Various animated projects

Over the years I've done some animation. Some cartoony and humorous, some more graphic design driven and straight forward.
I find that animation requires a lot of skills - graphic design, illustration, storytelling, timing and most of all, patience.
After Effects video seen in casinos and website for the live Las Vegas comedy stage show, "Reunited," starring Jon Lovitz and Dana Carvey of SNL fame.

 
Mars Incorportated has been making candy, food, and drink brands since 1911, and while at Total Spectrum Advertising I did a number of animated corporate videos for them. Many were of the internal safety variety.
I was approached with a script and the task to create a quick and humorous animated intro (with an existing character I'd created) for a crowd sourcing web site. This was the result.
 
This was a very quick animation that was embedded into an email blast for Adams Rite - The global leader in door opening solutions.
WhatsWhat.me (Beta), is a unique, “kids-only,” “no bullying allowed” social network for kids aged seven to thirteen. The program was built on the Drupal platform.
As mainstream social networks are targeted at adults, What’sWhat.me (Beta) was created to be safe, secure, and age-appropriate with highly sophisticated privacy and security measures in place, and in strict adherence to COPPA regulations. The site’s mission is to “teach and protect” children as they learn and practice positive online behavior.
PRICE Systems is a business within the RCA Corporation. It is generally acknowledged as the earliest developer of parametric cost estimation software. Now I had no idea what that meant, and the people at Price understood they needed to explain their services in a fun and entertaining way in order for the average person to understand their services.
Here's an animated intro (After Effects) I did as a freelance thing for my old ad agency. I left a few extra seconds on the end so they can have a bit of extra footage if they plan on transitioning to another video.
