AWKWARD ANIMAL 

Animated Ad Series

Producer, Co-Writer/Director

A series of animated mini shorts promoting Awkward Animal stuffed animal plushies.

I was approached by Wong Fu Productions and asked to assemble a team and come up with a concept for a series of animated mini-shorts advertising their Awkward Animal plushy line.  I devised the overarching premise of placing the Awkward Animals in human situations where they are humorously inept, and teamed up with my good friend and former classmate, animator Dennis Fries, to co-write and direct. 

We released four mini shorts to kick off Awkward Animal's Youtube channel, featuring all 14 of the currently existing Awkward Animal characters.

More recently, we released new short animations promoting Awkward Animal's Valentine's Day and Graduation sales.
