For the first time in 7 years, I am no longer working for a company with the word “Monkey” in it’s name. Monkeys have been been part of my life for years (I may or may not have been nicknamed “monkeyboy” in my youth), so it’s hard to move on. However, as hard as it may be, I have left Monkeyhead and started work at Deutsch LA as the Broadcast Motion Design Director.
Once there I hit the ground running, and, with the help of a few talented guys, was able to make these 5 spots for Snapple.
Budget didn’t allow for much 3D, only a tiny bit of 3D done for the ice cubes in Diet Half-n-Half, and the bottle cap in Real Facts, but the rest was all After Effects.
I’m pretty pleased with the results, and so was Deutsch, as these are the first in-house motion graphics spots they’ve ever shipped.
And yes, that is Saul Goodman.
