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.
Little Monkey in Big Monkey World
Just for fun! Our first 48 Lock-in, directed by El, LMBW features a bizarre story focusing on a little money who disguises himself for work as a larger ape.
Animated with the help of family and friends to support us during our lock-in, we had a lot of fun with this short!
