ABOUT

Take Me Home¬†was a series of shorts developed for Knowledge Network which featured British Columbian celebrities talking about their ideas of ‘home’.

 

For the segment on Vancouver’s poet-laureate, Evelyn Lau, I was contracted to animate an element for a key shot: A chickadee emerges from a birdhouse, looks at the camera, then flies away.

 

The bird was animated on ink & paper. Frames were coloured using patches of watercolour paint which were scanned and tracked to the bird’s anatomy in After Effects. The background was painted by Sherri Rogers, and the entire piece was assembled by director Jenn Strom.¬†Take Me Home: Evelyn Lau can be seen on the Knowledge Website.
