Award for Sir David Attenborough

Earlier this year we were approached by the People’s Postcode Lottery to create a moving illustration that would work as the background, on-screen animation and template for print for their end of year charity gala.

The keynote speaker at the event was to be Sir David Attenborough so the artwork was to reflect his huge contribution to conservation, reflecting the beauty of the natural world, as well as depicting a number of animals named after the man himself.

The artwork was also to take on a child-like quality to reflect the contribution the People’s Postcode Lottery has made to children’s charities.

We delivered a huge, complex illustration and once it was approved we animated it to cover three screens where the animation would be looped throughout the event behind the speakers.

However, almost as soon as the work was complete, live events started being cancelled due to Covid 19 and the Gala was postponed indefinitely.

While it was a big disappointment that the work wasn’t able to be seen in full, the People’s Postcode Lottery did manage to film a presentation before lockdown featuring David Attenborough in front of our illustration.

To see such a living legend in front of our work is a real honour and has certainly made the project worthwhile, even seeing it in its reduced form!

At The 2D Workshop we’re obsessed with the art of filmmaking. Whether we’re creating character designs and animation for a jaw dropping ad campaign, bringing VFX magic to an all-star feature length TV bonanza or writing and developing our own IP to showcase all that we LOVE about film. QUALITY is key.

No matter the project our remit stays the same – provide a UNIQUE, CINEMATIC, ARTISTIC piece that delivers the client’s message in the strongest way possible. We tailor our writing, directing, design and animation to each client’s specific requirements. No two projects are the same which suits us to a tee as we endeavour to develop techniques and styles, continually diversifying our filmmaking arsenal.

Situated in the ever inspiring city of EDINBURGH, The 2D Workshop’s team consume and create as much content as possible with an ENERGY and PASSION that has translated directly into each project we’ve delivered since we set up shop in 2012.

If you have a project that deserves an IMAGINATIVE, DYNAMIC, DEDICATED team bringing it to life, get in touch! We’d love to chat more.
