Design Week Drawings Revisited
The new issue of Design Week magazine released today features a nice article on how animators translate the illustrations of others into animated films. The piece includes a short interview with Studio AKA's Philip Hunt on his Bafta and Annecy award-winning 'Lost and Found', adapted from Oliver Jeffers' children's book about the friendship between a boy and a penguin. Here is a small sample from that interview:
"With Jeffers, we tried to leave the book "un-animated" and rebooted the idea to fit the format... We set the film apart visually, but retained recognisability and tried to delve deeper into this world... I took liberties, but only those I could imagine the author also taking - and that's the key, to remain inspired by the original voice and not lose the way."
