I collaborated extensively with the wonderful people over at Mighty Nice on this commercial short film. I was across the entire process from storyboarding, through to design, styleframes and to final animation.
I led the art style that naturally leant itself to 2D animation. For more complex shots with extensive camera sweeps, I blocked out the camera moves and simple primitives in 3D which I then hand-animated over. Here's a breakdown of a key shot I worked on.
Here are a few of the select styleframes I designed for this project.
