With our new birthday eCard you can help that special person feel like a baby again with one sip from the fountain of youth! We got to sit with Nate to find out a little more about his process:
1) Did you come up with the concept, art and animation for this eCard?
I designed the characters, environment and animation for the card, and it was a blast! The concept for the card came from another JibJabber, Jeff Gill, who did the animatic for it.
2) Where did you go to school and when did you graduate?
I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Master’s in Animation last year. The day after classes ended I packed my car and drove to LA to start working with JibJab, no joke!
3) How long have you been at JibJab?
I’ve been at JibJab since September of 2011…holy cow I can’t believe it’s almost a year already, time flies.
4) Where is the Fountain of Youth located?
I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you, and that’s not really the point of the whole fountain is it? The location featured in the card is based on a lake back in my hometown in Ohio, but I like the idea of it just being some rusty old drinking fountain in a high school hallway or something.
5) Would you drink from its’ waters?
Are you saying that I look old? OH GOD DO I LOOK OLD?!?
