Bits'n'Bobs : sk8 - The Movie

The original cartoon was hand-drawn on a sheet of paper. To turn this into an animated cartoon each ‘cell’ of the cartoon was scanned. Then each item within each ‘cell’ was traced using Macromedia Freehand to allow us to animate individual items seperately.

Each hand-drawn cell was then converted into animated media using Macromedia Flash. We then had to make editorial decisions about the story. With a cartoon on paper you can view the entire story at once, however, with an animated movie you have to view it in scenes.

The result of this process is the cartoon you can see if you click the link below. Please note that this cartoon was produced by us in 2002 and features our old logo!
