DIY Promo Video

I took it upon myself to do a little 1 min promo video which I have been meaning to do for a while now but was unsure how to go about it.

I entertained the idea that I could simply buy an Aftereffects showreel template and work around that but I think it ultimatley wouldn’t be me and reflective of my asthetic.

The below promo was shot on my iPhone 7, shortened and made black and white in Aftereffects. I then brought it into Photoshop where I drew on it frame by frame creating little animated squiggles which compliment and add more interest to the overall story of the video. Much more ‘me’ I think!

The music is a quick four chord progression which I also recorded on my iPhone.
