Animation Keys 

Here's a small look into the process of animation! Animation is such a collaborative process, especially in longer format such as tv shows and movies. Producers, directors, writers, voice actors, layout artists, prop designers, character designers, background artists, animators, compositors, etc all work really hard to deliver quality entertainment. 

I have worked on key animation for three seasons of Seth Meyer's animated show, The Awesomes. Episode 3 of season 3 was definitively my favorite to work on. I did key animation on this sequence of Hotwire singing. After the keys are approved, an animator takes the scenes and inbetweens all the movements including lip sync and hair follow through.
