Macabre Vignettes Commercial

I made this advertisement for a show called Macabre Vignettes in 2014, when I was employed by Ibex Puppetry. Macabre Vignettes was a Halloween-themed show that incorporated the art, sculpture, and puppetry of artist Tamara Marke Lares. I used her drawings as the basis for this video. I scanned them from her notebook and used Photoshop to remove the backgrounds and edit the flat drawings into articulated digital dolls. The next step was taking the drawings and backgrounds into After Effects, where I layered them within a 3D environment, animated the characters, and maneuvered the camera. I made the background for the text screens at the end by stirring flecks of material and ink within a water-filled glass.
