Christmas Presence! A New Sermon Bump

For our Christmas series, we went for a Cartoonish-looking identity.  After quite a while, we came up with a design, and I put the design to work.  Everything in me wanted to use the charlie brown christmas album for the bg music, but alas I could not.  So I found a nice free royalty-free christmas-y bg music from videocopilot’s blog.

*Short Pause and Plug*
If you’ve never been to Video Copilot.  Stop. Go now.  It is quite the useful resource for aftereffects lovers.  Not only can you find tons of stock resources to use, but the tutorials are quite insightful for beginners or even people who think they are good (like me, ha).  Chances are, you’ll find a video copilot technique in some of my stuff.

Back to the Bump.  It took quite a while to figure out what I was going to do with this bump.  Looking back, I can still see a lot of room for improvement and additions, but every good video guy or gal constantly critiques their own work.  At around 200 individual layers, the Christmas Bump finally came together.  Needless to say, I should have combined a few of the layers into an individual comp to make things a little simpler and shorten the 10 hour render (A little ridiculous, I know).  It came out quite nicely and is a lot of fun.  Check it out and tell me what you think.
