We wrote and produced this charming stop-frame film that champions weekly newspapers. The production involved the creation of 45 unique puppets and 5 sets, all of which were designed and created in-house.
Storyboarding A Life in Print was an intricate process, following our main character Ray on his life's journey where his local newspaper is there at every stage.
Creating an animatic for this production was an important process. Every scene had to be planned intricately because of the sheer number of characters on-screen as well as the camera movements and transitions involved.
Our main focus throughout the making of A Life in Print was to bring the power of local advertising to the forefront of the story. Every major moment in the main character’s life is covered, in some way, by newspapers. This helped to tie together each section of the story.
This TVC production involved the highest amount of puppets to date. Produced over 12 weeks, the film was written, designed and animated by our in-house team.
