A combination of 2D flash animation and a simple 3D set were combined to create a magical music box in the attic.
A set was built in Cinema 4D, combining simple lighting and animation of elements within the box. The final camera animation of the scene was output with position nulls in the box and camera data to aid in placement of 2D silhouette animations and camera tracking them within After Effects.
The 2D man and dog were created in Illustrator, animated in Flash and output as .swf. In After Effects they were used as alpha mattes to mask layers of a textured paper.
