Can you post a screen grab of the timeline and comp preview panes. Make sure the Illustrator comp is open, and select one of the problem layers and press UU to reveal all non-default property values.

Was the option for saving PDF information turned on in your Illustrator save dialog?
Open the Borden Sequence comp, make sure no layers are selected or all layers are selected, press the U key twice to reveal all modified properties of all layers. Enable the transparency grid in the Composition Panel to check for art on your layers. If you see art then you have to check the properties for the layers in Illustrator to see why you are not getting color. If you see no art then you should check the save options in Illustrator.
One more thing to check, select a layer in the Project Panel or the Timeline and then select Edit Original (Ctrl/Cmnd + e) and see what opens in Illustrator.
Let us know what you find. Post screenshots of AE with the Borden Sequence comp open and the modified properties of the layers revealed by simply dragging the screenshot to the reply field on this forum or if you used PntScn on a Windows machine you can just paste (Ctrl/Cmnd + v). Maybe we can figure this out if you don't fix the problem on your own.
I am having the same issue now.
You can't have more than one artboard in the Ai file. I know what you are thinking. Why I can't have more than one artboard?

Unfortunately Op never came back so we will never know what was the issue. you should work with the presets (that has 2 Artboards and this is a good thing). even if you are not, make sure you prepare your Ai file prior to importing it to Ae. Preparing and importing still images in After Effects
Try going to Composition > Preview > Play Current Preview. That seemed to work for me. I had the same problem, hopefully this works out for you.
Try this and if the situation is for you also
Here is it
Check all the active layers are placed in artboard or not, in ai file by opening in illustrator.
select all the elements by marking around the objects using move tool and then drag them to the art board.
Then save it and reimport the newly saved file with your desired comp settings in AE
Have a nice day!!
I had the same issue and it was fixed once my caps lock was turned off.
