Home for the Holidays Sweepstakes 30

Yes, it’s not yet Thanksgiving but the Holiday spots are on the air, and we made one of ’em.

Pureworks Studio’s Victoria Jordan hired Declan last month for a quick-turnaround, mograph-driven 30-second commercial for the Delta Airlines & Radio City Christmas Spectacular Sweepstakes.

We knocked this out in less than a week taking our inspiration from Vicky’s designs for the program and adding an airplane than makes snow.

Buttons: A 5-Second Project

Every couple months the folks over at Greyscale Gorilla do a little thing called The 5-Second Project.

The idea is simple: make a 5 second animation, explore some new techniques, interpret the theme literally, figuratively, loosely.

The current 5-Second Project’s theme is “Buttons” and here’s what I made.

The music was created in ButtonBass, which seemed theme-appropriate. Except for the sound effects, which are me dropping actual buttons on a plate.
