Here's another attempt at another line on the Edward Snowden interview. I could see this simple animation used on Line 18: "What technology can ultimately provide, if we make sure that it works for us rather than against us, is liberty." The production notes I left on HitRECord suggest that this be used as a wipe with other images coming from the VR headset as it advances across the screen. This could also be used in the same fashion for Line 19: "People are more liberated to be creative."
I spend a lot less time on this one, about 20 minutes total, but feel like it's more in line with what they might be looking for and could be used in conjunction with a ton of other submitted animations. Sometimes less is more. And you can see that I took my own advice and went with what I already know, Photoshop and After Effects. I changed the background to green like they asked and outputted to the right size format this time. I also kept it simple and an easy to recognize image. Click on the image below to watch the animation. I feel much better about this one!
