Check out this book trailer I animated for the re-release of Ann and Nancy Wilson's "Dog & Butterfly" children's book.  The book is set to release later this fall through Huqua Press.  I used illustrations from the book to create the trailer, all animated in After Effects. Enjoy!

La Portée des Mots

I recently worked on a series of short films for the online component of the second season of "La Portée des Mots" (TFO).  The show features different musicians, my job was to illustrate and animate anecdotes from interviews of each musician.  This was another collaboration with the great team at Secret Level Films, led by director Will Cyr and producer Renée de Sousa.  Here are the films:

VM Farms promo and website

This promo was done a little while ago, and was really fun to work on.  A lot of the ideas came from VM Farms (and Mr. Matt O'Leary), and the ninjas you see are actually employees.  What makes this promo unique is that the concept was followed through to their website.  Near the end of production I was asked to created a few illustrations and animated gifs for the site.  I don't usually get a lot of time to work on a promo, and rarely get a lot of time (if any) for pre-production.  So it's usually near the end of production that I really get to know a character and start having more fun animating them.  This time I got to keep the fun going by continuing the work after production.

The promo is embedded below, but check out the website as well.  You may have to mouseover or click a graphic to see it move, but there is something on each page :)

Ta Parole Est En Jeu!

Check out these films that were produced by the awesome team at Secret Level Films for the NFB (ONF).  I created all of the graphics and animated a couple of scenes.  There are 13 films, depicting a French hero from each of the Canadian provinces/territories.  The films are part of this campaign:

"How it Works" animated promo for Endurance Lending Network

I recently did this promo for the great team at Funding Circle.   It was a lot of fun to produce and the client was really easy to work with.

This is what they had to say about it:

"Jodi's an awesome animator. She helped Endurance create a professional, yet playful "How it Works" video that helps our customers understand our business while reflecting our easy-going brand personality. Our team is thrilled with her work, and we have received a number of compliments on it. She is responsive and easy to work with, walked us through the whole process as first-timers, and struck the right balance of quality and affordability that we needed as a startup."

-Mitchell Fox, Director, Product Management

"Shineland" on Film Annex

I recently signed up on Film Annex, a site that actually pays you for contributing content.   And the best part is that they select what films get played as opposed to having anyone upload random clips about their cat.

The first film I posted on the site is the final film I did when I was in my fourth year at Sheridan College, "Shineland".  Check it out!

I was recently commissioned by Zak Profera to make this clip promoting that they are now selling Zak+Fox textiles through Harbinger, LA. I really liked the concept, and didn't hesitate to accept the job. The initial designs and storyboards took about a week and then about another week to complete the animation (rough and clean), all done in flash.
Here are some of the initial sketches that I did of Fox:

Interactive Fishy!

This isn't new, but I never posted it before. From time to time I dabble in coding AS in Flash, I did this in a few hours as a simple exercise. It was a lot of fun and rather simple coding, just 10 lines! Click the pic below to go to the webpage, move the mouse around to see the fish chase after the worm!

Old Painting

I did this painting a few years ago (2008) for my grandmother's 90th birthday.  It's acrylic on canvas board, done from a photo of my grandparents when they were young.  I'm getting back into painting traditionally so I'll be posting more (and hopefully better) paintings soon.  While this one captured the likeness and feeling of the photo, there are a lot of areas that need improvement.

Anyone But Me Series Finale

Sadly this series is coming to an end.  I think it was just getting started, but hopefully we will see more shows like this soon.  I think we have, and it's awesome.  Let's keep it up!  The series' creators have reached out to fans to help fund a final episode wrapping up the series.  There have been awesome prizes, and now if you donate more than $150, you will also get an original India ink on canvas of one of the two images below.

 Check out the show, and help out if you can :)

Hipsell Promotional Video

This was the fastest video that I've produced.  Just 14 days from start to finish, and the script was only finalized after the first week.  But it was also one of the funnest projects I've worked on this year.  A project like this can only get done on time if the client is willing (and able) to make the process as painless as possible.  A big thanks to Matt and his team for making this possible.

Charity Auction Ball Poster

I did this poster for the Kellogg School of Business Charity Auction Ball, benefitting One Acre Fund, wits, and wings. This is the third poster I have done for them, and this year's theme was "A Great Gatsby Gala"  It's too bad that the charity/sponsor logos weren't supplied without backgrounds,  but I still had fun working on the characters.

Flash Sketches

I've been sketching a lot in flash lately, sticking to a black and white, (sometimes) minimalist style.  Here are a few of the latest.  I've also been taking some of the sketches further and doing them in ink on paper/canvas. These along with a few more are posted here.

Portugal 2009!!!!

For the first weekend that I was in Portugal I was mostly partying, and for the last weekend I was sick and didn't leave the flat. But for the few days in between, I tried to make the best of capturing the beautiful sceneries. Here are a few pieces (not scans, just photos so some of the colours are slightly off).
