Elmo at the Zoo

archived work


This project for Sesame Workshop was taken on as an opportunity to connect education and industry.  Working with an extremely tight production timeline over winter break (a real-world example of why due dates are important), two graduate students and I created the animated assets for this series of live action footage of animals at the zoo that Sesame later produced. Some of the resulting shorts now have millions of views on Sesame’s YouTube channel. I designed and roughed out the animations, and my students cleaned and colored all assets.  Asset compositing was done by Greg Condon, final composite was done in-house at Sesame.
