“Hey, Kiddo” Book Trailer

Concept, design and animation work for a Scholastic book trailer.

This trailer for a graphic novel memoir was an interesting challenge because it was our first that was based off interview footage rather than a script.

First we had to edit the author video into shape and then find images from the book to animate that supported his voiceover. As the book has a lot of serious and sensitive subject matter, we went through a few rounds to choose art that fit the right tone.

We used some paint stroke transitions at the start and end to emphasize the importance of art to the author’s story.
