We're beyond pleased to share an animation project that we just completed titled London's Hero. In collaboration with teams below, we 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.

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
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.
All animators used HP's Z820 workstations mixed with endless coffee & beer. It's a quick vid, so keep an eye out for some subtle humor and if you get a sec, we'd love to hear what you think.
