COMPANY: Animation Collective CLIENT:Nick Jr LINK:State Department Website ROLE: Ink & Paint Artist (minimal) SOFTWARE: Animo, Photoshop DATE: 2007
Animation Collective hired me as a BG production assistant in the winter of 2008. On my first day, I was tasked with shading, lighting and rendering a Maya scene. That set the tone for the type of PA work I was being brought on to do. By the Spring, I had moved into render wrangling, scripting, modeling, lighting, and some rigging, where necessary. It was a blast.
This new series follows the life of Speed Racer’s son (simply called Speed) as he attends a school for racing. Here is where he makes new friends, Conor and Lucy, along with new enemies. Speed soon becomes the one to beat on the track and must overcome both his brother X and the evil oil tycoon Zile Zazic. Season 2 premiered on March 24th, 2011 with “The Return: Part 1” ~ TV.com
