An animation used to show how the partnership between UNICEF & Manchester United has made a tangible impact in Senegal.
After meeting and discussing the aims and issues of the project, I proposed a simple idea:
Things like partnerships, agreements and tickets to fundraising events are in some ways slightly, abstracted things. If they have any 'real' presence at all, it's mainly just as pieces of paper. The idea was to show how these things are transformed into real things that benefit people.
This is an early test I made.
Pretty basic storyboards, to help work on the structure.
I created some models in illustrator to later be cut into paper.
Turns out trying to make a football shaped ball fold into a single flat piece of paper is quite fiddly.
At the same time as drawing the models in illustrator, I brought them into After Effects to test timings, scales and to see if I had made any silly mistakes.
I got most of the models machine cut and felt smug because pretty much all the models fit and worked perfectly first time.
(alas I only have one picture)
While animating, some of these models required complex rigs to stay in place (like my finger or a scalpel).
Edited the film and sent it through to the sound designer to add the atmospheres, foley and voice over (which we'd recorded earlier).
While the sound was being worked on I did all the clean up (removing errors), rig removal, compositing and a little colour correction.
Then I had little a rest.
