Tudor “Ted” Jelescu has done it again. He’s always looking for new ways to use software, with great results. Here’s a recent sequence that he created in After Effects, using mettle’s ShapeShifter AE.
More great work. A winning title sequence for an AEtuts plus contest. It was created using Adobe CS 5.5, FreeForm Pro, ShapeShifter AE, Trapcode Shine, Magic Bullet Looks and Particle Illusion.
Ted is a self taught AE artist. He started on a Flame and wanted to do the same things at home that he did at work. He used the regular FreeForm plugin that was bundled with AE CS5 to do a tutorial “3D from a 2D image” on the COW. Chris from mettle saw it, they started chatting and the rest is history.
Ted is also the creator of the Aqua Pack, a set of project files made for FreeForm Pro, which is sold on this website. They create moving 3D water from 2D images, all within After Effects.
With over 20 years of experience in production and post-production, both in the US and Europe, Tudor “Ted” Jelescu has an ever increasing collection of hats he had to wear over time. VFX artist, Special Effects Director, Producer, Creative Director, and Graphic Designer to name a few. From music videos to independent film, concert graphics to commercials, corporate presentations to advertising campaigns, the path was never dull. It all began more than 20 years ago, with pen and paper, and continued through architectural studies, film, photography and electronic media degrees. An apprenticeship in vxf and motion graphics at Cutters in Chicago resulted in many nights spent at the office replicating what the masters did during the day. Ten years as Creative Director with over 200 advertising campaigns, together with many challenging vfx projects, were spent in Bucharest, Romania. Presently, the Fjords of Norway inspire him to push the envelope with the new generation of 3d plugins for After Effects. He also actively provides guidance for artists all over the world, and just has a lot of fun with his craft.
