After Effects shape animation

We got a quick tutorial on After Effects and animating shapes. Interesting little program. I had a hard time with the anchor points and trying to get it to rotate right, I really have no idea how I did it, but kind of irked me when Lyndon shows me how I could've done the same thing using the pan behind tool, without having to input all those numbers on rotate/position.

Anyway, assignment was to introduce two different characters, have them interact and have one leave the screen. I did the typical violent cartoon animation...how interesting.
