CloudSpotter App Intro Animation

Animated intro for the CloudSpotter app, devised by the Cloud Appreciation Society as a way for users to learn more about different clouds and cloud formations.

 

The CloudSpotter app has been devised by the Cloud Appreciation Society as a way for users to learn more about different clouds and cloud formations.

We were asked by the app development agency to come on board to produce an introductory style animation which would help to explain some of the processes behind cloud formations and light phenomena.

We worked closely with the app development team to produce a storyboard and script for the video before developing a range of characters and environments in a style that was in line with their vision for the project. All the animation and post-production was completed by ourselves, with the narration and bedding track supplied by The Cloud Appreciation Society.

You can download the app for iOS through the Cloud Appreciation Society website. 

  • Cloud Spotters Sketches

    Initial Sketches

  • Story Boards

    Story boarding is a very important process within our animation. Once the story board has been sketched we then vector the illustrations to create a solid story board which best conveys the message of the animation.

  • Cloud Illustrations Friendly

    We had to design clouds that were correct to their actual form whilst also showing character and playfulness as well.

  • Weather Characters
  • Rainbow Illustration

    The use of characters helped simplify some quite complex processes.

  • Water Particles into ice
  • Happy Cloudspotting

    Creating a sense of depth within scenes was important to help explain the process of how clouds are formed.

  • Cloudspotter App Animation

    We had great fun working with playful typography throughout the animation.
