American Idol 2009

American Idols
As you may know by now, Last week I was in charge of the animated part of the Ford video with the Idols on the Wed evening result show. Many many hours of work for turning the 3 animations in time before the show aired in prime time, and all was delivered in time thanks also to the help of my good friend (and veteran animator) Steve Gordon.

For those who missed the video last week, here are a couple of links where you can watch the making of and the final aired video.

I am also posting some in-progress work to show what is behind some of the animation work done last week.

Hope you all dig it and be sure to tune in on Fox this evening and tomorrow to find out who is American Idol 2009.

Cheers,
Francesco

Hey Francesco, this is Drake aka Spideyman over on the Drawing board, I have been wrapping up school and getting a job so I havent been too involved, I saw your American Idol commercial the other night with two of my soon to be nieces and was happy to tell them I knew the person who created them. Anyways I hope all is well for you and just wanted to say hi.
