One of 6 short films by Slurpy Studios for RIW (Remember It’s Waterproof).
Each film was created to explore a common mistake in the waterproofing process, and to show architects and builders the potential consequences of not doing it properly. They are a funny and tongue in cheek way of talking about quite a serious and technical problem.
They are designed in a 1950’s ‘UPA’ style, with strong character profiles, no straight lines and a carefully designed colour palette. The animation is fun and cartoony, with ‘rubber-hose’ limbs.
Commissioned by Harvest Digital on behalf of Comic Relief and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), Slurpy Studios worked with Who Are They Productions to produce a short animated film piece to promote the GPE Education Campaign at the UN General Assembly.
