Working on the introductory video for the campaign was a lot of fun. I got to develop some nice vector characters and tried put a lot of transitions and movement into every scene.
I spent a bit of time rigging the characters to expression controls in AE. This made it a lot easier to drop a rigged character anywhere and just animate from one null layer.
I used freeForm that comes with AE to displace the head using the grid controls, and attached that to a 3D point controller on a null. That gave me a tiny bit of 3D movement on the heads which adds a lot to a flat vector piece.
