The Biggest Story is the animated version of Kevin DeYoung's children's book with the same name. With lush illustrations by Don Clark (Invisible Creature), an original score by John Poon, and creative direction by Jorge R. Canedo Estrada, this was an amazing project to be a part of. It was a massive collaboration between 40 animators around the world as we each took Don Clark's illustrations and brought them to life through animation.  I had a blast animating three shots in Chapters 4,5 and 7, which you can see in the reel below. For more info about the project check out Jorge's Behance project.​​​​​​​
The hand of Joseph's greedy brothers
Don's detail-rich illustrations we're so inspiring to bring to life– but so many plants, so many puppet pins
I think I had the most fun rigging/animating Mary's character
