Just like everything else in this absurd year, Hackers on Planet Earth 2020 was held online (and you can catch many of the talks from this year there)!

They also had a first for the conference — a five-day film festival / hackathon for folks to make short cyberpunk films on the fly! One of the categories was “Animation”, so go ahead and guess where this is going…

… I made a series of animated shorts!

I’m working on a more detailed after-action report, but for now I’ll just say that for starting from virtually no experience in Adobe AfterEffects, I’m thrilled!

You can see the other films in the festival on the Cyberpunk Now channel, which include some real gems (including a film with its own source code and github repo!)

What would you like me to work on for future efforts? I’d love to hear it!
