Chapter 21. Animated Filmstrip

This chapter was inspired by a project I created for a client who wanted to portray their company's history chronologically in brief snippets. I used After Effects and Photoshop to create a storyboard that illustrated my idea to animate a filmstrip passing across the screen. The strip speeds by, stops to play a movie within a film frame about some company milestone, speeds up until it reaches the next milestone and its movie, and so on. It's a rich effect and relatively easy to produce with After Effects.

This chapter's project demonstrates how to create a filmstrip that contains video inside each frame instead of still images. You'll animate the filmstrip so it alternates between fast-forwarding in a blur and slowing down to provide glimpses of the videos playing in its frames.
