The Task

I took Character Animation Bootcamp in late 2017 at School of Motion. I learned the fundamentals about how to approach 2D character animation in After Effects.


For the final project we got a rigged character named Axel Dangerson, 3 backgrounds, voice over and the sounds to use. We would need to come up with the visual story, animate and put it all together.

What I did

For the research, I studied the most iconic scenes in Indiana Jones movies. I copied the essence of the scenes and simplified it for animation, as well as animated and put on the sounds.

The impact

My version of Axel Dangerson was well received between my virtual classmates and School of Motion community.
