School for Monsters Mencap animation gets underway

We've started work animating a cartoon for Mencap aimed at combating bullying in mainstream schools.

The characters have been designed by the awesome Cherie Zamazing and the motion tests look great.

Next week we'll be recording the voices in Soho with a brilliant actor (we're keeping that secret for now, but as a clue, he was in Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Burke and Hare).

This will be the first Toothpix animation, but it's so much fun, we're sure it won't be the last.

We've also had a brilliant letter through from a client we made a film for in February:

"We all had a really positive experience filming the DVD. I found it to be a really positive experience and a transparent process. Thanks for making everything run so smoothly!

My previous experiences of filming had always been fraught and quite off putting. Thanks for changing my experience for the better!"
