Here’s a teaser of the adorable new show, Kiddets, that I have been working on for the last year.

I  led a storyboard team through a season of drawing these cute aliens as they learn about Earth in preparation for the big invasion… (okay, that last bit might have been something we came up with ourselves).

We basically took the supplied script for each episode, broke it down (and sometimes acted out key moments) then took to our Cintiqs to bring these little guys to life in 2D.

One challenge was to make sure everything worked in 3D as the previs team that came after us would then have to arrange everything for the animators which meant if our drawing and staging got too flat or we didn’t keep track of the backgrounds – we would hear about it!
All part of the process… and pretty stoked how it came out – lookit dem colours!

Big thanks to Mechanic Animation, Pukeko Pictures and everyone we worked with on this – especially my team of indefatigable story artist!
