Arcade:5K




  • MediaMonks hit 5K on their Instagram account. To celebrate, we created this short animation that I directed and animated.

    Sound was crafted by the amazing MediaMonks in-house team.




  • This was the early concept to pitch the idea.





  • First and super rough animatic. The final animation kept pretty much the same mood!




  • Character sheet. I ended up simplifying the clothing design to improve readability.





  • Finally, some proper styleframes!





  • Tying down the animation!




  • I created symbols to animate the rotation of the arcade machine and the character. Then I placed both elements interacting with the camera to create the final scene.​​​​​​​ For the arcade machine, I wanted to make the rotation without a 3d reference, to achieve a more imperfect look.



  • Hope you liked it!​​​​​​​ :)
