Sarah Cook, pediatric cancer survivor and advocate created an animation to promote awareness of the Sarah Cook Fund.
You can watch Sarah’s animation Leading by Example: Battling Cancer and Creating Content that Inspires below.
Working closely with Toon Boom’s Lilly Vogelesang, Sarah embarked upon the creation of her first animation project using Toon Boom Harmony, a very touching animated video created to promote awareness for the fund. She started drafting her characters and learned how to build them, taking into consideration their movements and actions.
“I learned the Deform tools quickly. The deformation process is very easy to use and makes animating really fast. It is nice to see the original storyboard and then the final animation. I am very pleased I created something and that I was involved from concept to compositing and final editing. It was a wonderful learning experience for me, as I have never done animation before,” enthuses Sarah.
