This is a show open I made for Iowa Public Television. It's for a children's show called "IPTV Kids Clubhouse." I made it in Adobe After Effects, using 3D Paper Jam extensively throughout the project. Having a folded paper look was my goal from the early concept stages, and 3D Paper Jam made it very easy to achieve this look. I was able to use it in different ways, from simply changing the direction of the folds, to making part of a popup book, and to pushing it back in 3D space to make it the walls of a virtual set. And being able to use it on comps allowed for an additional level of interest in the animations.
