Thank You Machine

I joined the Zendesk animation team as an extra set of hands on three super fun newscast style videos. These were created to promote the Thank You Machine—a website for sending thank you cards.

The opening newscaster section was animated by Tori Cincotta, and the following sections by me. The mouth rig used for lip syncing was also built by Tori.

I used Joy Sticks and Sliders to rig the face of the main character, as well as the little turtle in the background.
