Editing Solutions Feature, Animalia - Case Study
ANIMALIA is the alphabet book that changed author and illustrator Graeme Base’s life. Since it was first published in 1986, and has sold close to three million copies around the world.
he show has also been bought by networks in the US and Canada and by the BBC, and will be translated into other languages.
Ewan Burnett, is the co-producer of the series and owner of Burberry Productions, which picked up the rights to Animalia in 1999. A team of Queensland animators are putting the final touches on a 3D animated children’s series to launch to the global television and trade market in Cannes, France, this month.
Two Australian animation studios are involved, Photon VFX on the Gold Coast and Iloura-Digital Pictures in South Melbourne.
How is Videopro helping Animalia unique business challenges? Animalia needed a tapeless work flow that involved the transfer of animated files between the Gold Coast and Melbourne.
What were the elements of the tapeless workflow?
The solution was the installation of 1 x Avid Media Composer Adrenaline, 2 x Avid Xpress Pro with Mojo and 1 x Editshare server.
The 40 part, 24-minute episodes which make up the series equals 16 hours of new animation - the equivalent of eight feature films.
