Visual Development Artist for Animation

Joel Parod


Here is a collection of commercials that I've worked on in collaboration with my wife, Claire Armstrong Parod, who is a character designer, animator and animation director. I worked in a variety of roles as co-director, art director, designer, animator, painter, editor or compositor. We co-directed the Microsoft campaign and Longford Homes. Claire directed Anna Belle and several Charmin commercials. I hand painted animation in the United Airlines commercial and Claire animated. I loved the creative variety and freedom we had to do these. It was an interesting, rewarding and exhausting experience working on these in all aspects of the production process. Our work has won several awards, including a Southwest Regional Emmy for best commercial for Longford Homes.
