In 2016 I approached motion graphics for the first time, choosing to pay tribute to Obama’s inspirational victory speech at the 2012 presidential elections. My knowledge of After Effects was basic at the time so now, four years later, I decided to pick up the project once more and revamp it. I will include the previous version at the bottom of the page as a reference.


I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.

This project highlighted the major improvements I made during the years of work and study. What can be noticed the most is the timings of the animations. As this was my first project I had no deep knowledge of how to affect key frames using the graph editor.


Overall the choices of vectors used in the video were not effective at getting the message through, especially in the first half of the video. For my updated version I decided to include more photo realistic content, resulting in a higher impact viewing experience.
