Back in 2012, right before I started my stint as Director of Animation at Interface Media Group, my old pal and Creative Director at IMG, Dave Flood asked me to help design and animate these fun spots for Nat Geo Wild’s “Destination Wild Family Night” promotion. We created everything using Adobe Animate, even the backgrounds. Some final polish and snow was added in After Effects.
