When getting an assignment, I don't always know exactly what I'm going to do for it. I will start by finding music and the mood and timing will help me figure out the rest. This time, however, I had to come up with the whole piece before I did the music. I timed out the shots with a rough animatic and sent it in to Birthday Alarm. Andy Carlson, then, assigned my card to Mark Stephenson, a sound designer in the U.K. to do the music to the card. He did a fantastic job and it is a great example of how the web allows people from anywhere to collaborate! Enjoy!
