Samm's seminar left me feeling very depressed because the animations he showed us were incredible. So well though out, so much time and effort put in. So much talent. It just made me feel I'll never make anything that's worthwhile
My favourite of the day was a short animation by an Austrian director called Virgil Widrich.
Here it is. It was not made on After Effects. You can research it yourself but I will tell you that it was all done by printing out each frame then taking individual frames of those as origami and then putting it all together again on a computer.
It is amazing. The concept, the technique, the story. Just amazing.
