Client: Comedy Central
Gabriel Iglesias Show Open for Season 2 of his Stand-Up Revolution Show was completely built from the ground up. I was given 3 musts: MUST have the VW Bug, MUST travel from point A to point B and lastly, MUST have his friend Martín included within the promo.
I started by creating 3 different narratives and the second story line was picked by the clients. From there, style frames for the look and feel of the piece were built. The talent came in for the photo shoot once a style had been chosen and stills were shot on green screen.
Following the photo shoot, the cleaning up process started as well as the creation and break down of the pieces for animating the backgrounds, the talent and all other creatures and people seen in the final version.
After this, I teamed up with Brandon Campbell to cover the considerable amount of animation needed for the final product. As extensive as this project was, it was a great learning experience since I extended my skill set to include directing a photo shoot with the talent. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun and I'm really happy with the end result.
