Working with the McKnight Foundation in the USA, we made this animated short film for Teaching Works.
Teaching Works are an organisation whose mission is to ensure that all students have skillful teachers who are committed to and able to support their growth, disrupting racial inequity that has become common place in North American schools. Deborah Loewenberg Ball, the director of the company, voices the narration for our film. To read more about Teaching Works, visit their website here.
We've been selected as a finalist for Shorty Awards (held in NYC) in both Animation and Eductaion categories. The results will be announced on Thursday, November the 19th.
Dan Binns designed the stunning artwork for this short film. Animators were Aaron Brady, Dan Binns and myself. Click on any of the images below to watch the full film.
Before any project goes into the animation stage, we produce an animatic to see how the story plays out. Think of it as a moving storyboard, timed to a scratch voice track (if we don't have the final audio at this point in time.) It's crucial to iron out any issues i te pacing or narrative, and to make sure the client knows what they're be gettting when it's polished up in colour.
Here's the animatic we made for Teaching is Powerful.
