About London's Hero:
In collaboration with the teams below, Cut&Paste facilitated the studios working in an exquisite-corpse format to tell the story of London's newest superhero. All animation sessions from Sept 26-Oct 15 were held at ZED, HP's Pop-Up Studio For Creatives. Each team worked sequentially, animating a ten-second portion representing a different life stage - baby, child, teen, adult, midlife, senior - and stitching each clip together. Collaborators were only allowed to see the last 30 frames of the previous team's work.
Baby - Blackmeal - Mael Francois & Thomas Lecomte
Child - Mummu - Sam Atkin & Karl Hammond
Teen - Fred & Eric - Maggie Rogers & Lee Cooper
Young Adult - Animade - Ed Barrett & Tom Judd
Midlife - Territory - Marti Romances & Nik Hill
Senior - Golden Wolf - Ewen Stenhouse & Stefan Falconer
