Countdown is a beautiful short animation that deserves a look for the illustration alone.
Céline Desrumaux from London began sketching for the animation in May 2009. She did all the video in her free time for over a year. “Technically it was done mainly in Photoshop and After Effects. I used the 3D for some shots, sometimes I used the 3D and sometimes just the shadow produced by the 3D. All the particles were done in After Effects”
