Main Title for Amazon's The Tick (2017)
I am excited that my first post of this blog is to announce that I had the fun honor of animating a really neat title sequence for a super fun show.
Always a fan of freelancing for Shine, I couldn't be more pleased that they were the first to call me up a week or so after returning to the freelance life to work on this rad project. And I was extra psyched to try my hand at this style. The jaunty lines and shapes and playful animation was very satisfying to play with.
A neat part of this workflow was using DUIK for the first time. Considering the extremely fast turnaround I needed an easy to jump into IK solution for After Effects. I figured out the basics in a couple hours and was up and running... literally-ish I suppose.... -ish. I really couldn't have met my deadlines without it.
This was a phenomenally enjoyable title sequence to spring board back into the wide and wooly world of freelance motion graphics.
PS, the show is a really good time. Enjoy!
