The Week so Far

Looking through the archives I found another webseries that got sidelined in 2014.  Dead presidents reporting the news that had occurred by mid-week.  A fun bit of comedy from the perspective of previous leaders turning over in their graves.  Shot on a green screen Wednesday evening and then composited in After Effects and released Thursday morning. The plan is to resurrect it with in the future. The majority of the motion graphic came from updating a portions of template from but each video required extensive customization.  We were leaning on providing a significant portion of the humor with the accompanying visuals  as time permitted.

I saw Mommy Biting Santa Claus

There is another version of this video but I decided I could do it better so I reached out to the Zombie Research Society at got permission to update it and include it on the 2015 Christmas Barrel Calendar.  This project actually took way longer than necessary.  There was a problem getting the original files so I had to scan the illustrations and then break them down into different layers to give it the assisted 3D look.  This was another project where most of the work was done in Photoshop but was worth the effort.
