We placed the creative decisions in the hands of our followers and the wider community. This was by creating a range of designs for backgrounds, characters and colour variations which the public could vote upon. We asked the community questions about their perceptions of homeless people, scouted common locations, and worked out the best story possible to provide knowledge on how to help the homeless!
What comes together is a really nice collage of ideas, influences and styles, using humour and emotion to to bring together very disparate hand-drawn animated styles into a singular vision, shaped by the people of Norwich and beyond.
Hey, that's us! These are the pretty faces behind all the magic here at Cut the Mustard Animation. After creating two graduate films together at Norwich University of the Arts we didn't want to leave each other, so here we are years later still having fun acting as directors, animators, storyboarders, character designers, illustrators, compositors, producers, the list is endless!
Fin is a director and animator, as well as chief compositor on the team, stitching together the films into their final form. Only thing he loves more than animation is Beavers.
