Out of Jimmy's Head

This Friday at 7pm on Cartoon Network will be the series premiere of "Out of Jimmy's Head." I animated the following promo in only two nights...TIGHT deadline for a 22 second spot! Because the turnaround was so quick, I didn't have time to break the Flash models as much as we are doing on the actual show. Our production, even though it is symbol-based, is reaching a more fully animated look than most digitally puppeted shows. We're accomplishing this higher level of quality by breaking the character models and customizing poses as much as time permits. For example, spending a little extra time varying the structure of the facial features throughout key poses will give the animation a much more organic and dimensional feel.
