Have a watch of this presentation. I've been looking at 2.5D for a while and this simply inspires me creatively. Has anyone worked on anything in AE like this? Thoughts?
There were some nice parts but way too much wobbly camera and tilt and swing for me. I know when a sequence is working well when I can turn off the sound and it's still tells a powerful story.
Absolutely the best photo montage using 2.5D techniques (or The Kid Stays in the Picture) is from the documentary Last Best Hope. Here's the sequence from that (unfortunately I can't embed it) Last Best Hopt Photo Montage
Here's a little more about the production. Last Best Hope: A True Story of Escape, Evasion, and Remembrance
Simply mind blowing for this novice. Thanks for that.
when you cut out everything and place in z space. it looks better than cutting out one or 2 objects.
