The Great British Village Show
The Great British Village Show is a national institution in which members of the public take huge pride in growing the biggest vegetables, decorating the most sumptuous cakes and creating the most beautiful handicrafts. For many people being the village champion is the highlight of their year, but imagine being the champion of the whole of Britain.
The sequence references the true Britishness of the village fete, including the vegetables and home-made products relating to the competition in a cheeky picture postcard style.
Designed in illustrator and photoshop each character and element was drawn using traditional techniques and animated together with Autodesk Combustion. The scenes were then composited in Flint and Combustion where the final touches were added to create this warm and humorous sequence.
