This was a two minute animation that I worked on at Blur Studio. Over the course of two weeks, a team of 4 of us cranked out the design, illustration and animation for this piece. Myself and freelancer Andrew Hildebrand of subpixel.tv brought the various hand drawn animations to life via After Effects and Cinema 4D.
Sometimes the shorter projects are the hardest! This was an ID I did at Blur Studio for Disney XD. We actually did a number of variations, but this one pretty much sums it up. The bubbles are Trapcode Particular and the caustics are Trapcode Form.
This is a new spot introducing a new look and feel to TV Land Prime and a new tag line: “Feels Good”. The spot was a challenging task of taking a great edit, and mapping that to a series of cubes in a vast 3D world. In the end, we opted for a simple approach of letting the edit stand on its own, with some graphics interspersed, and saving most of the animation work for the final tag line. The client wanted lots of color, so I opted for a bit of a mid 80s Robert Abel feel with the logo resolve.
