Ages 3-5 (preschool)
What this is
Team Umizoomi is a TV show that has aired on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. since 2010. It’s an animation/live action hybrid show with a preschool math curriculum.
What I did
I worked on the show production for Seasons 2-4, beginning as a Production Assistant and ending as a Production/Storyboard Coordinator. I got to work on a little bit of everything, and so I am very familiar with all parts of the preschool animation and live action production process. Within the production I worked with the teams responsible for research, writing, storyboarding, design, animation, voiceover, and live action. I also worked with various departments at the Nickelodeon network including programming, international, consumer products, legal, and interactive.
Here’s a more résumé-y breakdown of what I worked on in case that’s helpful:
Managed props, wardrobe, casting, storyboards and scripts for 7 live action shoots.
Tracked storyboard changes for Storyboard, Edit, Design and Animation departments for 20 episodes.
Kept script notes, scheduled recording sessions and prepared talent contracts and scripts for 150 voiceover sessions.
Created and delivered final episode documentation such as music cue sheets, “as broadcast” scripts, visual assets, and credits.
Liason between Team Umizoomi production and Nickelodeon corporate departments such as Legal, Interactive, International, Consumer Products and Programming.
Research assistant for 20 research sessions including formative, summative, and character testing research.
