Around October 2012 I started my work on Frozen at Disney animation. We started working on a test scene that later would become part of a chase sequence, when Anna and Kristoff are kicked off the ice palace by a giant snow monster. We were pretty tired after a long summer working hard to finish animation on Wreck it Ralph.

It was pretty difficult at the beginning , dealing with more human characters and a little more realistic animation.

 But soon I was moved to work on the teaser trailer, and I felt more at home , animating Sven and making him fall on the ice, and drag his butt like a maniac to get that carrot.This was a lot of fun to do.

.Some more subtle animation for the Old Troll. The movie was completely animated around August 2013. I was fortunate to get some iconic shots that have been used extensively for the marketing of the movie. Also I worked on some more subtle , acting shots in the movie like the Old Troll scene

We had a real life reindeer visiting the studio to get some references. Poor thing only had one antler !Sketching the reindeer

Here's a video with the process of one of my shots in the film. 

 

Here are some of my sketches and thumbnails done in the production of Frozen.
