"The Best Day Ever" animated short

Adjunct faculty Andrew Friz recently worked on an animated short, The Best Day Ever: Featuring Flo the Progressive Girl & a Guy Named Jimmy, for Progressive Insurance as part of their media campaign.

The three-minute animation was produced by J.J.Sedelmaier Productions, Inc., a company based in New York City that has worked on projects such as Beavis & Butt-Head, School House Rock, and Saturday Night Live.

“I refined and expanded the storyboards and matched the audio track to make the animatic, which is a rough pass at seeing it all together,” Friz said. “I worked on character design with J.J. Sedelmaier Productions and finished the project by painting backgrounds and finishing the rest of the animations as needed.”

Friz leads a small, full-service animation company, The Little Black Cat, in Columbus, OH. He is an award-winning artist with experience in feature films, commercials, illustration, and graphic design.
