This was one of the first tests we completed as we were pitching for the job. Originally, our hero TV was perched atop a small table. It proved to be a slightly complicated way of animating the character and was ultimately abandoned for a more human and familiar approach. Note how the TV is on a nightstand and that the design of the screen of both the TV’s are based on test cards. The idea was too old fashioned and difficult to read and was abandoned for something more graphic and up to date.
