After Effects Assignment - "Hell" Demo

This is a short 20 second clip of my interpretation of Hell. All it is really is just a video of in my fireplace, but the orb effects are done using a 1984 Newvicon video camera. I video taped in a dark room and waved a flashlight around in the air. A characteristic of Newvicon cameras  is that they do this comet-tail effect that you see here. I always thought that effect was awesome.
