SoarMA is a program to help families of seventh graders invest in their child’s higher education through a 529 college savings plan. Once the project was awarded, Shields created a schedule ensuring that we would adhere to the June 29th deadline. The project came in ahead of schedule. Based on the provided script a rough storyboard was sketched up and sent to the client. Once approved, characters were created and key scenes were illustrated in full. These were also approved and all of the scenes were built in Illustrator for our animator to work with. As the artwork was well underway we were able to source the translations and voiceovers. Working with our partners PACTV and VIAMARK / Drive80 was a great collaborative experience and the animated video came together flawlessly.
