BBC1 Christmas Circus - Trampoline ident (1996)

Concept and creative process

A Christmas package of idents, stings and interclips to promote the Christmas schedule on BBC1 using a troupe of circus acrobats and jugglers. This was a complete stop-frame animation sequence by model makers animators 3 Peach. Each mannequin was built with pivoting limbs and wired to move frame by frame. Compositing in post-production added sparkle and removed the animation rig supports.
