MikeRoweworks 'Sweat pledge' Animations

In late 2018, I was selected to be a part of ASIFA-South's inaugural Incubator Program. This entailed the creation of twelve short stories for the social media accounts of Dirty Jobs star Mike Rowe, on many of which I aided with creative direction, story-boarding and After Effects animation compositing.

We worked for ten weeks in coordination with our commissioner, Atlanta production company School of Humans to create each set of storyboards from the ground up. After that phase of development ended, I joined the compositing team, and focused on placing finished assets (props, characters, backgrounds) into their designated spots and ready to be animated in Adobe After Effects

(LEFT) - A quick video demonstration of a scene I did compositing work on, from Story 3. For this scene, I was handed the finished assets, and lined them up, all timed up and ready to be animated. You can see a before/after of the composited scene followed by a clip of the finished animation.
