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.
- Beach Hut Six
The second, created to announce the ‘hibernation’ of the hut as it went into winter, featuring some hedgehogs animated over live-action photos and videos. We were very happy to create this one as hedgehogs have become something of a staple of a few of our films (given we work with nature-themed animation very often).
