A Day in the Life – #326 December 2022

This month, we pay a visit to director Hillary Bradfield, whose new animated short Reflect (part of the Short Circuit experimental shorts anthology available on Disney+) has gained a lot of attention on social media for its plus-size main character and its underlying message of body positivity.

Here I am drawing with my story assistant, Hashtag the dog.

These are the beat boards, vis dev and inspiration for the short; trying to keep structure and mood in mind at all times.

Heather, our ballet expert, helps us get reference for the perfect tombé.

I’m dancing in my brother’s apartment for animator reference (while he changes my nephew’s diaper offscreen)!

We were very thorough when it came to animating dance technique.

Here is the team, patiently watching me accidentally knock things off my desk while trying to describe a dance move.

Editing with Brian Millman.

Checking color in the nice theater with Heather and Winston.

We celebrated the final sound mix with a victory dance!
