Between the lot of us here at Jewelboxing, we’ve worked on our fair share of animated projects, from putting together work for clients to carefully moving characters with our kids, frame by frame, in making yet another stop-motion Lego Star Wars epic. So we’d like to think that we understand animation and how much time, dedication and effort it takes. And because of that, when someone like Tommy Baldwin chooses to package his animation portfolio in Jewelboxing, we feel pretty honored that he’d entrust his years-in-the-making work within our cases. Here’s from Tommy:
“Well the project is a animation reel slash interactive portfolio that I have been working on for almost 2 years. It’s a simple narrative that displays my skills as an artist and an animator. The entire project from character development, to 3D modeling, texturing and animation was all done by me.”
“Originally I was only going to put the film on my site, but when I was finishing up the project a fellow coworker and designer told me about Jewelboxing. After poking around the site for awhile and seeing all the amazing results, I instantly knew that this was another way to show off my film and artwork. The layered design of the case really appealed to my 3D imagination. I loved that there was an empty chamber in the binder. I really thought about what to put in there before settling on a piece of copper with a common design element hammered into it. Another aspect of the case that I loved was all the visual space that I could fill up with my designs.”
“Most of all, in the world of animation, every book is judged by it’s cover, and I think that my cover really shows off what’s inside the case.”
Here’s to hoping everything is behaving as it should between every keyframe in New York, Edmond, Santa Cruz, Universal City, Hartford, Orlando, Roslyn, Tervuren, Alexandria, Troy Grove, San Francisco, Austin, Seattle, Milltown, Long Beach, O’Fallon, Brooklyn, Richmond, Corte Madera, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Edison.
