Our Roles

Myself and four teammates were tasked with developing one of five animations following a provided script from the client.

Text Animation

I worked as one of two animators on the project. I was responsible for animating text and speech bubbles, scene transitions, and running a final pass over all scenes.

Animation Final Passes

My partner’s role was to rough in animation and my role was to polish and add text. I worked closely with the other animator, clarifying and finalizing complex movements based on story boards, and taking on the more complicated animations

when necessary.
