Classroom Diorama Pitch

You Can't Win Them All.

 

I helped lead this valiant effort to win over a top-notch client for 90 Degrees West. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be. I'm still proud of the work we accomplished though, so have a look around! We built a classroom diorama populated with precious lil' mechanical students on dowels and a cuckoo-clock like teacher who whirs to life like magic.

I provided Art-Direction, character design and schematics, background art, and animation.

Role: Art-Direction, Design, Animation
