The Marriage Ref


Here's a little animation jobbie I did at Passion Pictures.
It's the title sequence for NBC's latest entertainment show 'The Marriage Ref', produced by Jerry Seinfeld.
I got asked to animate Jessica, Jerry's wife.
It was great to figure out baseball moves, not immediately a sport I'm affluent in. But thinking about it...which sport is? :)
The animation was originally done in old fashioned 2D, but due to the workload I animated my scenes directly in Flash. It saved a lot of time in the clean up stage.
I'm happy to find out that the difference between the flash and pencil animation isn't too obvious. But if you want to make up your own mind, the whole animation is below, or you can find a bigger movie here.
