Main Title Design

This Course is a gold mine of informations. Thank you Ash Thorp for sharing your knowledge. I come out greater, with the eyes now wide-open. It was a fantastic adventure, and I can not wait to continue improve my skills by taking other courses.

I decided to put what I learned into a project, It's been 2 years I'm learning after effects. I'm still learning, and I hope this project achieved the standard of production expected.

I'm graduating from College next session, I studie in Web Development, but I learned 3d and composition software on the side by my own. I will send my portfolio in a couple of months, in hope to enter in visuals effects at the University. Screenshots are the design I developped for my portfolio.

Any feedback are appreciated
Again, thank you very much

Final Title Sequence Concept :

While you dive into nothingness, While your mind faint into darkness, your neurons extinguish... your interior is on fire. Your subconscious prepare itself for a long journey, other world open, where will you fall into next ?

I choose to analize two of my favorite tv series, Mad Men and Vinyl.

I learned a great deal and am happy with the results!

For Lesson 6 homework I chose to make the opening titles for the film 'Zodiac' directed by David FIncher. The software I used to make the 3D symbols was Apple Motion.

For lesson 2's homework I chose to make the title for the comedy film 'Three's A Crowd'.
