BBC Continued Projects
2016 - Present

Visualising key learning experiences for a new generation.

Animated Learning Experiences

The A to
Z of ISMs

Commissioned by the powerhouse Somethin Else on behalf of BBC Ideas we’re proud to have been the driving force behind the A to Z of ISM’s series. 28 videos based around various “ISMs” such as globalism or vampirism. Each animation has a comic book treatment and tonality to it.

The Language of Football

A one off commission for the lead up to 5 Live’s football season and BBC Learnings new term.

Newtopias – Re-imagining the world

Newtopias Series

Every future is a vision, sometimes good and sometimes bad. Commissioned to create 8 feature length typography and panoramic based animations for the BBC. Each film represented a different futuristic insight by a key visionary. The beautiful visuals are continuously scrolling while the kinetic typography appears timed to the voice over (recorded by the visionary).

IP based activity
driven games.


Using key IPs such as Blue Planet II and Danger Mouse the aim was to get kids up and dancing. Therefore some “interactive” videos were created to help drive imagination and exercise together.

Each film is introduced by its key actors and continuously drives forward. At regular and timed intervals varying elements have to be “dodged” or “ducked”. Be it a Danger Mouse bad-guy or plastics in the oceans.


Building on the DASH series of films. Together with Somethin Else we created a series of “dance mat” videos to help kids of all ages start dancing. Live action video was filmed, and then, during POST we create dynamically moving character actions for the bottom of the screen. Every move is timed and actioned accordingly.

Continued Relationships

Edible History

When food is loved by so many, it’s history can get lost. To combat this problem the BBC commissioned Somethin Else and Covert to create a series of 8 films showcasing the history of various food types. The films are a huge success and continue to chart the BBC Ideas frontpage with Gin & Tonic firmly in the lead. Who’d have thought?
