Deus Ex Machina is a digital media group project done using Photoshop, After Effects and Final Cut during my second year at the University of Lincoln. We had to think of an original story and then each group member had to animate a chapter by themselves.
The story is about a serial killer who is put to death in the electric chair. Instead of his soul departing peacefully it escapes via the cables of his execution devise and lingers on in cyber space. It is then up to a computer geek who is sucked into his computer to stop him before he can kill again.
I know it is an insane story however the point of the exercise was demonstrate how to use a variety of design/editing software to produce an digital animation.
