Juggling Jon, #52 of my #100videoclips project is an animated gif (and higher-res Instagram, below) of me keeping lots of balls into the air.

I used blended layers for the multiplicity of balls and hands. The tricky part was layering the juggling to keep the balls as evenly spaced as possible.

Also, the blend mode in Premiere Pro was set to Lighten in front of my body, but Darken outside the outline of my body, so an Opacity mask was used to keep the juggling (sort of) visible throughout.

Keepin' all those balls in the air…
