My friend and fellow filmmaker, Jonathan London, is busy trying to launch a new L.A.-based web-series called “N.P.C.’s” (that’s Non-Playable Characters for all you noobs out there).
He asked me to help him out by making an animated bumper for the show’s intro. My initial try came off as too “dark and serious” for a lighthearted comedy series about comic book and video game nerds living in L.A. So, I took the same basic framework and tweaked it a bit. I brightened the colors–adding a more comedic vibe–and also included an L.A. backdrop with funky animated radials to give the whole thing more pop.
I’m quite happy with the new results. Check it out below.
