Founded in 2015, 2ndMilk is a non-profit organization committed to saving the lives of malnourished and orphaned infants in Africa and around the globe. They provide for the vulnerable and equip them with resources and knowledge to live a healthy life.
Chris Anderson brought me on to animate the first shot of the 2ndMilk animated PSA; the establishing shot looking over the milk from a bottle that a mother hands over to a child in need. My favorite part of animating this scene was focusing on the movement of the milk in the bottle while in motion. Some cel animation was used to have the baby's moving palm reach from under the frame and grab hold of the bottle. Some animation explorations are below:
This project was a lot of fun working with Chris and Leo on, and for a great cause too. If you want to know more about how you can donate to less fortunate kids, go to www.2ndmilk.org for more information.
