After Effects: Animated childrens story


The last 3,5 month I´ve been working on an animation of an old childrens book I got as a kid. It was also my sons favorite story when he was little.

I recorded myself reading the story (in Swedish) and prepared the files in Adobe Soundbooth. The graphics is made in Illustrator and the animation is made in After Effects. A friend of mine, Daniel Åberg, made the music. The animation is 5 minutes 55 seconds.

The original story is called Fraidy Cat and is written by Marjorie Barrows and published for the first time in 1942. The Swedish version is called Räddis.
