This course continues the work on our fictional trailer “Chutes and Ladders,” a creative concept that has a bit of a laugh with some of Hollywood’s current offerings. For this course, the profs and members will be creating effects, character animation, and doing the final grade on our :30 trailer promoting the fictional movie. As a stark contrast to giant killer robots — or battleships — New York City is “invaded” by giant smiling cardboard cutout characters who build ladders between buildings and run slides to the street.
Leading the course as co-director is Danny Princz, a NYC-based After Effects artist. Joining him are Michelle Higa and Chris West. Danny Princz (http://vimeo.com/rendernyc) is a freelance VFX/Mograph Artist based in NYC. He also directs and VFX supervises many of his projects. Danny was literally “born into the business” and was creating motion graphics for television by the time he was 7 years old. He has over 20 years of firsthand, inside experience in the commercial and broadcast post production industry.
Michelle Higa started her career in the animation trio Mixtape Club. The team won an ADC Young Guns award, a “Best Music Video” award at SXSW, and appearances on “Best of the Year” lists for MTV2 and Pitchfork.com. She also serves as the assistant editor at Motionographer.
Chris West’s (http://chriswest.tv/) projects have ranged from EA games, Nike, Sprint, Blackberry, Droid and for many other notable companies. Chris is currently a freelance compositor with some additional skills to boot. He’s done work for Psyop, Shilo, Stardust, Mass Market, Buck, Transistor and several other great studios.
