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:

Working with a supplied script and voice over each animation was treated with a new style, these were developed in-house with the creative team and often began with a voice-over or rough storyboard of the key events which needed covering.

Alternative Paris was a great project which was build entirely within the After Effects environment and used keyframed characters along with pseudo 3D layering of 'Paris'. Particles and heavy grading were also introduced to help create this contemporary and alternative piece.
