How a side project led to doing Google’s 20th anniversary Doodle

Six years ago, the Monks of MediaMonks’ animation department started teaming up to do weird and wonderful side projects in their downtime, late nights and weekends. It was these projects such as Deep Thoughts, a monthly animated series on topics such as pets, fear and cereal, that soon formed a fundamental aspect of the culture within the team that kept them creatively healthy and attracting bold briefs. In this talk, Art & Animation Director Fran Marquez will talk about how the team applied all these past learnings, struggles and side-hustling to their biggest project yet - Google's 20th anniversary Doodle.
