Merry Christmas from everyone at Bluegg!
Well, what a year it’s been! Eyjafjallajökull erupted and made everyone homebirds for a while. England fumbled the World Cup (again). People loved the vuvuzela. Strength of man was shown in Chile. First Coalition Government formed in 70 years. Wagner. People hated the vuvuzela. iPad. We grew to eight. We celebrated.
So a bit of a mixed bag worldwide, but for us, it’s been a great one. We’ve picked up a bunch of really great new clients and have enjoyed working with some brilliant people. Although the rest will be well deserved and will help recharge the batteries, we’re itching to get back in the new year and crack on.
The studio will be closing at around 2pm on Wednesday 22nd December and we’ll be back, sparkly eyed, donning our new Christmas pants and socks at 8.30am on Tuesday 4th Jan 2011.
Have a fantastic Christmas and New Year. Eat, drink and be merry. We’ll see you in 2011!
The Bluegg Team.
Bluegg creates animated film for the Seren Group
In September 2010 the Seren Group held their annual general meeting of partners, board members and local authorities. Bluegg provided a wide range of design services including design and production of banner stands and the design of an annual review.
As part of the open day, Seren needed a ‘corporate video’ to explain the theme of the day which was ‘Community Regeneration’. These types of films can be pretty tedious to watch so we proposed an animated video with a voice over to add a bit of fun and entertainment to the story.
How we did it
The first stage of the project was to work with the Seren Group team on the story, content and script. We then used these to build a story board and started creating custom illustrations to explain each stage of the film
We animated the film in Adobe Flash and arranged for a voiceover to be recorded in at the Machine Rooms in the ITV Wales studios. The video was finally exported to DVD and shown at the Riverfront Theatre in Newport.
