Finally finished putting this together. Learning After Effects has increased by orders of magnitude what I am able to accomplish, both creatively and professionally, and this is the first real example of that. I felt it was huge enough both as an accomplishment and as a thorough compendium of the various artistic media in which I work that I gave it its own page (and made it the landing!).
Look forward to a lot more animation in the future, now that my workflow speed has been drastically increased, as well as live action special effects shots for various clients.
Anyway... Stop reading and start watching!
I feel like a magician :)
