CometRide App Introduction

This video was created as part of the presentation of the Comet Ride App. CometRide is a project aimed at improving the Comet Cab transport facility currently operated in the University of Texas at Dallas. CometRide primarily aims at resolving the issues caused by lack of information about the Comet Cab. The project which consists of an android application and web application backed by a cloud service, provides live information about the Cab and its routes to its riders.

The video is an adaptation of Zach Taylor's 5 Words Opener (https://vimeo.com/57538442) using the UT Dallas color palette. It was the first time I was using after effects and I wanted to try re-creating and put in a different context a motion graphics video I really enjoyed.
