Children's TV Show
Lisberger Ladd Animation Studio
Animator for "Make a Wish", a children's program that aired on ABC. This was probably my first real (i.e. paid-to-be-a-professional) media job.
The Value Proposition
I created short animation snippets for the show at newly-formed Lisberger-Ladd Studio in Boston. We were to take a word or phrase and animate it.
My word was "mark". My cartoon snippets included
"Hit the mark"
An archer strains mightily to pull back his bow, releases it and .... (camera pan-zooms to the target) he is impaled head-first in the bullseye.
Stands before a crowd and orates, "Friends, Romans, countrymen - Lend me your ears!". He is immediately showered with a flurry of ears.
A book laying on a desk opens, the bookmark slides out, puts on glasses, and starts reading (For a brief moment the title of the book appears: "Marx")
