The Process

There were a few key storylines in Ted Williams life we needed to cover. After finding the select shots from the pile of archival footage and stills, we set about animating the stills, colorizing and shot extending the footage.

Splitting images and footage into layers allowed us to create and simulate camera movement coupled with puppetry and anchor point animation helped bring the edit to life.

A few shots utilized a 3D projection mapping technique which allowed us to build camera moves making the shots more dynamic. A good edit and score help round it out.
