STEM to STEAM from J. Herron on Vimeo.

This is an animation short i made for a STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) to STEAM (A=Art) conference that happened here at the Rhode Island School of Design this past week, which focused on finding new ways for arts and sciences to collaborate and co-inhabit one another in education.
I decided to go with minimalistic character design and layouts to focus on a simple but fun narrative which could communicate the rather complex and vague idea of science/arts collaboration.
animation hand-drawn, effects and compositing done in AfterEffects, with sound in Soundbooth.
