I created the animation for a producer’s explainer about the Summit of the Americas. The process began with a producer giving me a script. My colleague Tian Lan had already created a sting and studio wall design for the Summit of the Americas coverage, so I based the explainer style on this design, including incorporating the sting title/logo animation at the beginning. Working on a short deadline, I combined and edited stock vectors and photos to quickly create elements to animate. Using After Effects, I animated these elements to match the voiceover timing. The completed animation was used on broadcast television.
