Project Outline:

I was commissioned to work with the creative team at Lightbox to produce eye-catching and engaging animations / intros for a languages website. The mood and theme for the work will be portrayed in the introductory animation.The work varied from key frame character animation to short editing films.

The series of short animations introduced users to MYLO, a new way to learn languages. see mylo.dcsf.gov.uk for more information. The animations aim to give an insight to how best use MYLO, its resources and its key functions.

Project Experience:

This project used an already set style from a previous animation and took it to the next level. The  animation was built from the ground up using 'inverse kinetics' to help animate the puppeted extremities. This style takes an influence from stop frame where the heads and bodies jump to change while the arms and hands are fluid in their movement.

Other techniques were morphing for smokey particles and heavy grading adding film damage and deconstructing some of the cleanliness of the composite.
