This animation was created with Abobe After Effects and Illustrator. The voice-over narration and theme music were captured from the television show. The idea behind the creation of the piece was to develop a stylized retro opening to the show that echoes elements similar to what designers of the period might design (like Saul Bass), but in a way that reflects the current trends in shape-based animation. The overall timeline from start to finish was about 2 weeks or about 80 hrs. Stills from the animation are shown below.
These final two stills were created to give appreciation to the underrated DeForest Kelly (Bones).
