I was asked by my friend Ahn Sang Soo to create an opening piece for the LG Optimus Launch Conference. I was thinking of visual music when I created this piece. Jason Sikora our sound/picture editor did a great job of placing the sound to accentuate each drop of punctuation. The Animation was done by Java Scripter Josh Nimoy and was choreographed by Etsuko Uji . Enjoy.
Brad and Angie move over! Dora the Explorer has become such a worldwide celebrity that her series is now broadcast in more than 100 countries and has been dubbed in 30 languages. Not only is she beating out all of her animated competitors, her global celebrity status has earned her a place in the Macy's Thanskgiving Day parade with her own balloon! To help Nickelodeon celebrate Dora's tenth anniversary, we created a 40-second stop motion animated show open for Nick's TV movie, "Dora's Big Birthday Adventure", which will premiere on Sunday night, 8/15.
