It was exciting to have the opportunity to collaborate with Focus Features to designed and animated the teaser graphic cards that announced the sequel to the 2019 Downton Abbey film at a comic con event!
I remember vividly the process on animating the leaves with the CC Bend effects and rotation keyframes. There were a lot of cards and each card has different leaves placement to make the whole package look interesting. Timing of the card is everything where the leaves should reveal the type in a short amount of time while keeping a smooth speed for the animation.
