I had a request via my website to start a long term project with social enterpirse Thornely & Hill.
They sent me a script and a rather long brief. Here’s some of it,
“Thornely & Hill is a dynamic, forward thinking social enterprise with
an overarching aims of re-energising and providing services to the
third sector, public sector, charities, social enterprises and any
private organisations with an identifiable social aim. As such we’re
looking for a short animation to tell the story of our inception and a
bit about how go about things. This isn’t really intended as an
informational or ‘corporate’ video, we want an animation which people
want to share through social media and which will raise our profile.
It’s more about creating brand identity through narrative then a
genuine corporate video.
I was thinking an animated cartoon of myself and my business partner
Chris Hill, starting with our first discussion about the idea in a
milkshake shop on Abbeydale Road in Sheffield, followed by the partner
organisations we became involved with and how it was our values and
ideals which really made the difference when it came why our approach
Since then, I have met with Thornely and Hill to discuss character development and I’ve started initial outcomes for backgrounds etc. We have also written a script together for me to stick to and animate.
This is an ongoing project as outcome requirements are getting more detailed as time goes on, but firstly, an animation. keep an eye out for development.
