Missions with Monty - Teacher Recruitment

Software: After Effects, Illustrator


This science-based learning program focuses on building the reading comprehension skills of NC 5th grade students, so my role was to bring youthful movement to the pre-designed assets.


I proposed that each in-game character should be given an idle animaiton as their audio plays. This became a simple way of keeping the attention of young users.


Using a finalized script and a prior version of the recruitment video, I had a guide for how the team wanted their information presented. Each background shown is an in-game environment that users will learn about as they play.


For a closer look at this program and its outreach, the Missions with Monty website can be found here.
