This project was a bit of a departure into the abstract. Unicorns was a show about financial “unicorns”—privately held startup companies valued at over $1 billion. This animation strives to show the moment one idea breaks apart from others and becomes something extraordinary—a Unicorn.
Above are a few of the roughs I put together when pitching this idea. Not quite put together in an organized order yet, but it’s already got the mood that shows through in the final. I was able to work with a sound designer to create the atmospheric SFX heard in the final; one of my favorites is a sword slash hidden in there! I absolutely love how this came out, and it was a blast to work on.
