Two years ago I was hired to work on an animation project for house musician DJ Black Coffee. It took me over five months to complete the work. I hadn't ever done animation before, but was using a process called rotoscoping which I felt I could handle. I've never committed so many hours to one project. There were a lot of highs and lows, and it was difficult devoting so much of myself to something but not having control over the many moving parts. I had to put a lot of trust in other people and hope that it would all be worth it in the end. In hindsight I would have done many things differently, but one of the most important things for me as an artist is learning, growing, and getting better, and I learned SO MUCH from this one.
This is just a very short clip of the entire 14-minute animation. The full project can be viewed on my website at: www.jonnyruzzo.com
