I wanted to create an animation showing the passage of time, focusing on one subject. I thought it would work as a loop, showing the cycle of construction to ruin, to restoration. Below is the window template I used for each scene and to compare the very last frame in it's most ruined state.
I created the animation in Photoshop and After Effects. Done at 8 frames per second, I created some of the animation traditionally in photoshop frame by frame, the curtains, rain running down the wall and the fire. Most of the other movement was created in after effects, leaves blowing in the wind, snow, rain, clouds etc.
