Orbie

Client, Project: Orbie for Orphans, concept and script development, visual development, art direction, character design, frame by frame and limited animation, post production, sound design (software used: Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Flash, Harmony)

Description: Orbie for Orphans contacted Timbuktoons to create a pilot episode for their 
animated curriculum in development that is designed with the specific and unique needs of orphans worldwide. Timbuktoons worked with Orbie for Orphans to develop the series (story, character design, art direction) and produce the 9:30 short. 

In production we used three pipelines for the different styled animated segments. The majority of the episode is tradigital frame by frame animation done in Harmony. Another segment ("Orbie's Story") was produced in After Effects using illustrator assets. The third segment ("Bo's Flashback") was symbol based animation produced in Flash.
