Here’s a brief video where The Wolfbird Studio’s Ben Erlandson walks us through an experimental process of techniques to create several different effects in the ongoing Animated Canvas project. This combines timelapse photography, illustration, and special effects (applied in AfterEffects) to create this particular aesthetic of the project.
Clearly there are many different thematic directions the techniques of this project afford us to take. Also, as you might have guessed, the compilation of these animated timelapse sequences can be quite time consuming! So, without any doubt, Animated Canvas is an extremely longitudinal project.
