I was brought on by SkyPie to do rigging for the URLs of Summer shoot. We created stop motion gifs for a Jet.com promotion.
The fast turnaround schedule required me to think on my feet to bring objects to life. While the animator shot one setup, I prepped the next items. My job was to transform a regular object like a book into a posable action figure that could be manipulated by the animator.
Watch the “Behind the Scenes” video below to see some of the mechanisms I came up with.
