NIPSCO

We just finished this commercial for NIPSCO (Northern Indiana Public Service Co.) with producer Ross Woods at Scofield Editorial.  It was a really fun project with a great message about things you "shouldn't do blind"...  to raise awareness about calling NIPSCO's 881 number before you go off digging in your yard.

some fun design sketches by Soyeon...

...some samples from a live-action composite hybrid type piece that I just finished working on for Am. Greetings.  It was really fun, since I got to design and build the sets - as well as doing the compositing.  I'll post more details (and a link to the video) once the piece goes live.

A couple of stills from a pitch.  We didn't get the job, but it was fun to make some new illustrations.  It was also a super short turnaround, so we got a little help from our friend, Vanessa Sweet.  She designed the Santa character on the bottom image.  Thanks, VEE
