Looping Background Animated Gif in Adobe After Effects

I wanted to experiment with ambient logo backgrounds in Adobe After Effects, so I turned to my good old friend YouTube for answers.  I found this tutorial by swissives

This tutorial was great example of using the camera and it’s depth of field feature.  After completing the tutorial I swapped out the crosses for my logo.  I then exported the image as an animated gif in Adobe Media Encoder, here’s the final animation.

John Lewis Christmas Ad | A Mix of Hand Motion Animation Converted into Stop Motion

This could have been produced using standard animation, but the creative team said the hell with that lets go all out! For a much more complex and time-consuming hybrid of hand-drawn animation converted into stop motion animation. The work they put into this is insane! Everything in the background was made in real life not drawn or 3D rendered!!

Amazing work!
