I'm working on a new video project and the client uses these vector shapes as part of their brand.

I want to animate these shapes, in a similar way to this.

Ideally I want to create a fluid type look, that's random. Similar to the Flurry screen saver on a iMac.

Can anyone give me some advice on how I can do this? Is there a way of animating this kind of shape using any of the standard after effects plugins, or are there any free or cheap ones you could recommend?

CS5 has Free Form included- you could use that to distort your shapes in 3D space, but I'm afraid that you will have to do this to each shape individually.
