Opening theme to a pilot children's television show I animated as part of my volunteer efforts for RMITV, the student television community at RMIT.
Tall Ted is a giant bear who educates young children on safety tips, entertains them with magic amongst other things. Recently a pilot was shot for Channel 31, the community television channel here in Australia/Victoria, and hopefully it'll get picked up.
This was the first time I was given such an important role to work on as an animator and despite the stress garnered from it I gained a valuable experience. In terms of man-hours it wasn't too taxing however I should of finished this months ago however I couldn't start on this until after my uni workload lessened.
I tried my best to maintain a nice, clean vector style to the images I drew/animated but I was tempted by some of the filters on flash but it turned out quite well in my opinion. Remember, this is intended for small children :)
Music by Madison Deckert, Trevor O'Connor and Greg Foster. They are awesome
