STUDENT HEALTH 101

Goal:

Create an animation with general tips & tricks for adjusting to college life. It needed to cover a variety of topics while remaining short enough to easily digest. The video would be sent to school's across the country so the overall tone had to be professional yet playful.

My Role:

  • Illustration
  • Animation
  • Audio

Typography

TF2


TF2 is a typeface based on the font from the video game "Team Fortress 2" and has a naturally friendly feel to it. Side note: Team Fortress 2 is a great game.

Scenes

#ffffff

Red & purple were reserved for the characters while each scene was given its own background color to make the video vibrant and to clearly distniguish one scene from another.

Illustration


Flynn is the happy, go-lucky main character who you follow throughout the video. Durf is the not-so-confident, naturally botched looking fellow who has a second appearance in a future animation. This video really tested my ability to give characters emotion and make them feel alive.

Audio


The original music was a royalty free song called "Carefree" and although it was friendly enough, it wasn't as exciting as I'd envisioned. In Ableton 8, I added some percussion, a few synths, and some chords at the end to give the tune a little more oomph.
