Buffalo Picture House - iJukebox Commercial Posted on 14 Oct 2011
I was recently contacted by Buffalo Picture House, a film production company based in New York City, to create the illustrations for their animated commercial for the mobile app iJukebox. While I've worked on several animation-based projects since, this was my first time doing production art for video use, and I learned quite a bit in the process. Fortunately my inexperience was no match for the awe-inspiring talent and amiability of the Buffalo Picture House team, and the commercial turned out fantastic! A couple stills from the video: a bored date (surely the bad music can't be the only problem?) and a sample of the interface.
Doing work for animation purposes has made me rethink my artistic process somewhat. While I haven't gone so far as to draw each element of my static pieces separately, it's certainly something to consider in the sketch stages; often small changes can give a composition focus and energy that it would have lacked otherwise, and it's great to have the ability to experiment with different layouts early on in the process.
