New! Check out the full breakdown tutorial.

We initially began the process by storyboarding the animation with our entire post production team. The animation was divided amongst the editors and took 3 weeks to complete. 

For the Rube Goldberg based 'heart' we wanted to create real physics motion. It would have been impossible to do it with usual AE keyframes and Newton was the perfect tool. For speed and accuracy proxy objects were created for Newton and replaced for the final render. 

The heart itself contained over 500 layers and Newton was flexible and responsive in handling the workload.
