Here’s a link to a video promoting the new mascot, Tazuni, for FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023. I was hired by Unlisted to choreograph a sequence where Tazuni shows off her fancy footwork. Now, I do play football, but would be flattering myself to say I can do anything like this with a ball. However, I have watched the greats closely, and I enjoyed slipping their moves into this sequence.
It’s pleasing to see the animators followed my choreography closely in this short, link here: https://www.fifa.com/fifaplus/en/articles/tazuni-2023-womens-world-cup-official-mascot. The action kicks off at 1:00.
Drawn on iPad in Procreate with Apple Pencil. I was able to work quickly and produce a lot of frames in the time allotted. You might call them shooting boards. (A storyboard joke!)
