Kansas City Union Station Interactive Timeline

Union Station in KCMO will be celebrating its 100th anniversary soon and this project was to celebrate this occasion by pairing students in groups of two and giving each group a decade to focus on while still covering Union Station's history. My group had Union Station's history from 2000 to the present. Upon researching this time period it became apparent that the station had turned it's attention to becoming a culture and educational hub. 

Our timeline is based on the concept of the community coming together to celebrate the pursuit knowledge as our timeline was designed for use by multiple users of all ages. Community comes into play as multiple users can use the timeline simultaneously, while adults can also snap-off the peripheral windows to drag them lower so children can interact with them.

From this project I learned: 

1. After Effects will tease you by working all day and then pull the carpet out from under you when its time to render.
2. Illustrative process. I learned how my drawing style can be used to target a wide range audience. 
3. More Adobe After Effects skills and sensitivity to timing!
