My second abstraction in After Effects was inspired by my childhood memories of driving through the underground tunnels of the Berlin highways (Autobahn). Since I was always in the passengers seat, I remember seeing the reflections of the overhead lights move along the windows. I’m not totally satisfied with results. I was hoping to push the three-dimensional qualities of the work by having the tunnel bend as if the vehicle is making a turn.
This is the best reference video I could find to support my childhood memories. Realizing how many passengers don’t know how to hold a camera correctly made me feel better about my digital work. (Schadenfreude)
