Happy Hour Productions has created an animated title sequence for the new Dave Gorman TV series “Modern Life Is Goodish”.
The six part series starts on 17th September 2013, at 10pm Tuesday on DAVE. The series feature stand up comedy from Dave Gorman, and is “broadly about the misinformation and nonsense we have to wade through daily in this technologically advanced, wonderful – yet flawed – world of ours.”
The brief asked for Happy Hour to create an animated paper cut-out model of Dave walking down a paper road interacting with and avoiding various obstacles along the way – mobile phones, Twitter, spam, CCTV – essentially anything that relates to ‘modern life’.
The process involved Happy Hour fully storyboarding, designing and animating the title sequence, which was created in CGI and animated as one shot – from Paper Dave peeling himself out of a paper laptop, to Paper Dave walking through the theatre door at the end of the sequence.
Dave Gorman is an author, stand up comedian and television presenter. He is best known for his previous TV series Are You Dave Gorman?, Dave Gorman’s Important Astrology Experiment, and Dave Gorman’s Googlewhack Adventure.
Happy Hour’s animation team included Chris Rabet (build / key animation); Mikey Ford (lead compositor); Gareth Owen (director).
