Vector Short Film ‘TANK’ by Stu Maschwitz, and ‘Making of’ Including Front/Back Visibility, Simulated Physics, Particle Generation, and More! | #AfterEffects #ArtTuesday
Over a year in the making, this 3-minute film is totally worth your time – and if you’re intrigued by how it was made (and you will be) there’s a 19-minute ‘making of’ video below that includes lots of tips & tricks and even a few freebie files for your own vector graphics filmmaking!
Introducing Tank, a new short film from Red Giant’s Chief Creative Officer, Stu Maschwitz. In a visual homage to vector arcade games of the 80’s (like Battlezone and Star Wars), Tank tells the story of a team of pilots that must take on a weapon of mass destruction in a battle to save their world.
Putting aside current 3D modeling techniques, Stu looked to the past and built the world of Tank entirely in Adobe After Effects, using math, code, and hundreds of hours of painstaking animation work.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
