ABOUT

The Canadian Lung Association commissioned filmmaker Jenn Strom to create an on-air promo for their yearly Christmas Seals Campaign. Jenn contracted me to complete five shots of character animation for the piece.

 

The characters and backgrounds were designed to reference vintage stamp artwork, and animated to give them a hand-made feel. Shots were blocked out in TV Paint, then drawn and inked on paper and shot using a homemade camera rig. Colouring was done using automated actions in Photoshop, and the characters were combined with animated backgrounds in After Effects. The finished elements were then assembled by the director into the completed piece.
