A still shot from my new animated car commercial promoting auto service from Milwaukee’s ADAMM new and used car dealers. I have video links for the spot at YouTube – http://youtu.be/shPajAfv8Sc and in the previous WordPress post on this blog. I created all the visuals from scratch within a 3d environment. The script and audio was provided by the ad agency. I handle freelance animation projects for the Milwaukee, Chicago Minneapolis, Eau Claire and Madison markets. Anyone interested in working with me on a future project can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-751-6026. Most animation spots run between $750 to $2500. Obviously, it depends on the style and content of the spot but this is a typical price range. There’s also additional samples at my YouTube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/StudioN51 or my website at http://www.studion51.com .
I just wrapped up this animated TV commercial for a financial client. All items except the audio and the 3 stock photos in the middle of the spot were created at my studio. Most of the ballons are the same ballon with the colors altered in After Effects. I then mirrored or flipped them with some extra key frame movements to give each one it’s own personality. The noise makers had the same treatment. While this spot went to the northern Wisconsin and Minnesota markets, I also do freelance animation work for the Milwaukee and Chicago television markets. You can read more about the spot under the Digital Animation section of this blog. I also have a few more samples posted at http://www.youtube.com/user/StudioN51?feature=mhee .
Currently doing some planning and storyboards for potential NFL and NFLPA clients. Project has potential to reach into the other major professional sports. A non-disclosure situation until it’s launched but it should be pretty cool.
The first frame of the medical animation showing a carpal tunnel procedure.The images are from a medical animation showing a carpal tunnel procedure.
The internal anatomy was rendered from scratch and imported into Zaxwerks Proanimator 3d. The external effects were rendered in After Effects and exported to an HD movie for the final output. While I had to keep this basic for budget reasons, as a medical animator, attention to detail is extremely important. I kept the nerves and arteries fairly simple so they didn’t take away from the procedure area. I also made the ligaments and the muscles one basic piece to keep the animation to a minimum. I kept some of the textures to a minimum. The smoother finish has a little friendlier look for a potential patient.

Industrial Print Ad. This was a quick ad done for WTC Machinery. This was to be text only. Using some of the look I created for the logo, I created a headline that utilized the no skid plating and the colors with a little bit of a worn look. While I have some skid plates from various photos I’ve taken, this one was stock. I needed one that wasn’t too beat up and the others I had were chrome plated. With some airbrushing in photoshop, I added some bolts to the corners and a small frame around the sides. The texture in the lettering came from a collection of old surface art that I used as an overlay layer. I received the ad on Friday afternoon and it was completed by Monday 2pm. Copy was supplied by the agency. You can click here to see more print ad designs.
