The Snowfox

The Snow Fox is a customizable digital storybook app that uses Siri to animate the story to your child’s voice. The app has been featured as one of Apple’s “New Apps We Love” in the UK app store.


On top of some oversight and production duties, my team produced the scenic animations for the app, visual effects compositing for the launch video, and full production of the case study film.
