Ok so I have this presentation thing for next week, and I have to make a explainer video. I'm super torn between whiteboard animation (I can do this) and kinetic typographic video. I really want to try out the latter, but have no experience with AE. My school has almost any imaginable A/V tool.
Am I being ambitious? What are some good resources to learn to generate the video (like a 3-minute video) using AE? Are there any "shortcuts"?
