I got the opportunity to work on an animation promo video for Foreign Policy Magazine, to play at the beginning of their annual “100 Top Global Thinkers” forum.
This 2013 video would be made completely with still images – no video – so it needed a lot of fast and fluid movement to keep the viewer interested over 2 minutes as we introduced all ten categories and the faces of all 100 honorees, which included the likes of Malala Yousafzai, Pope Francis, Glenn Greenwald, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, John Kerry and others.
There was a quick turnaround window (5 days), and I worked a few late nights with a fun and talented team at Fluent Visual in Washington, DC.
The video got a strong reception, so well worth it.
