This is my reel of Layout work on the TV series Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom for Astley Baker Davies. Both of these shows are made using Celaction software, using vector artwork created in Illustrator.
I've put this reel together to showcase my work, and also to help explain what a Layout department does (it can be hard to explain to those outside the animation industry exactly what it is that I do!)
Briefly, Layout is responsible for: translation of storyboard images into Celaction software, creating and timing out scenes; composing shots and blocking cameras; creating attachment links (parenting); key posing characters; designing effects (as there is no compositing stage, most effects are pre-comped during Layout); assemble a Layout timeline in Final Cut Pro; take briefing from Directors, liase with Design, Edit and Animation departments.
A good description of Layout is on the skillset site here:
When I'm not doing Layout for ABD, I freelance as an After Effects compositor - check out my comp reel here:
