Mad Men and After Effects

Hey! last week I took an introduction to after effects mini course. I though it would be a great idea to post about my first perception on this platform. We learned about layers, keys, and masks.
I think it was pretty sweet to learn about this things cause it really made me comprehend the 3d world better. I also valued the importance of learning several editing softwares because all of them correlate with each other. We also reviewed the important of color theory and designing in a project.
One of the things that I liked the most about the course is that we analyzed a couple of tv shows intro credits. For example, the tv show mad men.
This intro is one of the most important intros in today's industry. The reason is because it is beautifully composed and because of the complexity of the animation. this intro had several layers and effects that made it very pleasing to watch. Here is the link:
