- Here’s what looks like a simple move done by Tissa David when she animated this Viva, paper towel commercial. It was produced, directed and designed by John Hubley. A very simple and beautiful character.
The character’s move in this scene is a complicated one done simply. She has been bent over, cleaning with her paper towel, and she moves up. You can follow the overlapping action as her eyes pull her up, head turn, and body follows.
The stripes will come and go. Tissa depends on someone else to concentrate on this material when she’s working on a commercial.

This key move is hidden under the exchange of the
paper towel from one hand to the other.
