It was a huge privilege working on various sequences for Disney's 'The Naughty Nine' (2023), a Christmas film about a group of kids on Santa's 'naughty list' who decide to embark on an adventure to receive the presents they think they deserve.
I began by crafting customized letters for the title, then proceeded to design 3D models and animate the bulbs. The design is inspired by an 'elven' lettering style.
The opening sequence narrates the story of Christmas lights, typically stored away, magically coming to life during the season. They spread magic powder like wands, making the title appear.
My role was: Concept, title design, 3D modeling, animation and particle simulation.
