Before the Golden State Warriors' championship 2014/15 season began, First Person was asked to help create the video they played before every home game and I was given the opportunity to join the team.
The references that were pulled included tons of cel animation, flash-based effects, and other hand drawn goodies, so I jumped on the opportunity to draw some of the effects I loved drawing growing up. Almost all of the graphic assets were drawn using frame by frame animation in Photoshop with a touch of After Effects lovin' thrown on top. We did all of our own rotoscoping and tracking too.
Below you'll find some initial style frames, then some process GIFs.
