Tooning Out the News: Ted Cruz’s wild Nazi salute rant

I was fortunate to join Stephen Colbert’s Paramount+ series “Tooning Out the News” for their most recent season. My main responsibility was editing their short interstitial comedy pieces. Each day I would prepare a mockup, timing out and sound designing the audio, while creating a visual reference for the animators using a combination of downloaded images, news video, and photoshop/after effects elements.

Once the animators completed their pass, I would handle final creative and technical touches, and deliver the piece for inclusion in the episode. It was the type of comedy-focused speed challenge that I love tackling.
