Rufus the dog is on the scent of great language and structure in compelling stories.
Animated punctuation marks debate their purpose and how they add clarity to the written word.
Two videos made for BBC Bitesize/Pier Productions, to help GCSE students with revision for the English Language GCSE.
For both videos I worked from the provided script and voice over, and created storyboards, character designs, layouts, art direction/style exploration.
I then created the characters, backgrounds & props for both videos in Illustrator and animated them in Flash, composited them in After Effects and edited them in Premier.
Watch the videos on the BBC Bitesize website:
