A team of After Effects, cel, and 3D animators were utilized to build robust stylized designs and art created and directed by Andrés Rivera. Maintaining the look and design of the artwork was of the utmost importance. My task was to lead the After Effects team in compositing the cel and 3D artist work for each shot of the four 15-second unique theme spots plus a few 6-seconds shorts. Their are shots that I was able to execute the cel animation entirely within After Effects utilizing the shape layers and set matte plugins. For  more details on the project visit:
