Work done: Art direction, set design, stop-motion animation, and prop building.
We were brought in by director Dave Mcveigh to work as art directors for a Disney Asia spot for Art Attack. We’ve always wanted to work with Disney. The spot won a silver for the Children’s campaign category at Promax Asia.
We designed and built some of the props for the set.
Above is a a cloud used for a stop-motion animation segment.
We built a bird house wall. This is where all the Disney birds go when they go to sleep.
We got to work with Production Designer Kaloy Uypuanco (thank you!) and Director Dave McVeigh (thank you!).
Painted this with toothpaste!
We had a few hours to paint on a surfboard. Bucket list item – checked
It’s Disney – we had to make a wardrobe! with a little Happy Garaje flavor of course. This is in the garage where we built most of the props that were assigned to us.
Stop-motion sequence: moving fruit loops 1cm at a time.
II. Our work for Episodes of Art Attack
We got to do art direction duties for 6 episodes of the show. Part of the job was that we had to design the arts and craft activities using gradeschool-friendly materials. Like making Dory out of a discarded plastic water bottle or the Avengers as popsicle sticks and so on.
