Back in March, I was contacted by Sixpoint Harness Studios to direct and storyboard a commercial of my favorite show "Chowder" This was part of Cartoon Network's Get Animated campaign. I got on the conference call and they mentioned head bangs, ripped sleeves, sparks, flame, Angus Young, and I was thinking this will be a fun ride.
Here's the credit to the talented peeps at Sixpoint Harness:
Animation: James Krenzke, Mac Whiting, Jaime Velasquez, and Joe Kossuth
Layout: Chris Toms, Angelo Vilar
Background: Gerald de Jesus
After Effects / Editing: Tony Christopherson
Tony figured out how to do the texture thingy so we get the same look from the actual show. I was so excited that we were able to do this entirely in Flash and After Effects. Go Flash!
For fun I posted the animatics so you can see how things turned out from the boards...
...to the final animation.
