"How the Proton Pack Works" Animated Video

My day job is as a motion graphic artist and I was inspired by all the amazing “science behind the proton pack” videos on the web and decided to make an abridged and comical version as a fully animated motion graphic explainer video. The idea being it’s from an old VHS with original 1984 marketing materials from a fictional franchise in the Pacific Northwest (where I live). It's by no means loyal to canon or the mechanics of the official props...just a fun animation from a fan.

I really enjoyed watching that!!!!! Nice work!!! I live in Northern Ca and I’m looking for a group to join. Are you taking new members by chance?

Ghostbusters NW isn't so much a group, as it is just...well...me. :-) I built the fictional franchise around the cartoon to give it context. But I am contemplating turning it into a full on group.

Let me know as I live in Northern Ca and when I say Northern it’s in the Sierra’s . I cannot find anyone who would like to start up a franchise. The nearest city to me is Reno.

Video editing thought. Something that always bothered me with the way people use the vhs filter. When you record in 16:9 high resolution I can tell it's not real retro. You need to film in or crop and down scale the video to a 4:3 resolution like 720×480 reduce the video to 30fps then apply the vhs filter. Rant over.

I started off 4:3 when building it, but opted not to, and took artistic license as 4:3 ratio didn't give me the breathing room I wanted for all the graphics involved.
