Animation company: Blue-Zoo
Client: Dot-To-Dot Productions
Brief: To create and animate the Get Squiggling! children's pre-school series.
How it was done: The creative team, led by Damian Hook at Blue-Zoo, produced the 2D animation. They devised custom plug-ins to create crayon drawings digitally, enabling the animation to be done using conventional 3D animation tools in Maya. Live action character Squiglet was composited into Final Shot to interact with animated characters.
Watch it: Daily, starting 11 February on BBC2 and CBeebies.
