Boy, do I have a liquor-filled chocolate treat for you...

So you may not know, but I have a sister website called And Stuff Studios where we edit videos for companies and brands social media & ads promotion.

I thought it looked cool, so I created some of my own. 28 animated floating emojis to be exact. I also thought others may want to learn to do this themselves as well. So here's the tutorial.

Hope you find this helpful.
