I hope you enjoy this format. I spent a lot longer on this video than normal. Part of this was because it seemed to need a bigger story and I went where it took me. Part of it was learning how to use programs like Adobe After Effects. I’m familiar with a lot of Adobe products, but After Effects is a lot more intimating to me, maybe because it seems so mind-blowing.

Whether you loved this or hated it, let me know in the comments!
