George Eastman and the First Handheld Camera - Kodak

This is the project mentored by Marco Marquez in which we tell the story about historical figures, and my video is telling the story about George Eastman, the man who invented the first handheld camera, brought a significant innovation in the way people view and save their life, and founded Kodak.


All the materials and information are extracted from the documentary "George Eastman-The Wizard of Photography".

Mood board and Story board

Mood board and Story board

Making a mood board is the first step to create a motion video. The mood board includes the main information, the style, look and feel, and the typeface will be used in the video.

The second step is to create with a story board.

Character Design

Character Design

This is the process of shaping the style for the characters. From the sketch, I intended to created the flat design character version; however, the style is too modern and it is lack of the feeling of old style movie. Therefore, I changed to the 2.5D style which has half flat and half 3D look.

 Based from the look and style of the main character. I go on with the rest characters and all the elements for the video. They all have the 2.5D style. Also, I mixed the realistic photo to make them more real and cinematic.

Layer Process

Layer Process

This is the process to make the completed scene in After Effect. I used all the originally old background, text box, typefaces, and realistic elements to maintain the look and feel from the mood board.

Final Motion Graphic Scenes

Final Motion Graphic Scenes

This is the completed scenes for the video comparing with the original sketch story board. It is somehow different in some scenes since during the process, there is some changes to make the flow smoother and better. However, the video still successes in transmitting the story.
