Ready to get strange? 

Of course you are or you wouldn't be here. In this lesson you're going to be breaking down an animation by Cyriak. He makes some very strange stuff that makes you take a second to scratch you head wondering "how the hell did he do that?" Sometimes the best way to learn about something is to try and re-create it yourself, and that's exactly what you'll be doing in this lesson.

Along the way you'll pick up a ton of new tricks for your After Effects arsenal. You'll learn a bunch of keying tips, tracking techniques, workflows for trying to blend images together in a natural way.
