I was commissioned by Ratchet Films to design / storyboard and then animate this short explanation of what UK-based music licensing company PPL does and how it works.
This is my cut - which differs slightly from the delivered movie.
PPL license recorded music played in public or broadcast on the radio or TV and then distribute the fees to performers and record company members.
It was a fun project to work on. Once we'd finalised a script the client was happy with I came up with a look and feel for the project and plotted out all the main points so we had a structured narrative. When we had sign-off on the boards I began to design, build and animate all the component parts and started linking them together so it all flowed as seamlessly as possible. The look and feel definitely evolved as the job progressed but the main narrative and imagery didn't change much from the initial boards.
