I’ve been busy the past couple of weeks on an animation project for a local studio. Outside my window, the colors have been changing from green to gold to red to brown. Every now and then, latte in hand, I’ll take a break and walk around the yard with my camera to try to capture some of the beauty.
Click the image above to see highlights of a project that I recently worked on. The animations are featured on several screens – one screen 26 ft. tall – at the Toy Halls of Fame at the Strong National Museum of Play. The work was done through Northern Light Productions over a 5 month period and I created over 5 minutes of animation for such classic toys as Raggedy Ann, G.I. Joe, Barbie, Teddy Bear and others.
Needless to say, animating such iconic toys was a dream come true and the project itself was a joy to work on. It was probably one of the smoothest projects I’ve been a part of. Not least of all, I got to work with some wonderfully talented people – friends both old and new.
We spent a few hours at the museum recently and I highly recommend it. Beyond the Halls of Fame is the classic arcade, the comic book section, Sesame Street and a number of other fun, interactive exhibits.
