Popular (Wicked) Animated Musical Piece

A dream project of mine, every time I listen to the soundtrack of the musical Wicked, I can always picture an animated movie. I decided it was time to bring those thoughts to life and animate a piece of music from the soundtrack- the song Popular. This was a fun challenge to bring two opposing characters to life while animating with a fun and cartoony style to the beats of the music.

Reference Footage

For each of my shots, I will start by sketching out thumbnails of each main pose. Next, I film multiple reference shots for each character/action and will compile the best footage together in Premiere Pro.
