As the audience is walking in and taking their seats before being awed by Google’s 2018 keynote at their annual developer conference in Mountain View, California they are welcomed and entertained by the carefully curated branded animations on the gigantic Triple Screen at the Shoreline Amphitheater. A totally of ten 20 to 30 second animations with a core message of “Make Things Better” were the focus of the 20 minute segment, as well as transitional and wallpaper-esque animations to make for a seamless experience. By building a library of elements it allowed animators to quickly structure and formulate animations. Above you’ll see a selection of the overall work and below you will see specific sections I worked on.
Demo animations were meticulously timed and crafted to be used during the live keynote for the opening of Google I/O. Working on-site days before and up to the launch of the event was crucial for ensuring a proper execution. You can see samples of the demos below.

*The full animated segment of musical was animated by DeeKay which is in the top of this post in the video. I worked on the type animation to stretch and wiggle. 
The script Overlord was used to help with setup and animation for the entire project. Great script!
