Toon Boom software hired us to write and design an animated short to profile the power of their Storyboard Pro and Harmony softwares. Mark Simon wrote the short, The Key. We designed the old man and his grandson, the stars of the animation, to have a bit of an anime flair.
Mark Simon wrote, directed and boarded this short film for Toon Boom Animation, called The Key. It’s about a grandfather and his grandson both wanting to take the car out for the night. The animation, like many projects, was produced overseas. The frame-accurate animatic made the animation process smooth as glass. No more timing issues. Check out this cool project.
