“Swing It, Sunny” Book Trailer
Concept, design and animation work for a Scholastic book trailer.
Swing It, Sunny was a really fun book trailer to work on as it was our first graphic novel project. As we generally only have the cover art of books, it was a luxury to have tons of full-color artwork to choose from.
We were inspired by the graphic novel format to use some comic book panels as transitions, while keeping the rest of the artwork full-screen so we stay inside Sunny’s world for the trailer. Almost everything in this video was animated using the puppet tool in After Effects, except the dramatic dolly zoom done in Cinema 4D. This one came together quickly and we’re very pleased with the result.
