Stills Montage
 
Series Design& Development Work: I've been involved in the creation or Design & Development of a number of Children's TV Series over the years - beginning with the smash hit "Tiny Planets" in 1999. Here's a montage of work from a more recent project "Flux Deluxe" illustrating the transformation of characters from 2D to 3D, finding an appropriate style, testing the characters and the development of the Key Set. This work actually concluded in a 3 minute fully animated 'Trailer', alas this is still under wraps!
