This has been a fun little project, every month Jet's Pizza asks for 1-3 little vignettes to add to their Facebook page to keep it lively... highlighting some event for that month. Initially, they wanted 2D hand-drawn animation... and as I have aged I have not had the where-with-all to do 2D hand-drawn cartoons anymore... its a LOT of toil! I designed JetMan in A:M trying to keep within their established design and added the SAUCY Rig to animate him, render with the toon shader... its working pretty good! Each month 2-3,000 people view the segments- and Jet's is happy with the turnout. They give me a very-very rough idea and the freedom to take it from there... I try to put between 4-8 hours into each and there is usually 1 easy revision round. The fun part is quickly coming-up with the various 'props'... like a stadium for football, a cupid, a basketball backboard, a lit-up Christmas tree, a 4-Corner Pizza character...!  LOADS of effects added in After Effects, and all music and sound-effects are Royalty-Free from the Youtube sound library.

Doing a 4 part 'comic-book' style animation for Jets... featuring Jet Man's quest for 'the Perfect Aloha BBQ Chicken Pizza'... I have all 4 parts done and will show them here as Jets Pizza releases them. A:M was used to keep Jet Man 'in-character', rest is a big After Effects build... HEAVY use of the 'Turbulent Displacement' distort filter thruout to gain simple motions. Here is Part 1:

Can't seem to link right to the video (dang Facebook!) so look under their 'videos' header.

Those look real good, Matt. 

 

I thought, "That's too good to be A:M's toon shader" but I'm glad to be wrong!

2nd episode is up now too... the 'plot thickens'... so does the pizza sauce! Actually, I render out from A:M with the toon shader, I make minor embellishments in Photoshop sometimes- because there are so few limited frames... and then I am putting a cartoon shader on again ovder it in after-effects, which can redouble the toon-shaders effect. I have to avoid some things like the pizza, which looks weird with a toon shader. PRODUCT IS KING!

 

This entire cartoon consisted of four 6-panel storyboards which the agency had produced. They had a video editor working on it in avid (wtf?)and they didnt like his results. I looked at the boards and liked the story with it's ups-and-downs and agreed to take over ONLY if I could recreate the art my way, which meant 3D A:M Jet Man, and they said yes. I did 4 episodes in 1 week, last week.
