“The Sun is Kind of a Big Deal” Book Trailer

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

For this non-fiction picture book trailer, we had lots of great cartoony art to work with. We wanted to keep it funny and exciting, but also show off the educational content of the book.

To animate the round planet characters and the Sun, we created 3D head turns in After Effects to enhance the spherical shape. We used the OC Eyes preset for the eye looks and blinks, and hand animated lip sync for the earth and sun.
