Selected exterior backgrounds for various animation videos done for a client.
The staging for these backgrounds are character focused and usually take around 1.5-3 hours to complete. To give the animators more leeway with their camera movements, I would often design the backgrounds to be wider shot to allow for dollys, trackings, and zoom shots. The challenge in creating these backgrounds is predicting how the animator would envision the scenes as the quick turnaround times don't allow for story boarding to set up shots. I would often communicate with the animator to confirm a scene's look and will do quick edits to extend scenes when it's clear during the first animated draft that certain backgrounds require more space.
