A few years ago we animated key sequences for a Fox Sports investigative piece entitled “Who Killed Lorenzon Wright?” which led to the December 2017 arrest of Sherra Wright, the ex-wife of the former Clippers player. Yesterday she pled guilty to facilitating his murder and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Here’s our case study on how we put together the motion design for the segments: https://zookeeper.com/work/who-killed-lorenzon-wright-fox-sports

We bring characters to life.

Zookeeper is an animation and branding studio based in Los Angeles.

We’ve helped clients like Nike, Fox Sports, NBC, Conan O’Brien and many more by animating content that grabs attention, builds younger audiences and creates loyal followers.

Working with Adobe’s Advanced Product Development Team, we’re utilizing new game-changing technologies that allow us to animate using 3-D face-tracking and audio inputs for realistic movements and lip-syncing. And do so much more affordably than traditional animation. What before would take months now takes just weeks, so we can produce “snackable” content in high volume, which is perfect for bite-size applications like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or whatever is hot next month. These breakthrough technologies also let us animate in real-time, meaning live.

We’ve work with networks and brands, while also developing and producing our own IP for original animated shows.

Just did this game-changing Discovery process with Dave Waite, at Zookeeper, and am stunned by how much ground we covered for both the inward and outward facing components of qralce (www.qralce.com). We added value to every dollar qralce will spend in the future. Bringing about a major mind shift in 2 2-hour sessions is quite an undertaking. qralce now has foundation, major pressure relief, clear next steps, and a level of brand awareness that will influence how we develop--beyond the technology we create. Totally gushing, but had to thank you, Dave, for advocating on behalf of qralce’s future. This is going to be a revolutionary next few months. I feel empowered and emboldened to bring qralce to the next level because I see where it's going more clearly than ever before. This is truly thrilling! #qralce #highscoresat #testprep #sat #future #zookeeper
