Over the break I made a whole bunch of After Effects video tutorials (among other things), as I talked through the various program features I noticed a reoccurring theme emerging. I would apply a tool or technique and then say something like, “of course if you use it with the setting too high, or you aren’t careful how you apply it this can end up looking very tacky, its best to use it subtly if you want to look professional.”

This piece from Quadroplastic covers almost the full rang of basic motion graphics features. A 3D space combining 2D, 3D and live action elements with lighting and camera moves. How easy it would have been to go to far, but the restraint in the application of the tools and the design result in beautifully classy piece.
