Ta-da! Here’s animation #3 for Happify – this one covering the subject of mindfulness, and how practicing mindfulness could be one of the single most powerful things you can do for your wellbeing. Aaaaaand it has unicorns and rainbows in it! And mice and hedgehogs… what’s not to like?!
The majority of this project was undertaken by our co-founder Katy Davis. Katy worked with the audio snippet (spoken by journalist and author Dan Harris) to create a visual script for the animation. She went on to design characters and backgrounds, and then began to animate. Another one of our fabulous animators Kim Alexander joined Katy towards the end of the project with the task of in-betweening. I’m sure you’ll agree that she has amazing skill for flow and fluidity with character movement – thanks Kim!
As is normal with Katy’s work, this animation was created by drawing pen on paper. Each illustration was scanned, cleaned and coloured in Photoshop and then composited in After Effects.
