Halo Media Works had the pleasure of working on the fun and colorful American Greetings property, Care Bears. We handled some of the pre-production work for a series of Youtube shorts called The Care Package Chronicles. The shorts depicted a few care bear toys coming to life in the real world and getting into bizarre and funny situations.
For the project, we handled the modeling, rigging, and texturing of each the care bears. The animation style required for the animation rigs to have switchable mouths and eyes in order recreate the look of stop-motion animation. American Greeting also partnered with the Cleveland Institute of Art to handle all of the post-production work. After the 3D pre-production was done on our end the fine students at CIA took over and animated and composited the finals shot.
Check out some of our work below.
We had a great time collaborating with American Greeting and CIA and look forward to doing more in the future.
