BoodleBobs Animation & Children’s Book Series
Boodlebobs are a set of 26 short stories written by children’s author Jo Kemp. Jo wrote the original scripts for Chorlton and the Wheelies and Jamie and the Magic Torch in the late 70’s where she adopted a gentle, narrative style with little regard for political correctness and both series attracted a cult following.
We wanted to develop our animation skills in motion graphics and character animation whilst developing our own brand. Created with Adobe creative cloud, the tools we typically use within the suite are Audition for the audio. Illustrator, Photoshop for the backgrounds and character designs. Character animator for the digital puppets and performances. After Effects and Premiere for putting it all together and final editing.
Each story consists of around 600 words and takes Luke 2-3 weeks to animate once the audio guide track is complete. The BoodleBobs cartoons are good examples of low budget animation.
