Working on Newsround!
Updated: Oct 31
Working on Newsround sounds cool right?
What an incredible opportunity it was. After watching it as a child & then being inspired by the BBC's output for all my career this opportunity was such an incredible experience.
How did this happen?
The BBC reached out to us (Ben Wild Studios ltd) with the concept of creating illustrated and animated moments for a couple of special episodes of Newsround. Incredible right?
What was the brief?
The brief was to work on two episodes of Newsround.
One was an anniversary episode covering the events of the Chornobyl Disaster & the second episode was to help explain the events of the 9/11 Terrorist attacks.
What was the biggest challenge with this project?
Being able to capture such a sensitive subject & translate the situation into factual but child-appropriate content was quite the challenge. After working with the BBC's research team and developing the content with our internal creative team we are incredibly proud of the finished product.
What are we working on next?
We are currently working on two shows for streaming platforms & animated content for ITV and an incredibly exciting luxury AD.
Thanks so much for reading. Hopefully, this added some value to your day!
