The aim of this film was to achieve the look of an oil painting coming to life. The film follows the history of the world’s oldest cricket ground and the designs reflect the changes in the ground as well as the historic players which have appeared at Lord’s.
Storyboarding the scenes allowed our animation team to develop the framing, transitions and action. There was lots of important history to include and the storyboard enabled us to ensure all the key milestones were covered.
The sketches and drawings from the storyboard were used in creating the animatic. We created a number of versions of the animatic, until we were confident the story of the ground shone through; this then provided a proof of concept.
