This is a teaser trailer for a kids tv show that we had in development at my previous company. We took the project to Cartoon Forum in 2012 and got a lot of interest, but unfortunately it failed to secure that crucial green-light from a broadcaster.
Our Creative Director designed the characters, and handled the lighting and rendering. I took his concept models, made them technically robust, rigged them up, and did the animation. The choreography of all of the action was a nightmare...you can try to plan as much as you like where each character will be (and what they will be doing) from moment to moment, but until it all comes together you have no idea whether or not you are leading the audience's eye around the action in the way that you intended. Overall it came out pretty well, and I achieved the 'calm', 'chaos', 'calm again' that we were after. Also, it stands up well to repeat viewings, as you can follow a different character each time!
