Authentic stories about people and their money. From the drama of debt to looking for loans, I collaborated with Cramer-Krasselt and Digital Kitchen to create this series of 30-second animated commercials for KeyBank told in the voice of consumers. They completed a larger campaign that included print, TV and a dedicated microsite.

Under the art direction of Cramer-Krasselt and Digital Kitchen, I created all of the artwork for the 5 spots and handed them over to DK to bring it all to life. Click over to this post for a sample of some of the original key frame drawings.
Below is the "animatic" that we made as part of the testing phase. The client needed to see a rough draft animation before committing to moving forward with the final TV spots.
