Experimenting with Space

Downtime at the agency is pretty rare, but when it happens I like to explore and tinker with new things in After Effects. My most recent experimentation was with particle fields and star fields.

This was the result of creating different sized spheres enclosed within each other. When flying through it the perception of space is pretty trippy, and my goal was to make the feeling of physical size as realistic as possible. The stars in the background move very slowly relative to the inner spheres. And the last bit of fun was with sound design, and finding atmospheric sound effects that enhanced the experience.

“Hello Dave” is a reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey, of course.

Watch in full screen, if you dare.
