Roots Like Boots

Graphic animation explaining the thought behind the structure and ethos of Roots Community Church.

Travis Vice came to me with an idea for a video to explain the structure and values of his new church-plant Roots Community Church in northeast Portland, Oregon. For years he had been explaining about Roots to friends and ministry partners by drawing diagrams on paper. So I¬†took his drawings and brought them to life. Travis wrote and recorded the script himself. I storyboarded out the project, fleshing visuals out a bit more, and adding in elements of visual humor. I digitally recreated Travis’¬†drawings in Adobe Illustrator and animated them in Adobe After Effects.

The entire process was done remotely as I was living in Thailand at the time.
