Project

After winning the pitch for BBC Bitesize, Splinter approached us to help create 30+ of the 3 minute animations for the BBC Bitesize series.

Result

We opted to keep the 2D animation all within in Cinema 4D, After Effects is commonly used for character animation, we felt its system is not robust or built to handle rigged systems. Cinema 4D provided a simple method, as all shaders remained flat, render times where exceptional fast, keeping the stylised feel of 2D.
