Billie Jean Plexus - The King of Pop as an Abstracted Series of Points
This fun animation experiment called Billie Jean Plexus is by Colin Rozee and was made using the Plexus plugin for After Effects. It’s simplicity itself but is executed brilliantly. We can honestly say we’ve never seen a more lifelike group of points shuffling about to the king of pop.
In the Vimeo comments Rozee explains a little bit more behind how he did it: “I manually keyframed 19 mask paths in AE. There’s over 20,000 keyframes in the piece, but it needed to be that detailed to achieve the fluidity of movement…” So a lot of work, but totally worth it we think. (Source
