CGP Grey Animator's Audition Video

May 2016

My audition animation video for Youtuber CGPGrey's call for an illustrator / animator. The application called for the creation of a video in Grey's style using audio provided by Grey himself. 

From the application posting on


"If you are interested in working with the CGPGrey channel a full job description can be found here. To be eligible your application must include:

  1. A private dropbox link to a 4k60FPS version of the animated script above. Videos that are publicly posted on YouTube are disqualified.

  2. The animation will contain zero stock images and zero screen grabs from the CGPGrey YouTube channel. All assets will be original.

  3. A ZIP file of the original assets created to make the animation.

  4. A declaration that you are of legal age to do freelance work.

  5. No personal information about you other than the city where you live. If you have a portfolio of other work that you want to share, that can be included.

Applications will begin to be evaluated on Friday May 13th."

I used Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 to edit the video together (although looking back Keynote might've worked equally well). I've since received an email from Grey's personal assistant telling me that another candidate was chosen.
