Boo Hoo


Starting today, I will be diving into the deep-end of Adobe After Effects.
I've got a month to tame the program and grind out a thesis film.
Holy-mother-of... what have I gotten myself into?


* biting cherry red nails in state of sheer panic *


My first AE lesson took place last night, and as my patient friends got me acquainted with the interface, I couldn't help but think "GAWSH... I'd soooo much rather manipulate actual cardboard pieces under a hot camera like THIS"...



... "than e-manipulate the pieces using bat-shit-crazy technology like THIS"...


Whatever. I know I need to just suck the eff up and figure it all out. I've got the software and I've fabricated most of the necessary pieces. It's high-time this analog-granny strapped on a pair of big boy balls and learn something new. Eew.

i LOVE after effects and you will too once you are a little more comfortable with it. I am sure Alexis and Jeff have shown you many resources for tutorials so I don't even need to chime in, but You can DOIT!
