2D Animation

"G.I. Jeff" is the eleventh episode of the fifth season of Community, and the 95th episode overall in the series. It originally aired on April 3, 2014 on NBC. The episode was written by Dino Stamatopoulos, and directed by Rob Schrab. The episode was completed in the animation style of the popular 1980s children's television cartoon, G.I. Joe.

LosFX’s role was to take the supplied storyboards, animatic, and retro character designs and animate it following the creative direction of Starburns Industries who was producing the show. The services provided included production design and development followed by traditional 2D animation using Adobe's Flash software, and lastly developing a filter effect in Adobe’s After Effects software to simulate the animation footage looking old and authentically 80’s via compositing techniques in editorial.
