Yup, I’m center-aligning headers and embeds now.

A lot of progress here. This is actually the third official draft, just sent out yesterday, after grueling trial and error. Maddy suggested editing the county map, and moving the website blurb to one corner.
Note to self: always check for the plus signs of cut-off text in InDesign. I somehow miss 1 or 2 every draft.

Remember this? Well, now I know what keyframes are!
Honestly, the technical side of Ae is smoother than I expected (at least the basics). What’s really tricky is actual composition. Animation is a really intricate science, and my first draft definitely doesn’t feel ‘right’ in terms of pacing and framing. I talked to Maddy about a blog post I saw which had some storyboarding tips from the Adventure Time artists.
It doesn’t help that I barely storyboarded this one, kinda just figuring out in Ae from the raw materials. I’d be very interested in playing with this kind of thing more and getting the hang of making stuff that feels smooth and balanced.
