Character Animation was my pursuit long before I entered the world of Motion Graphics - I love bringing characters to life whenever I have an opportunity!
- Little Airplane Productions (for Nickelodeon, CBeebies)
- The Onion
- Personal films
Here is my current Motion Graphics Reel. All work was done with After Effects, Cinema 4D, and sourced images.
-The Rundown with Robin Thede - The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore - ABC's "The Chew" - The Onion News Network - Prudential Financial - Flickerlab
Sarah Wickliffe Motion Graphics Reel
I am happiest when Directing a team of artists to realize a unified vision. To the left is my biggest Directing achievement to date, an animated Cold Open for the Season Finale of “The Rundown with Robin Thede”. My contributions to this included:
- Designed nearly all the characters and established the overall look
- Managed a team of 6 artists, some off-site. I animated Shirley Chisholm myself!
- Turned around an entire cel animated spot, from concept to completion, in under 6 total working days.
