Episode 3 Bronze age

you can watch the episode HERE

This was the one where everything came together. Myself Angus and Brook had gotten the method of getting the work done in seven days to make each episode. (I know, shocking!)

I insisted on the mysterious opening to keep it slightly spooky and atmospheric. I was also backed up by Emma the writer as bronze making was kept secret at the time so it was considered magical. Some lovely animation here from Brook with the molten bronze. Search for videos of molten bronze its amazing.

It was massively difficult to design clothes for the characters, seeing as they make wool only half way through the episode. And it was in a warm time climate wise. So I just took reference to clothing at the time and substituted wool for leather.

Episode 02 neolithic

Ah episode two, it took so long to make the final shot wasn’t finished until the last day of production!

The fantastic 3D Eagle was made and animated by my brother Henry

And a big thank you to the guys at rapid for putting the eagle sound every time he’s in shot.

it was at this point we where joined by Brook and Hamish who provided sterling animation throughout the show.

There is very little information on people of this age. Most of the costume came from men like Ötzi and other frozen men of the time. The costume of the characters is similar to those of the American Indians, which just goes to prove that some designs just don’t need fixing.

Episode 01 Middle Stone Age

you can watch it HERE 

Hello, this is Ben the director of the show.

Episode one was always going to be a tricky one. I had figured out the art style and the episode was already story boarded before we started, however myself and Angus the lead animator, hadn’t really figured out the most streamlined method of production. So it took almost twice as long to animate as all the other episodes.

The wolves and the bear where the most fun to animate, and a bit of a trick to get past the powers that be. however everyone responded well to wolfie as expected.

and yes that is Jenna Coleman narrating.

and Blanca went on a holiday to Malaga Spain.

I haven’t done any real location drawing in ages so it was nice to get over my fear of drawing buildings. i had no real goal for the sketches other than to just paint what i saw and maybe improve my methods.

some of them have been tampered with in photoshop, but then again its my sketchbook so blow it out yer ass.

if you’d like to see the rest of them they are up on my other blog at blogger
