CITV – Finding Zero

By | Behind The Scenes, CITV, Share A Story, stop-motion | One Comment

Now on air – ‘Oh No! Where’s Zero?’ made for CITV’s ‘Share A Story’ competition. The story was written by 11 year old Alfie de Brito. We took his 6 panel storyboard and expanded it into a 1 minute film. The plasticine number characters were filmed on a rostrum camera with ‘checker-boarded’ mattes and then composited together. Photos courtesy of the very talented Cassidy Wingrove who worked on the models.

Background

Share A Story is into its third year and is a CITV success story. As a competition for 5-12 year olds, this year saw the biggest response from a CITV audience with over 5000 entrants. This more than tripled the total entrants in 2011. It has collected 2 BAFTA nominations in the Short Form category and is nominated again this year. It also won a Promax / BDA Design award this year in the Interstitial / Short Form Campaign Category.

I used this post originally to keep the production office and other members of the creative team updated privately on progress here at the studio during the latter development stages and rehearsal process. It was a really useful tool for inviting feedback and allowing cross-collaboration with Stage and Costume Designer Tom Scutt.
