NYC Skyline

There's nothing like it! I wanted the beginning of this short video to feature a view from the George Washington Bridge. To make things more efficient (and keep to a simple style) I broke the image down into two layers: purple shadows and orange highlights.

The bridge is composed of a few more layers, and they will pass from right to left very quickly, to the point that those people might only be on screen for a frame or two.

The bridge pillars present an interesting challenge. In order to make them look realistic, their diagonal lines should slowly flip horizontally as they appear to move from one side to the other. I plan to resolve this in After Effects by connecting the two you see here to one null and then splitting the layers in the middle. That's probably too complicated to describe here, so I'll make another post on it later, but it's an interesting problem to face since it will likely come up again.
