After Effects: Real World Animations - Masks

This powerful effect in After Effects is such fun to watch!! Using masks to isolate the bouncing Ted, one mask fixed on the bed bounce area, the other mask is animated to the high and low points of his bouncing with keyframes (and then easy-eased).

No green screen at all! (Aside: interesting use of one string for head and one for each arm to give independence of movement ie looks alive)
