If you are just starting with After Effects I recommend taking a look at Victor Promotes, Bobby Promotes and Bobby Promotes 2. These three projects are very easy to customize and require basic AE skills like importing image, adding text to a composition and rendering a project.

George takes part in another project – App Promo with 3D Character. It’s well known that cartoon characters have a considerable effect on brand awareness and marketers use them as a vital promotional tool. The “George” projects are aiming to help you promote your company, products, services in an unique, entertaining way.
