Reach for the Sky
Revised version of the static scene I made previously. I animated one pair of hands opening frame-by-frame, then copy and pasted the hands onto the other two people int he scene, resizing them accordingly. I made sure to have them open their hands at different times and overlap each other to make it seem more realistic; after all, everyone has different reaction times. If it was a real crowd of people, everyone wouldn't raise their hands at exactly the same time in perfect unison. I think it looks a lot better this way and the action negates the need for the 'ease-in' zoom affect which I had on the scene before.
