High Flying Easter Animation
When Hallmark approached me with an Easter eCard project, they provided pre-made storyboards featuring a bunny riding an egg-shaped hot air balloon. My role was simply to bring the idea to life!
It’s fun, simple, and has bunnies, so I— hopped— right into it! (sorry, I just had to)
Fun fact: While designing the hot air balloon Easter eggs, I decided to color one of them a plain pastel yellow to contrast all the other patterned eggs. My project manager at Hallmark thought it was funny that I left one of the balloons a plain, regular egg, and thus a happy accident occurred! 😆
The animation was made in Adobe Flash using a mix of frame-by-frame and tweens, while the backgrounds and candies were colored in Photoshop to achieve that soft pastel effect.
