We collaborated with George the Poet to create a character led animation

The Brief


George the Poet reached out to The Animation Guys and wanted to see if it was possible to produce a 4-minute animated video with lip sync. However, the deadline was 1 week.

Our Response


The first hurdle within this project was, of course, the timescale. George had already done a fantastic job to provide the story, it was now up to our creative and technical team to develop some punchy animation. We were lucky that the topic was around cells, so we developed these “blob” like characters to represent the different elements.

We took inspiration from the stage. We developed an environment that had a somewhat “theatrical” approach which helped us stage the scene George had created. And of course, it would be rude not for us to create an animated version of George to help tell the story. It’s worth pointing out, we developed some bespoke tech that made this possible. If you’d like to find out more about that. Give us a shout!

The Result


What our client Said


“The Animation Guys helped me put together an informational video on the mechanisms of Diabetes for World Diabetes Day 2018. The professionalism of their team is unparalleled and the quality of their work is outstanding. With quick turnover times and a heightened understanding of their client’s requests, the Animation Guys are able to produce remarkably creative pieces on demand. I look forward to working with them more in the future.”
