History – The Interesting Bits

We love working on a nice juice telly project so imagine the delight when we were the animation studio commissioned by Impossible Factual / National Geographic to work on a lovely new project – History, the interesting bits!

This is a very graphics driven look into the fun / quirkier parts of history and a delight to work on. Because we’re telling stories about many parts of history with few or no archive assets, it relies heavily on imaginative illustration and quirky animation to bring everything to life.

With 8 eps, 10 mins animation each it was a bit of a whopping production – several months’ worth for a chunky team of artists, animators and compositors. The style we ended up with is like a fresh take on Python, but clean and fresh. Season 2 soon, please!
