In this experiment I video recorded the projected half of the copy coming in and out of focus. Then I imported the footage into After Effects where I placed the rest of the copy on top and begun to animate it.
However, I am having a lot of issues with the projection. It comes into focus on the paper it’s projected at but doesn’t appear in focus as much when I film and manipulate it within After Effects. Instead it just looks like there is a drop shadow on the digital type. I am also having difficulty with the printed version because the projector needs to be at a 90 degree angle to not skew the type. So the camera that I’m filming or photographing with can’t be at a 90 degree because then it’s in the way of the projector. I’m also not even sure that I like my conceptual approach any more. At this point I’m ready to start from scratch.
