I was inspired to do this video, mainly because of my passion to show up on the Olympics, one way or another. I’m not an athlete, Im a designer. I was quite the beginner at animated graphics at this time, but I was determined to produce the best work anyone had ever seen. I wanted to give the Olympics in Brazil a stamp of Joseph art! This was my involvement. Design the commercial, have friend who works at NBC see it and hire me to design all things Olympic. Retire.
Didn’t work that way, but this self-propelled project did afford me a few lessons in humility. I learned to animate, and I learned that putting together the olympic graphics takes more than a village.
