If you are just starting with After Effects I recommend taking a look at Santa – Christmas Magic, Christmas Bobby 2 and Christmas Bobby. These projects are very easy to customize and require basic AE skills like importing image, adding text to a composition and rendering a project.
It’s well known that cartoon characters have a considerable effect on brand awareness and marketers use them as a vital promotional tool. The “Santa” projects are aiming to help you promote your company, products, services in an unique, entertaining way during the Christmas season.
