Shortly after their successful collaboration
on Smile, Your On Candid Camera, Peppiate Sharpe
invited Liquid Studios to design the characters, props and
animation for a series of three programmes for Channel 4.
The programmes - 3 of a 6 part series -
dealt with changing attitudes to driving, hairdressing and
DIY. Each programme would have an animated title sequence
featuring characters performing tasks within the given programme
start of each sequence would show older
approaches to the subject matter, with the characters gradually
updating to reflect modern attitudes. It was important for
the animations to tie in closely with the programme content
and also for each of the sequences to obviously be part of
The character animation and props were designed
and animated using Macromedia Flash, with the final composite
produced by Peppiate Sharpe and mastered by Mezzo Studios.
Each programme had just just a 1 week timeline for Liquids
You can see a small sample of these sequences
in our showreel, which you can download here.
