESSON LEARNED 10
One learns from hardship, not from prosperity.
In the same spirit as the story of the Endurance's hazardous journey, this project was a hardship to complete. My skills were just developing and the process was complex and tedious. My goal was to simulate the same visual style of Civil War documentaries by Ken Burns. To bring stills to life, I separated each image into three different planes, then used the After Effects camera to navigate through those planes as each of them was moving forward. I learned so much through this difficult process. In the end, it was greatly rewarding.
