This piece was the launch video for Airheads, an online forum for IT engineers. Our team, led by creative director Zach Freyer and Art Director/illustrator Carlos Tsoi, developed the look for the main character, Todd, and transformed his personal reputation as an overworked and disgruntled network engineer into an empowered Airheads MVP.
A mix of textures and painted techniques were applied and scenes were crafted to deliver humor. You may even recognise Michael, the IT guy from the Good Move, Bad Move videos, in a brief cameo.
From script to execution, the project was completed in three weeks, and set the stage for future animated projects of this nature.
