American Greetings/ Prius - "Nature's Harmony"


This e-card was part of American Greetings' Summer of Harmony e-cards for the Toyota Prius. I didn't know this was up until I recently found it through the director, Chad Koch's site.I thought the hummingbird and the deer stumbling away was a nice touch--
This was a little while ago, but I remember listening to these SFX tracks over and over to catch the different animals. I still hear birds whenever a Prius honks.

In hindsight, I'm not sure what sound that tortoise would have made....
though possibly "Kow-a-bunga"

See the card HERE.

"Drop In to Win" - Wienerschnitzel Promotion

This project for Wienerschnitzel through Adville USA was less storyboard heavy but required a process of sequential storytelling nonetheless. It features the vintage character of "Wienerman" as a throwback to the old mascot and the restaurant's 50th anniversary. Winning game pieces win one of fifty FIAT 500s.
Some of the ads are airing now on TV accompanied by that "Little Bitty Pretty One" song-- which after syncing animation to after hours on end, is thoroughly cemented in my head now~

Try your luck yourself at for a limited time--
Character turnaround and key mouth phonemes
(like "Eh", "Ah", "Oh", "M", "Oo", "Fffffff...")
