My Role

I came on board to animate a series of promo videos for the podcast. This consisted of two 15 second ads and three 30 second ads, for use across Instagram and Facebook. My main task was to add subtle motion, effects and voice/music visualisations and text, using provided illustrations.

I also made sure the layout of the animations worked across different screen formats (horizontal, vertical and square) so that they could be used easily across different social media platforms.

The illustrations for the 30 second videos were created by Ashleigh Jan.
The illustrations for the 15 second ads were created by Mata Freshwater.
