Ben Franklin Museum

Now that the Ben Franklin Museum has opened in Philadelphia, I can share some of the work I did for it.  Under the direction of Salvatore Raciti at MemoryCollective, I built several animations using Maya and After Effects to educate, in an entertaining way, the many aspects of Franklin and his impact on history.  I learned a lot about Franklin and enjoyed the process of animating the different pieces immensely.  I developed a great workflow to build these 2 1/2D animations, using illustrations by Katherine Streeter, rigging and animating them in Maya, then composting them in After Effects.  I hope to do more work like this in the near future and even have plans to try the same process but with paper cut-outs stop-motion animated.
