Professional Work - JP Inspiring Knowledge by Trix Productions (January 2014)

Another professional work! This one was made a few months ago, but only now have I noticed it's online so I can share!

The client was JP Sá Couto, a portuguese technology and education company that is best known for its lap-top computers designed for young students. The production company was Trix, a well based portuguese company that have been in the market since 1996.

I was in the middle of my most stressful time in Animation Mentor Course when I was invited to work on the project, so in the beginning I was really thinking that I wasn't going to be able to be a part of this. My only option was to try to work from home as a part-time animator. I was very glad Trix allowed me to do this! The animation production in this short took a little bit more than a month, but I was only able to work on it for 4 weeks, around 25 hours a week. It was a real pleasure to work with the crew (that I met once a week at their studio) and this well organized production. I think it was their biggest CG production!

Although I couldn't spend as much time on this as I wanted, since I was animating my own shots for school, I surely did learn a lot through this project, mostly in tools and organized production pipelines, which for me was a first experience! I thank João Sacadura, Manel Sacadura and Rita Amado for calling me in for this project!

We were three people animating the characters and I animated 6 shots, so it was a small contribution =) Here's the final video.

Hope many more to come!
