Frontier Communications
Fall Cross Spots
I had the pleasure of being part of such a dream team directed by Run Kick Shout for Frontier Communications. I had some different roles on the project, involving storyboarding, character and set design, modeling and animation.

I'm so happy of how everything went, so I wanted to share some of the process here. Hope you can enjoy it!

Character design

The whole project follows a series of i-shaped robot characters that are in constant need of technology and fast Internet connection. 

Initially, given the premise of having characters with a strong i-shape siloutte, I helped with design. Here is some of the process.
The final i-People line up.
Some exploration sketches
i-Pet exploration
Creating the i-Pet character was so fun aswell. Designing a pet both looking friendly and tech is quite challenging, so I explored different shapes and tried also some quick "sit" animation.
Storyboard - Set design
I also helped in laying out the scenes composition, setting up camera shots, dessing up the set. Also modeling a bunch of the stuff there too.
Finally, I helped out on some of the character animation there. Personally, I loved animating iPet character, giving him a certain degree of curiosity and cuteness.
