I’ve made a number of short Post Cereals social media animations for my friends at Public Works (in collaboration with Brian Hurley, Chris Henderson, Derek Bitter and others). These are intended as ephemeral content for various brands’ social media presences to keep them current. They are generally accompanied by copy-writing to give them some context, they usually are very short, and they often loop. Besides the long series of them that I did for Pebbles cereal featuring some anthropomorphic animated cereal flakes, I have done a lot of other ones for Pebbles and a number of other Post brands. Here is a sampling of some of them.
I had a fun, quick project last month doing a whiteboard animation for the i.e. network. Technically, I didn’t use a whiteboard, though… I used big sheets of paper, and shot frames of me drawing and moving around post-it notes (or did they move themselves?). It is always a treat to get away from the computer for a while and actually shoot some stop-motion animation. Rick Kupchella at the i.e. network provided me a script to work from, and gave me a generous amount of leeway collaborating on coming up with the visuals. You can see the results below.
