BB8 NIXON x STARWARS

Animation of the BB8 Nixon x Starwars collaboration created at Already Been Chewed. Working as part of the in-house team as Lead Motion Designer, we designed and animated this spot to take on the characteristics of the beloved droid from the Star Wars universe. My role involved designing the BB8 device, styleboards, and animating the interior ship shots.
