Friday! #friday #friyay

Another animation clip! We used a process called rotoscoping for this video, which means utilizing live-action footage to draw from. The director would send me the exported frames for each scene, I would trace over the characters with pencil, scan each frame, then layer up some color in Photoshop. It was a long process but I am happy with the overall look and that it maintains a handmade quality and doesn't feel too digital. Full video on my website!

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
